Showtime Sets Season 5 Fall Premiere For Drama
by Alexandra Del Rosario | Deadline | June 10, 2021
Showtime’s Billions will return for its fifth season this fall.
The Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti-fronted legal drama will return Sunday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with five new episodes.
In the second half of season five, the presence of powerful billionaire Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) sends ripples through Axe Capital and gives Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) a potential new weapon in his fight against Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). Alliances form, get ripped apart and form anew, and everyone from Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon) to Wendy (Maggie Siff) gets roped into the conflict, which comes very close to destroying all they hold dear. The series also stars David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn. Jeanane Garafolo will guest star as Winslow, the hip owner of a legal cannabis corp.
Billions, even before its fifth season launches on Showtime, has been renewed for season six. The sixth season is set to premiere early next year.

We reported earlier here that Dream Horse will be available on Video on Demand (VoD) in the US on Friday, July 11, 2021. Film Stories reports the new live action family film is getting a physical disc release in September as well.
Good new live action family movies are hardly in bountiful supply, and thus it feels like a treat at the moment to have two of them playing in cinemas. One of those films is Disney’s Cruella, but the one that shouldn’t be allowed to fly under the metaphorical radar is Dream Horse.
Starring Toni Collette, Damian Lewis and Owen Teague, it tells the real life story of a woman who persuades a bunch of her friends and fellow villagers in Wales to chip in for a race horse. And whilst the movie itself probably goes where you expect it too, it’s all done really rather well.
The film is currently playing in UK cinemas, but it’s also gone up for preorder on DVD and Blu-ray. If you fancy getting yourself a copy, you can do so here. The film will be released on disc on September 13th of this very year. However, Amazon UK DVD/Blu-Ray states release is December 31, 2021. Or, pre-order your copy directly from Warner Brothers UK shop here.

Welsh-made film Dream Horse is in cinemas and tells the tale of champion racehorse Dream Alliance, who was raised by a Cefn Fforest syndicate. Dream Horse stars Toni Collette and Owen Teale as Jan and Brian Vokes, the animal-loving Cefn Fforest couple who, with Howard Davies and a syndicate of locals, bred and owned the Welsh Grand National winner.
Davies is played by Billions star Damian Lewis, who talks about his fiercely proud Welsh roots, here.
The film is shot almost entirely in Wales, using local people as extras, and filmmakers built a brand new allotment here just for the movie.
