Written By GingersnapComments Off on Billions Season 5 Split In Two – April 1, 2020
CoVid-19 Temporarily Suspends Filming
by Nellie Andreeva | Deadline | April 1, 2020
This is not an April Fool’s joke. Deadline reports Billions season five will split into two.
Showtime has made more adjustments to its schedule as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which suspended all Hollywood production.
Black Monday and Billions, which were in production on their current/upcoming seasons when the shutdown occurred, will air partial seasons, with the rest of the episodes running at a later date after all production has been completed.
For both the unexpected spring finales will come at a natural point in the story arcs of their seasons. Showtime already two weeks ago moved in to stagger the remaining finished original episodes of Black Monday by shifting the comedy’s air pattern from two back-to-back new episodes premiering a week to one, beginning March 22, continuing through Sunday, April 12. The April 12 Episode 6 of Black Monday will be the last of the current batch.
In season five of Billions, Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Social impact pioneer Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) poses a true threat to Axe’s dominance, and Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney (Roma Maffia). Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) is forced back to Axe Capital, where Taylor must fight to protect their employees and their assets. Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) reevaluates her loyalties and forges surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe. This season, the struggle for power becomes a struggle for survival, and all characters must adapt or risk extinction. Season 5 premieres on Sunday, May 3 at 9/8c.
