Fans gush over renewal of their favorite financial drama, ‘Billions’! Know all the details!!
Showtime’s will continue to entertain the Drama fans with season 6 of their favorite show ‘Billions.’ The television network expects the makers to schedule the remaining episodes of the previous season in 2021.
The story revolves around a hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis), how he garners his wealth and might in the world of large financial centers, New York and Connecticut. We saw a new addition in season 5, Mike Prince (Corey Stoll), who will now be part of the forthcoming seasons. Season 5 unveiled the fiery feud between the fund manager and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), and the character of Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) returned to work with Axelrod.
It is not the first time we have seen a conflict between these two powerful men in the series. Though Bobby has been a kind humanitarian, his ways of acquiring “moolah” have not appealed to the US Attorney (Chuck).
Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin created this financial thriller. The first episode premiered on January 17, 2016, and the phenomenal ensemble has been entertaining the admirers for five seasons.
What is remaining in season 5, and what to expect from season 6?
Season 5 premiered in May 2020. The show aired for seven episodes before the pandemic compelled the production to stop the further shooting. We already know about the clash between the leads and the return of Taylor to Axe Capital. Another interesting twist in the tale is district advocate Mary Ann Gramm (Roma Maffia) sabotaging Chuck from all his critical cases. Alongside, Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) gets involved with alliances that put her bond with Axe and Chuck on stake. The climax left on a cliffhanger, but the remaining episodes may clear some of the dilemmas.
Showtime has had some fantastic shows, but it has renewed very few of them, of which Billions and The Chi are lucky ones. The popularity of the show made it quite evident that the fans wanted more of it. Neither the makers nor the network has made any official announcements if season 6 will last. Though the engaging plot indicates, there is a lot of story left to tell. However, the creators need to provide a satisfying ending, unfold the mysteries in a worthwhile finale if it the last one.
