HBO football comedy Ballers, starring Dwayne Johnson, has been renewed for a third season.
“Dwayne Johnson, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg and the rest of the Ballers team have once again delivered a winner for our viewers,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in a statement. “We look forward to another great season of Ballers next year.”
The news comes hot on the heels of second season premiere. It averaged 9.1 million US viewers in season one, while the season two premiere has grabbed 5.7 million viewers so far.
Meanwhile, Johnson is also developing a 1980s-set bodybuilding drama titled Muscle Beach at USA Network, on top of his feature film commitments.
Ballers screens in Australia on Showcase.
