Billions Season 5 Returns in 2021 and Renews for Season 6

by Elaine Low | Variety | October 1, 2020

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.”

Frank Grillo recently joined InsideHook readers for an intimate live conversation hosted by contributor Charles Thorp. The hard-working actor went in-depth on his experience joining the cast of the Showtime hit Billions as artist Nico Tanner, his work in Marvel’s Avengers franchise as Crossbones, and Netflix’s recent acquisition of his MMA-based series Kingdom.

You can read their conversation, which has been edited and condensed for clarity, below.

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.
