Billions, one of the best primetime dramas on television, has earned a fourth season from Showtime. The critically acclaimed series currently ranks behind Showtime’s Homeland as the network’s number two drama, and its season three premiere was up 23% over season two’s first episode.
Season three had been airing on Sundays at 10pm but will move to 9pm on Sundays beginning on May 6, 2018 for the remainder of the season.
Billions was created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, with Koppelman and Levien serving as executive producers and showrunners. The cast is led by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis and Oscar nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man, Barney’s Vision, John Adams). Season three also stars Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon, Jeffrey DeMunn, and Clancy Brown.
“Billions continues to build its audience as it explores the heights of power and wealth even as it plumbs the depths of the human psyche,” said Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. “Brian and David are gifted, propulsive storytellers and we can’t wait to see where they and their extraordinary cast will take us in season four.”
Details on Season 3: Season three of Billions finds Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) in a world that has shifted on its axis. Both men are still determined to destroy the other, but must also battle for their own survival amid new forces and powerful enemies. Wendy Rhoades (Siff), Chuck’s wife and Axe’s performance coach, is all in for both of them, an uneasy and dangerous position for her, and one that ultimately puts her to a decision that could alter the direction of her life irrevocably. Money, power, justice and revenge are all on the line for each of these characters as well as those played by the rest of the stellar cast.
