Ballers Season 5 trailer still

HBO/YouTube



It's that time of the year again: "Ballers" is coming back.

The HBO comedy-drama starring Dwayne Johnson is about to kick off its fifth season, so the premium network dropped the official trailer on Wednesday. It teases more of Spencer Strasmore (Johnson), a retired football superstar chasing success as a financial manager. The stakes will be high, as the trailer shows, but Spencer seems to have a plan.

"I'm going to do it my way," he says at one point.

There's talk in the preview of destiny, the future and the past, and "the opportunity of a lifetime." Along the way, it also shows glimpses of Joe (Rob Corddry), Charles (Omar Miller), and Ricky (John David Washington), among other familiar faces. There's a lot of wheeling and dealing to come. Watch below.



"Ballers" Season 5 will make its debut on Sunday, Aug. 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. You'll want to stick with it, because as the trailer says, "it's not where you start, it's where you finish."
