Game over.

Dwayne Johnson has announced that season 5 of Ballers, which premieres Sunday, will be the final installment of the hit HBO comedy.

“Cheers to our FINAL SEASON of @HBO’s BALLERS ?,” Johnson wrote on Instagram, alongside a video message to fans. “My heart ? is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’ with us every season.”

The news isn’t a surprise considering Johnson’s busy schedule and the growing profile of costar John David Washington, whom Johnson previously said an emotional goodbye to.
