League of Legends to be Featured in Newest Season of HBO's 'Ballers'
By Nathan Fusco
League of Legends will be featured on the newest season of HBO's show "Ballers," as was revealed Sunday during the LCS summer finals.
It appears the game will be featured in more than one episode, as, after the clip was posted on Reddit, a Riot Games employee wrote that it was going to be a season-long arc, not just one episode.
The show premiered in 2015 and centers around Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a former NFL star who becomes a financial planner for other athletes. This will be the final season of Ballers.
The clip also revealed that Rick Fox will make an appearance, but it's not known for how long or if he will be a recurring role for the last season. The arc seems to be based on a character's interest in esports and maybe even a desire to pursue the passion instead of a career in sports.
League of Legends is wrapping up its summer split and will be heading to the League of Legends World Championship. Tickets will be on sale soon.
