After months of waiting and trying to steer clear of spoilers galore online, the Ballers UK premiere date has finally been set for September. Dwayne Johnson leads the HBO sports comedy, which has already been renewed for a second season.
The series kicked off back in June in the US, with Season 1 coming to an end this weekend. When HBO announced the American premiere date back in the spring, Sky Atlantic was still keeping quiet on when the Ballers UK date was being set for.
June came and went, as did July. But now the network has confirmed that Johnson and co. will be heading to our screens on September 8th, airing on Tuesday nights in a 10 p.m. slot.
Set in Miami, Ballers is a half-hour dramedy centered on a group of current and former professional football players, as well as their families, friends, and handlers. The series goes beyond the game and explores not only the challenges that current players face, but also takes a behind-the-scenes, real look into their lives both on and off the field.
Johnson leads the ensemble cast, sharing the screen with Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Miller, Donovan W. Carter, London Brown, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, and Dulé Hill.
The newly-announced Ballers UK premiere date sees the series air an hour after Aquarius, the David Duchovny-led crime drama inspired by Charles Manson and the Manson family.
