Billions: A Proper Send-Off

Story by Jack Foley

BILLIONS has been renewed for a fifth season by Showtime.

The Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti-led drama series has been picked up for another run as it prepares to wrap its critically-acclaimed fourth season on June 9 (in the US).

Announcing the renewal, Showtime Entertainment co-president Gary Levine said: “Billions‘ addictive examination of wealth and power is supremely entertaining, smart and surprising. We’re loving season four and can’t wait to buckle up for the wild ride that Brian and David and their brilliant cast have in store for us in season five.”

Billions comes from the creative minds of show-runners Brian Koppelman and David Levien, as well as Andrew Ross Sorkin. It offers up a highly compelling contemporary tale of power politics that is set in the Manhattan world of high finance.

In its fourth season, Billions is averaging 4.2 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms in the US, while proving to be one of Sky Atlantic’s big hitters.

This season features John Malkovich, Kevin Pollack and Clancy Brown alongside Maggie Siff, Asia Kate Dillion, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin, Jeffrey DeMunn and Malin Akerman.
