Ballers Season 6 Recap – What Has Happened So Far?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars as a retired football player who tries to resurrect his career as a financial manager for current players in Miami. Spencer establishes a client base of young phenoms and seasoned stars alike, following his employer Joe’s advice to “monetize his connections,” but his involvement in their lives extends far beyond money management as he tries to assist them to negotiate the various pitfalls that come with life as big-time “Ballers.” Ballers’ debut season is all about a newcomer trying to find his place in the new arena.
Spencer somehow finds the funds to bring the Raiders to Las Vegas at the end of Season 3, but there’s a catch. Spencer, who has been suffering from his own worries chooses to leave the group.
Seasons 4 and 5’s ratings, on the other hand, were a touch lower since the audience believed it wandered off onto a path of less action and more politics. Those plotlines came to a close in Ballers season 5 which ended conclusively, providing all the closure that was required.

Before Ballers may have a season 6, a number of variables must be examined. The programme has yet to receive a sixth season renewal. However, there is one exception if Ballers performs well in the ratings, it is possible that it will be renewed but for now, ballers season 6 stands cancelled.
