Strasmore and Issa, it seems, are forever linked. For the third year in a row, these two characters have been appearing back-to-back in their respective shows each summer. And is the custom with these shows, BALLERS and INSECURE are mentioned as a comedic duo to announce that they are returning in 2019. Via an official HBO press release, we learn of their renewal once again as a comedic tag team.
HBO has renewed the comedy series BALLERS for a fifth season and INSECURE for a fourth season, it was announced by Amy Gravitt, executive vice president, HBO Programming.
Exploring the glamorous and often cutthroat world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game, BALLERS stars Dwayne Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players. Created by Stephen Levinson (HBO’s BOARDWALK EMPIRE), the hit comedy series returned for its nine-episode fourth season on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 10:00pm. Other cast regulars for the current season include John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown and Brittany S. Hall. Season four credits: BALLERS was created by Stephen Levinson; executive produced by Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Rob Weiss, Denis Biggs, Karyn McCarthy and Julian Farino.
In 2019 Strasmore and company will no doubt still be at the heart of the deal to keep players in the game!
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. Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Lisa Joyce, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales and Y’lan Noel star in the hit comedy series, which returned for its eight-episode third season Sunday, Aug. 12 at 10:30pm.
