Ballers, Insecure Renewed by HBO


HBO has renewed the comedy series Ballers for a fourth season and Insecure for a third.

Ballers, which stars Dwayne Johnson, looks at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players. Created by Stephen Levinson (Boardwalk Empire), the comedy returned for its ten-episode third season on July 23.

Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, Insecure follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences. The show returned for its eight-episode sophomore run on July 23 as well.

“We’re thrilled that the summer lineup of Ballers and Insecure connected with our viewers out of the gate,” said Amy Gravitt, the executive VP of HBO programming. “We’re so proud to work with Dwayne, Issa and all of the amazing talent in both shows.”
