Spoilers for Sunday’s season 5 finale of Billions.
Bobby Axelrod has finally escaped the grasp of Chuck Rhoades, but at what cost? All his dang money, is what cost! Shortly after the Billions season 5 finale, Deadline reported that Damian Lewis will not be coming back for season 6. Mike Prince (Cory Stoll) owns all his companies, and Axe finally know what it feels like to lose. Series EP Brian Koppelman praised Lewis on Twitter after the finale, saying that working with the actor was an “incredible joy.” On behalf of himself and David Levine, Koppelman thanked Lewis “for the work, of course, and the fellowship, and for all you sacrificed to come do this with us.”
