Returning: Ballers

The fourth season of HBO football comedy Ballers has now been given a slot on Showcase.

New episodes began dropping at Foxtel On Demand earlier this month (which you can still check out), but it will begin broadcasting with a double episode on September 9.

Spencer Strasmore and an endearing group of colleagues, rivals and pro-football clients return for a new season of HBO’s hit comedy from Steve Levinson (Entourage) that digs deeper into the extravagant, high-stakes, big-money world of professional football. This season, having refused to compromise his principles by joining an alliance with the filthy-rich Anderson brothers to move a football franchise to Las Vegas, Spencer (Dwayne Johnson) and his partner Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry) set their sights on expanding their firm’s foothold in the client-management business, weighing an opportunity to purchase an extreme-sports LA outfit run by the fiercely autonomous Lance Klians (Russell Brand). Meanwhile, Ricky Jerret (John David Washington) eyes a comeback while chafing at his new life as a father; Charles (Omar Benson Miller) faces the myriad challenges of being a general manager; Vernon (Donovan W. Carter) continues his profligate ways, to the chagrin of his sidekick Reggie (London Brown); and Jason (Troy Garity) tries to set Spencer up with a high-school prodigy, Quincy Crawford, and his equally impressive mother Jayda.

Wednesday September 9 at 10.30pm on Showcase.


  1. I only watched the whole first season of Ballers because of Dwayne Johnson’s role but found my interest drifting away in season 2. I suspect this parochial sports themed show about fame, power and money would be popular in the USA so if Dwayne keeps a place in his busy diary to make more seasons the show will continue in production for a while yet.

  2. I really liked the first season and second was ok but last season was awful, even the great Carey Mahoney couldn’t save it. The first episode of this season didn’t do much for me either.
