Billions - Season 6

Billions is an American drama television series created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin. The series premiered on Showtime on January 17, 2016, and has produced six seasons to date. The series is set primarily in New York and Connecticut.

Some plotlines mirror real-life prosecutions of financial crime by federal authorities. The series was inspired by the investigations undertaken by Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan from 2009 to 2017, on whom Rhoades is based.[1][2] Bharara's 2013 prosecution of hedge fund manager Steven A. Cohen of S.A.C. Capital Advisors loosely influenced the first season, while Salomon Brothers' 1991 manipulation of U.S. Treasury bonds inspired the second.[3] The series also interweaves subplots with Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), a psychiatrist turned performance coach, Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), a market analyst, and Mike "Wags" Wagner (David Costabile), Axelrod's right-hand man.

The series has received generally positive reviews. Billions is considered the first American TV series to have a non-binary character (Taylor Mason).[4][5] As such, it was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series in the 29th, 30th, 31st GLAAD Media Awards for its representation of the LGBTQ community. The series has been nominated for multiple Satellite Awards, a Critics' Choice Television Award and an Artios Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Pilot Casting, the latter for its pilot episode. The show's coverage of the hedge fund industry has been recognized as realistic.[6][7] The fifth season premiered on May 3, 2020;[8][9] however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 7 of the 12 episodes in that season aired that year.[10] The fifth season resumed airing on September 5, 2021.[11] In October 2020, the series was renewed for a sixth season which premiered on January 23, 2022.[12][13] From the sixth season onwards, Lewis left the series and Corey Stoll took the lead role as Mike Prince.[14] In February 2022, the series was renewed for a seventh season.[15]

The series was ordered by Showtime in March 2015,[28] and the first season premiered on January 17, 2016.[29] On January 26, 2016, the series was renewed for the second season,[30] which premiered on February 19, 2017.[31] Showtime confirmed in April 2017 that Asia Kate Dillon, who is non-binary, would be a series regular in the third season.[5] Billions is considered to be the first American TV series to have a non-binary character.[4]

On May 8, 2019, the series was renewed for a fifth season by Showtime,[33] which premiered on May 3, 2020.[34] Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 7 episodes from Season 5 have aired as of February 2021. On October 1, 2020, Showtime renewed the series for a sixth season and Corey Stoll was promoted to series regular, with remaining episodes of Season 5 set to air in 2021.[12][35][36] On February 15, 2022, Showtime renewed the series for a seventh season.[15]

The show captured the attention of the BDSM community, as it features numerous depictions of BDSM activitiy, and the two main characters of Charles "Chuck" Rhoades, Jr and his wife Wendy Rhoades engage in BDSM scenes numerous times in the early seasons of the show. In addition, season 4 of the show depicts the character of Chuck Rhoades coming out as a practitioner of BDSM in a public political speech. The show's producers retained the services of noted BDSM lifestyle expert Olivia Troy as a consultant to help ensure the activities are portrayed both accurately and safely.[40]

In 2017, after introducing Taylor Mason (played by Asia Kate Dillon) in season 2,[54] Billions became the first American TV series to have a non-binary character and actor.[55][56] The series has received positive comments because of its representation of non-binary gender,[57] with praise for its depiction of inclusion of gender-neutral singular they pronouns in the workplace.

It's safe to say that season six will be very different in many ways without the idiosyncrasies of Axe - and very similar in others, as Chuck will find himself in another financial battle of wills with Mike Prince, the new owner of Axe's companies.

The cast and crew then shot season six along with the second half of season five, meaning fans will be returning to the world of New York billionaires, ruthless vulture capitalists and global high finance very soon.

Billions season six will debut in the US on Showtime on Sunday 23rd January 2022, just months after the fifth season's finale. Such a short space between the two seasons will work favourably for Showtime, as audiences will be eager to see what happens next.

There'll be one less billionaire competing in power plays in season six, as Bobby Axelrod has cashed out. In a shock exit, co-lead Damien Lewis has left his iconic role as Axe after five seasons, with his character fleeing to Switzerland after finally being outmaneuvered in the season five finale.

The show still has one original lead though in the form of Paul Giamatti, who will be returning as US attorney and Axe's long-time rival Chuck Rhoades. With Axe now out of the picture, Chuck will now be turning his attention to Mike Prince, played by House of Cards actor Corey Stoll who has been promoted to series regular for the upcoming season.

Billions season five saw Axe struggle to start up his own bank as Chuck tries to cut him off at every turn. Their battle has always be the central conflict of the series, making Lewis' exit all the more shocking - so it's safe to say there will be a bit of a reset next season.

"So I would just say Billions season 6 really does have all the stuff you love about the tone and ensemble and feel," Koppelman told Entertainment Weekly. "It is a Billions season, but it is structured differently; it's the next evolution of the show. But the characters are still set.

Indeed the fallout from season five has left Wags to face the legal problems that Axe left behind, while Wendy will be processing the one-two hit of failed romances with both Axe and Tanner. Taylor will also continue to be wrestling with thier conscience, after helping to take down Axe only seemed to make them feel sorry for the hedge fund manager.

The tug of war between New York power players Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Damian Lewis) will resume in 2021 when part 2 of Billions season 5 premieres. Not long after the May 2020 premiere, the coronavirus pandemic shut down production on several shows. In April 2020, the Hollywood Reporter shared the news that Billions planned to resume production late last year, but several months into 2021, an official air date has not been announced.

Last October, Showtime announced that Billions would return for a sixth season, before the second half of season 5 aired. No official release date has been announced, but many productions are just waiting for the greenlight from their studios as COVID-19 restrictions decrease. After the rest of season 5 finishes rolling out in October, season 6 will more than likely premiere at the end of 2022. As the world returns to normal, fans of the supercharged series can cash in on the quick-witted dialogue that's made the show so popular.

The main cast of Billions is sure to return, with the addition of Corey Stoll, who's been added as series regular Mike Prince. While Chuck and Wendy attempted to work through their separation in season 5, new love interests entered their lives. The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies guest starred as Catherine "Cat" Brant, a professor interested in exploring the public fallout of Chuck's career as a federal prosecutor. She doesn't judge his sexual behavior, which opens him up to her even more. Frank Grillo also guest starred as the reclusive artist Nico Tanner, who captured Wendy's heart and a significant amount of her attention. Her focus on Tanner rattles Bobby, who unleashes a deceptive amount of control on the artist he's backing financially. If Wendy and Chuck are still open to romance, audiences could see the return of Catherine and Nico in season 6.

The meat of the series is, of course, the cat and mouse game between Chuck and Bobby. In season 3, there was an alliance formed between the pair, but neither could inevitably let go of their egos, which always forms conflict between the two. As Chuck continues to interrupt Bobby's goal of chartering his own bank, another alliance in season 6 is unlikely to happen. Billions has never run out of drama, and the next season should give viewers the fix they craved.

Bobby Axelrod is a monster and he does not hesitate to reveal it. Mike Prince, on the other hand, pretends he is there to do good but he is as big a monster as Axe is. And, yeah, he even attempted to buy the White House with his billions in crypto! WTF?

In a New York Times interview, the actor revealed that his contract on the series was always for five seasons, and he simply chose not to renew it when it lapsed. He also added that the death of his wife (actor Helen McCrory) this year did not factor into his decision.

The actor broke a five-month Twitter silence to say goodbye to the show, writing: "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."

Production crews for "Billions," now in its fifth season (which began Sept. 5) were reportedly at Westchester Country Club this week shooting scenes, according to posting on the site Season six is due to premiere Jan. 22, 2022 041b061a72
