HBO announced today that Ballers has been renewed for a second season. The freshman dramedy, which is star Dwayne Johnson's first lead role in a scripted series, is off to a solid start through its first three weeks. Along with early critical acclaim, the show's premiere episode has amassed 8.9 million viewers across HBO's platforms, which makes it the cable network's most-watched first episode of a half-hour series since 2009.

Seven episodes remain in Season 1 of Ballers, with new episodes airing Sunday nights at 10:00pm. Look for Season 2 in 2016.
