Billions Season 5 Returns This Fall

Showtime Sets Season 5 Fall Premiere For Drama

by Alexandra Del Rosario  | Deadline  | June 10, 2021

Showtime’s Billions will return for its fifth season this fall.

The Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti-fronted legal drama will return Sunday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with five new episodes.

In the second half of season five, the presence of powerful billionaire Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) sends ripples through Axe Capital and gives Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) a potential new weapon in his fight against Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). Alliances form, get ripped apart and form anew, and everyone from Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon) to Wendy (Maggie Siff) gets roped into the conflict, which comes very close to destroying all they hold dear. The series also stars David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn. Jeanane Garafolo will guest star as Winslow, the hip owner of a legal cannabis corp.

Billions, even before its fifth season launches on Showtime, has been renewed for season six. The sixth season is set to premiere early next year.

50 Best Shows/Movies on Amazon Prime Video Now

Billions, Season 1-5 Streaming

by Allison Picurro  | TV Guide | May 27, 2021

The joke that “there’s more to Amazon than just free 2-day shipping” has been made too many times to still be funny at this point, but it’s actually true! The streaming service has a whole library of TV shows and movies to check out, and the offerings go beyond the ones you might already know about.

In order to keep the list as relevant as possible, we’re stressing the best recent releases, Amazon Prime Video originals, and critics’ favorites. But we’re also putting our own personal spin on the list, with underrated gems we’ve been recommending to our friends, ageless classics, and important selections that highlight diverse voices.

Billions

For fans of: Capitalism, but make it camp; pissing contests
Number of seasons: 5 (renewed for Season 6, date TBD)

Showtime’s financial soap is part prestige drama and part grown-up frat party, following the reckless assholes of a Wall Street hedge fund as they accumulate wealth and eat sushi off naked women. That grotesquery is off-putting at first, but it soon becomes the reason to watch as the toxic masculinity sirens become music to your ears. And if you enjoy acting, Damian Lewis playing the hedge fund CEO and Paul Giamatti as the government lawyer trying to take him down will please. –Tim Surette [Trailer]

Show Me the Money – Jan 9, 2021

TV Series Industry Cashes In On Finance Drama Boom

by Michael Idato | The Sydney Morning Herald | January 9, 2021

In an economic era increasingly defined by tax avoidance, inequality and constant disruption, it seems unlikely that financial web-spinners in expensive suits would become the poster children of TV’s most popular dramas.

And yet the success of shows including Billions, about the exploits of scheming billionaire Bobby Axelrod, Black Monday, which chronicled the preamble to the 1998 stock market collapse, and Devils, about key players in an investment bank tied to the 2008 financial crisis, speaks for itself.

The 10 Best TV Needle Drops of 2020 – Dec 29, 2020

2020 Best TV Songs/Soundtrack Moments

by Sean T. Collins | Vulture | December 29, 2020

“Vision” is right there in the name of the damn thing, but as a medium, television is as much dependent on sound as it is on sight. This year, from comedies to dramas, from terrestrial networks to streaming services, a good soundtrack was often as big a part of a show’s critical conversation, and as crucial a component in separating great TV from the rest of the pack, as any other element. As part of our annual holiday tradition, we’re once again counting down the year’s top music cues, for those glorious moments when sound and vision collide. Crank ’em up!
