The clock as run out on The Rock’s HBO series Ballers, which will come to an end with its upcoming fifth season. THR reports that the football-themed comedy, which Johnson stars in and executive produces, will be airing its last episodes when it returns on Sunday.

According to the site, producers created the fifth season with a specific endgame in mind, as the series’ end was decided on well in advance. Johnson posted to Instagram confirming that this is the show’s final season, as you can see below.

This season finds Spencer (Johnson) settling into retirement and reflecting on his past, when an offer that’s too good to refuse comes his way and sends him back into the lion’s den, this time as a team owner. In the wake of his split with Spencer, an ambitious Joe (Rob Corddry) gambles aggressively to make Sports X greater than ever with the help of his new partner, Lance (Russell Brand). Meanwhile, Ricky (John David Washington) has a startling setback that forces him to consider a new kind of future and tests his physical, mental and emotional resolve; Charles (Omar Miller) learns that being a general manager means getting your hands dirty; Vernon (Donovan W. Carter) shifts his focus to his love of professional gaming despite Reggie’s (London Brown) wariness; and Jason (Troy Garity) decides to take his career to the next level.
