‘Insecure’ and Dwayne Johnson’s HBO ‘Ballers’ Set July Premieres
Now that Game of Thrones has shuffled off its usual spring perch alongside Silicon Valley and Veep, it’s going to need company. Enter Issa Rae and Dwayne Johnson, as Insecure Season 2 and Ballers Season 3 officially have their marching orders for July.
Where creator and star Issa Rae gave an early confirmation over Twitter, HBO now backs up that both Insecure and Ballers will return on July 23, one week behind the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones. Ballers will take the 10:00 P.M. slot, followed by Insecure at 10:30.
Worth noting, Ballers will move its third season to California after Florida’s film and television tax incentives program expired last year. The last of the programs funds went to Ballers Season 2 and Netflix’s Bloodline, which itself will now shoot a final season, rather than risk more expensive production costs.
Either way, it will likely be another month or so before we see any real footage from Ballers or Insecure (and who knows for Game of Thrones), so stay tuned fore the latest in the meantime.
