Billions renewed for season 6
A release date for this upcoming series is not yet known.
US network Showtime has opted to renew its hit financial thriller Billions for a sixth season.
It was also announced that the last five episodes of its fifth season will premiere sometime in 2021, with production set to resume “soon” after it was shut down earlier in the year due to COVID-19.
The last episode of Billions ended with hedge fund manager Axe (Damien Lewis) on a quest to destroy his new rival and fellow businessmen Mike Prince (Corey Stoll).
Meanwhile, New York attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) attempted to save his ailing father Chuck Sr (Jeffrey DeMunn).
All of the above are expected to return for this upcoming sixth season along with Maggie Siff as Chuck’s ambitious wife Wendy, Asia Kate Dillion as financial analyst Taylor Mason and Kelly AuCoin as Axe’s loyal employee Bill Stearn.
It’s not been confirmed whether or not this sixth season will be Billions last.
Billions was created by Andrew Ross Sorkin, Brian Koppelman and David Levien with the latter two acting as showrunners.
The first four seasons of Billions are available to stream on NOW TV.
