And now that they have dropped the official teaser for Season 5, I am in such a Billions state of mind that I just sat down and wrote about what to expect when we are expecting Billions Season 5!

At Odds Again

“People like us must destroy people like him…”
With the return of Billions just three months away, Showtime has dropped an exciting first teaser trailer for season 5.
And in it, we get our first look at new characters played by Julianna Margulies and Corey Stoll.
Stoll’s character, business titan Michael Prince, appears to be at odds with Axe (Damian Lewis) as he declares, “When I compete, I’m gonna win.”
And it looks like Axe and Chuck’s (Paul Giamatti) alliance may be on even shakier ground than where we left off, as Axe threateningly reminds him, “I want you to remember that when we weren’t friends, the world was a very uncomfortable place.”

Chuck and Axe: Rivalry Reignited and New Enemies Take Aim
by Derek Lawrence | Entertainment Weekly | February 7, 2020
Billions has made two big acquisitions for season 5.
EW has an exclusive first look at Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards) in the upcoming installment of Showtime’s hit drama. Invest your time in the new teaser here, and the images here.
Series creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien tell EW they’d been trying to enlist the two actors since Billions launched in 2016, but the timing never worked out. Or, as Stoll says with a laugh, “Frankly, I was holding out for something a bit more exciting in terms of the role.” Either way, Koppelman and Levien’s persistence paid off.

Adapt or Risk Extinction

The long wait is over. Billions has just dropped the first teaser-trailer for Season 5! ENJOY! View our Gallery here.
In season five of Billions, Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Social impact pioneer Mike Prince (Stoll) poses a true threat to Axe’s dominance, and Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney. Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) is forced back to Axe Capital, where they 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. Margulies will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author. The series also stars David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn. Season 5 will premiere on Sunday, May 3 at 9/8c on SHOWTIME.
TV Guide Ranks Peak TV’s Finest Offerings
by Liam Matthews | TV Guide | September 9, 2019
Game of Thrones‘ watch has ended, Fleabag raised an eyebrow to us for the last time, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend took its final bow, and The Big Bang Theory finally fixed that dang elevator. The last 12 months brought fans of some of television’s biggest shows the one thing they’ve been missing: closure.
But even after the conclusion of so many important series, thus rendering those programs ineligible for our ranking of the 100 best shows on right now (words mean stuff!), the caliber of content may be stronger than ever before. In the last month alone, viewers have been able to watch new episodes of GLOW, Succession, Dear White People, and Power, and catch up on beloved series like The Crown, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Supernatural, and The Good Fight before their new seasons premiere. And who hasn’t gotten sucked into a marathon of SVU or Snapped at least once over the past year? This lineup will only grow in the future, with the launch of Disney Plus, Apple TV Plus, HBO Max, NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, and, heck, even Quibi? Quibi! (Say it out loud, it’s fun.)
That’s our take, at least: Whittling down the list of best shows right now from some 1,700 options in this age of Peak TV was a painstaking task, and our editors and writers spent weeks arguing over which shows should make the cut. That some favorites were left off our definitive list speaks to the era; never has watching television been more rewarding than right now. These are the 100 best shows at this very moment.
