Fan Favorite: Axe is Back for Season 7
by Rosy Cordero | Deadline | February 27. 2023
Damian Lewis is bringing back Bobby Axelrod as he sets his return to the Showtime series Billions for Season 7. Lewis will appear in six of the 12 episodes when the show premieres later this year.
“Bobby’s back,” Lewis told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. “Axe is back, and it’s exciting. He’s not been around for a couple of seasons.” (We totally called it based on this circumstantial evidence here)
Season 7 was ordered less than two weeks ago and according to Showtime’s Press Release, “Alliances are turned on their heads. Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby “Axe” Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.”
Lewis is back as “Axe” opposite Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll and Maggie Siff. Billions also stars Kelly AuCoin, David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Condola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sakina Jaffrey and Daniel Breaker. Additionally, Toney Goins, who plays Philip has been upped to series regular.
Production is underway in New York City.
