Showtime Renews 'Billions' For A Third Season
Today's news from Showtime should come as know surprise to fans of the series Billions.
Showtime has picked up the hit drama series Billions for a third season.
Billions stars Oscar® nominee and Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Paul Giamatti, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis, Maggie Siff and Malin Akerman, Billions airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“Billions continues to be a show on the rise, growing not only in audience, but in critical buzz and cultural relevance,” said David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. “It offers a unique mix of pure entertainment with sly commentary on our current have/have-not economy. Season two is off to a tremendous start, and has only whetted our audience’s appetite for what will come in season three.”
Season two of Billions picked up immediately after the season one finale, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Lewis), scorching the earth in a costly war for personal domination.
It's law versus money, with power, sex, and the soul of New York in the balance.
Billions is created, written and executive produced by showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien.
