Billions: Imminent Conclusion
by Sean T. Collins | New York Times | October 26, 2023
In an interview, the showrunners discussed its imminent conclusion and the rise of billionaires who believe they are “making the world a better place.”
As the Showtime financial thriller “Billions” prepares to air its final episode this weekend, it’s worth considering how far we’ve come. The show started as the story of the crusading U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and the hard-charging hedge funder Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Exclusive restaurants, elaborate schemes and a host of cameos by real-world power players provided the backdrop for their battle.
