Billions has been renewed for a sixth season at Showtime — and fans will be pleased to know that five new episodes of Season 5 will air in 2021, after the ongoing coronavirus pandemic put a wrench in the premium cabler’s scheduling for the year.
David Costabile, who plays Wags on the show, recently shared with TV Fanatic that season 5 filming would commence around March, 2021 and they will film season 6 back-to-back,
“We will go back and finish the end of the last few episodes of season five, and then we will continue working straight through and shoot season six. So next year, it will be an onslaught of Billions because we will just work from when we start until when we finish season six. They’ve been writing since July, I think. That’s exciting. The writer’s room has been up and swinging. My guess is that by the time we start, everything will be written. We’re probably not starting until around March shooting again, and the [CoVid-19] protocols, my guess, will still be in effect then.”
According to this tweet from the Billions official Twitter account today, Billions season 5 is set to return later this year! Tune in to see the cast return to our screens for the remaining five episodes of the season.

InsideHook: How familiar were you with Billions before you joined?
Frank Grillo: I had no idea this show was this big. I did it because I had some down time, and I swear to God I have never been more bombarded by people on a project that I have done. I have to say I agree that it is one of the better shows on television, and no question one of the greatest casts on television. So to step in during their fifth season was a huge pleasure.
