Word is out this evening that Ballers will be coming to an end after its upcoming fifth season. Star Dwayne Johnson made the announcement on his Instagram account, posting a four minute video of gratitude to the show's fans.

The series has had a successful run for the cable network, ranking as its top-rated comedy over the last five years while garnering solid critical praise along the way. In his first lead role in a scripted series, Johnson plays an ex-football player-turned-financial manager for current players in Miami.

The fifth and final season of Ballers premieres on Sunday, August 25.
