BALLERS Season 2 Preview: Spencer Faces Off Against an Old Adversary


“There’s a lot of moments in season 2 [of BALLERS] that are just unexpected,” teases star Dwayne Johnson.

As we dive further into the world of football in Miami, we’re going to meet a new character played by Andy Garcia named Andre. He has a “backstory with Spencer. Friends, but not so much,” says Garcia. The two of them will engage in a tug-of-war over clients throughout the season.

Elsewhere in the new season, Ricky explores his options as a free agent, while getting to know the father who left him behind; Charles tries to balance a new baby and his future in the game; and Vernon deals with the consequences of his life off the field.

In the season premiere, Spencer is convinced to appear on a talk show and ends up “facing off with an old adversary”, according to HBO, “which puts his company and reputation in jeopardy.” Given the teaser below, it’s likely he’ll be going head-to-head with Andre. Elsewhere, Ricky gets bad news in advance of his 30th birthday party and Charles relishes his new status as a fan favorite, but may face changes on the field.

BALLERS returns for its second season on July 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and HBO Canada.
