Showtime will continue investing in Billions: The premium cabler has renewed its drama series for Season 5.
“Billions‘ addictive examination of wealth and power is supremely entertaining, smart and surprising,” said Gary Levine, co-president of entertainment at Showtime. “We’re loving Season 4 and can’t wait to buckle up for the wild ride that Brian [Koppelman] and David [Levien] and their brilliant cast have in store for us in Season 5.”
In the show’s fourth season — which is currently airing Sundays at 9/8c — former enemies Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) have formed an uneasy but effective alliance in an attempt to eradicate all of their rivals. The season will wrap up on Sunday, June 9.
