Billions Season 6

The award-winning podcast about what’s happening in the world comes back for its sixth season!

AXE

After last night's game-changing Billions season finale, fans will be heartened to know they won't have to wait long for new episodes of the popular Showtime series. But the storyline for season six is shifting, away from the from the cat-and-mouse chase between Chuck (Paul Giamatti) and Axe (Damian Lewis). Instead, Corey Stoll's Michael Prince, Axe's former rival, will return as the show's protagonist. (Source: www.townandcountrymag.com)

“This is not the first time I have said goodbye to Damian Lewis,” said Gary Levine, Showtime’s president of entertainment. “What a testament to his talent that he inhabited two wildly different characters — Axe and Brody — on two of our most successful series — ‘Billions’ and ‘Homeland’ — and made them both so iconic. He is an extraordinary actor and I hope there will be a third time.” (Source: variety.com Thank you @SHO_Billions thank you @briankoppelman @DavidLevien. A pleasure and a privilege to play Axe for 5 seasons with some of the smartest, funniest most talented cast and crew I’ve worked with. I’ll miss the Billions family. Yep, some jobs are more than just a job…. Love. (Source:www.townandcountrymag.com))

 

After over a year away following a pandemic-induced production shutdown, Billions returned for the second half of its fifth season in September and ended with a shocking twist. The endlessly entertaining battle between hedge fund boss Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) and Attorney General Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giamatti) has, at least temporarily, come to a close. With Season 5 all wrapped up, it's reasonable to get a little greedy and ask the all-important question: When will there be a Season 6? And what will an Axe-less Billions even look like?

Though Axe is obviously going to be hiding out in Switzerland for the time being, expect to see more from Chuck, Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), Mike "Wags" Wagner (David Costabile), and Kate Sacker (Condola Rashād) as the storylines spill over into Season 6. Corey Stoll, who plays the Axe enemy Mike Prince, has also been upgraded to a series regular for Season 6, so he's not going anywhere. He even sat in Axe's chair in the Season 5 finale. According to Variety, Daniel Breaker, who plays Prince's right-hand man Scooter, will also be upped to a series regular in Season 6. (Source: www.thrillist.com)

More significantly, the show will have to fill the void left by Axe's departure. Prince will clearly play the role of Chuck-antagonizing villain to some extent, but he's a very different character and he will likely have a very different dynamic with Chuck, Wendy, and Taylor. At the end of Season 5's finale "No Direction Home," Mafee and Dollar Bill left Axe Cap to potentially start their own company, so expect that storyline play out in the background as Chuck sets his sights on Prince and, as he says in the Season 6 teaser, wages a war against "the criminally rich." There are plenty of battles ahead. (Source: www.thrillist.com)

Malin Åkerman as Lara Axelrod (starring season 1–3; guest season 4): wife and later ex-wife of Bobby Axelrod and a former nurse (who maintains her professional license). She is from a lower-class, blue-collar upbringing but has left her former self behind. She was devoted to her husband and their children. Her brother Dean was a firefighter who died during the 9/11 attacks. Lara disapproves of Axe's close relationship with Wendy. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
