Till now there is no news regarding any new cast, although she has hinted that this time, the same characters will play their role with a different twist and the show will be shoot at varying locations in different countries.

Ballers Season 4 Plot: What is it about?

Thus far HBO has not officially released the information. Johnson’s partner-in-crime, Rob Corddry who is playing Joe Krutel in Ballers, is really active on social media and hasn’t said a word. Based on previous seasons, season 4 is going to be about Spencer expanding his business Worldwide. It is all about the future of Anderson Sports Management. Will they land the big money clients? Will they branch into multiple sports? Are they going to be involved in more shenanigans with the Raiders? All these questions and more should get answered in season four.

In a clip released by Ballers official account on Instagram from upcoming season 4, Joe is talking about Spencer’s Global Domination and in the reply of same Spencer is saying it is all about Expansion and in another clip Ricky Jerret played by John David Washington, he is the biggest client of Spencer and also a good friend of his, is playing Poker and everbody around him seems Happy and enjoying which probably means Ricky Jerret finally got his shit together and doing great in game, although even without doing great in-game Ricky Jerret always host parties like this, but Spencer is cool which means everything is happening according to the plan, but there is no rain without mud, there is no easy way to execute Spencer’s plan of expansion. Last season was the best season, so it would be exciting to see what are they going to do in Season 4.

Ballers Season 5 Release Date: When will it premiere?

HBO had renewed the comedy-drama for a fourth season which premiered at 10 PM Sunday, August 12. HBO is clearly confident in its current slate of shows, and for good reason. Ballers’ Season three ratings had been very strong, according to TV Series Finale, the success of Season three and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s popularity and hard work had pushed HBO to go for another season. Season 4 is still going strong and there’s no reason to rule out a season 5 renewal. Like its predecessors that saw an early summer release, season 5 should also follow suit when it gets renewed. There’s no confirmation as of now but we are convinced this will be the case.

In a statement, HBO Programming executive vice president Amy Gravitt said, “We’re thrilled that the summer lineup of Ballers and Insecure connected with our viewers out of the gate. We’re so proud to work with Dwayne, Issa [Rae] and all of the amazing talents in both shows.” Watch this space for updates on season 5.
