Preview by Jack Foley

DWAYNE Johnson’s Ballers and Issa Rae’s Insecure have both been renewed for further seasons by HBO.

The shows will get a fifth and fourth season, respectively.

Rae, the creator and star of Insecure, announced the news on Twitter on Thursday. She only recently landed a nomination for lead actress in a comedy series at this year’s Emmys.

The show, which also stars Yvonne Orji, Lisa Joyce, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales and Y’lan Noel, follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.

Ballers, meanwhile, explores the glamorous and cutthroat world of pro football. It marks HBO’s highest-rated comedy.

In addition to Johnson, the show stars John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan W. Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown and Brittany S. Hall.
