A drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Shrewd, savvy U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades and the brilliant, ambitious hedge fund king Bobby "Axe" Axelrod are on an explosive collision course, with each using all of his considerable smarts, power and influence to outmaneuver the other. The stakes are in the billions in this timely, provocative series.
Showtime announced today that Billions has been renewed for a sixth season. The good news comes three months after Season 5 of the critically-acclaimed drama was interrupted because of the production shutdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Billions stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis as two warring power players in the high-stakes world of New York finance. Giamatti plays a shrewd U.S. Attorney who puts his smarts and power up against an ambitious hedge fund manager, played by Lewis, in a bid to outmaneuver each other in a world where billions of dollars are at stake. Corey Stoll, who joined the show this year playing Mike Prince, has been promoted from a guest starring role to series regular for Season 6.
