Dwayne Johnson is back playing Spencer Strasmore with the newest season of Ballers hitting HBO in August. The first three seasons were fun, here's hoping the fourth season continues the trend. Since this is HBO's streaming service you'll have to wait week to week before new episodes come by. I know, it's strange in a post-Netflix world.

Then there's the critically acclaimed comedy, Insecure, returning on the same day as Ballers, Aug. 12. Issa Rae and the entire cast are just fantastic.

Changing gears, some big titles will leave HBO at the end of August. Say goodbye to the Back to the Future trilogy and four Tremors movies. In other news, there are four Tremors movies. Check out the list below:
