Showtime Renews Billions for Season 3
by Tim Surette – TV Guide – March 8, 2017
The struggle of the hedge-fund manager will continue on Showtime.
The network today announced that it has renewed its Wall Street drama Billions for a third season. Showtime didn’t announce an episode count or an estimated premiere date, but history says that the renewal will be for 12 episodes and Season 3 will premiere early next year.
Currently three episodes into its second season, Billions stars Damian Lewis as Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, a filthy rich hedge fund manager who skirts financial laws to add to his ever-increasing coffers. Paul Giamatti plays Chuck Rhoades, a U.S. Attorney bent on taking Axe and the rest of the Wall Street weasels down, but who has some issues of his own.
