Ballers Renewed for Season 3!

Two weeks into Ballers’ sophomore run, the Dwayne Johnson comedy series has been renewed for a third season by HBO. “Dwayne Johnson, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg and the rest of the Ballers team have once again delivered a winner for our viewers,” said HBO programming chief Casey Bloys who developed the series as head of comedy.

Looking at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players, Ballers stars Dwayne Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players in sun-soaked Miami.

The Season 2 premiere episode has amassed 5.7 million viewers to date, with only preliminary data available. Fueled by Johnson’s star power and social media reach, the Season 1 debut drew eye-popping snared 8.9 million viewers across HBO’s platforms, making it the premium pay cabler’s most-watched first episode of a half-hour series since 2009. That prompted another early renewal a couple of weeks into the show’s freshman run. Ballers’ first season went on to average 9.1 million viewers in gross audience – HBO’s biggest half-hour in six years.

In addition to Dwayne Johnson, the cast on season two of Ballers includes Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, London Brown, Arielle Kebbel, Dulé Hill, Richard Schiff and Andy Garcia.

Ballers was created by Stephen Levinson. he executive produces with Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Evan Reilly, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, Denis Biggs.

Kebbel Describes What It’s Like to Film a Love Scene with ‘DJ’

Returning this summer for her second season on Ballers, Arielle Kebbel makes working in her home state extra hot.

As Tracy Legette on HBO’s Ballers, Arielle Kebbel brings the sexy to the sports world, playing the sassy love interest of Dwayne Johnson’s character on the hit show set in Miami. Sometimes, though, it gets a little too steamy. “One time, DJ and I were doing a love scene and I was getting sweaty,” Kebbel says. “When we called cut, I realized one of my pasties had transferred from me to him in the midst of it all, so we had to take a moment to reset.”

Born and raised in Winter Park, Florida, Kebbel spent her childhood either in the water or riding horses, she says. Today she loves filming in Miami, which she calls “an additional character on our show.” Along with Ballers, which returns for its second season on July 17, Kebbel is starring in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, Fifty Shades Freed, in which she plays Gia Matteo. “She is so spicy and causes all sorts of drama,” the actress says. “For me, it’s fun to play in that world.”

While Fifty Shades Freed was shot in Vancouver, Kebbel hopes her next project returns her to the South Florida sun. “I heard they’re making a Bad Boys 3,” she says. “Bring me back to Miami!”
