Emmy nominee Janeane Garofalo (The Larry Sanders Show) is joining the fifth season of Showtime’s hit drama series Billions in a recurring role. The first seven episodes of Season 5 aired from May to June 2020 and the series will return to complete its fifth season later this year.

In season five, Damian Lewis’ Bobby Axelrod and Paul Giamatti’s Chuck Rhoades see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney, played by Roma Maffia. Taylor Mason, played by Asia Kate Dillon, is forced back to Axe Capital, where Taylor must fight to protect their employees and their assets. Wendy Rhoades, played by Maggie Siff, reevaluates her loyalties and forges surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe.

Garofalo will play Winslow, the hip owner of a legal cannabis corp.
