Critically acclaimed drama Billions has been renewed for a sixth season by Showtime. The network hasn’t confirmed when we can expect season six to premiere. Season five’s run was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with five new episodes now scheduled to air in 2021.
In addition to announcing the renewal, Showtime revealed Corey Stoll (House of Cards) has been upped to a series regular. His character, Mike Prince, was introduced as a rival to Damian Lewis’ Bobby Axelrod in season five.
The cast also includes Emmy winner Paul Giamatti as Chuck Rhoades, Asia Kate Dillon as Taylor Mason, and Maggie Siff as Wendy Rhoades. David Costabile plays Mike ‘Wags’ Wagner, Kelly AuCoin is ‘Dollar’ Bill Stearn, Jeffrey DeMunn plays Chuck Rhoades, Sr., and Condola Rashad is Kate Sacker. The Good Wife‘s Julianna Margulies guest stars in season five as Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author Catherine Brant.
Brian Koppelman and David Levien created the series and serve as showrunners and executive producers. Andrew Ross Sorkin also created the drama.
