Season 5 of “Billions” partially aired earlier this year with the first seven episodes debuting on Showtime but unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic, production was shut down before the final five episodes could be filmed. While nothing has been completely determined yet, the current hope is that “Billions” can return to production in early 2021 to film the final five episodes for season 5 and then move right into production on season 6.
More good news for “Billions” — Corey Stoll, who joined the series in season 5 to play billionaire Mike Prince — a formidable opponent for Bobby Axelrod — will be sticking around. In fact, Stoll has now been upped to a series regular for season 6, which means he’ll be around to drive Axe crazy for quite some time.
“Billions” season 5 saw Axe’s feud with Chuck reignited after the former enemies attempted to co-exist as friends. Once that partnership fizzled out, Chuck gained a renewed sense of purpose to go after Axe and put him behind bars. Meanwhile, Taylor Mason is back at Axe Capitol after they were forced to return following their own hedge fund being shut down.
Now Taylor is playing the long game in order to watch Axe and Chuck take aim at each other while they prepare to move out of the way once the bullets start flying.
The first seven episodes of “Billions” season 5 are currently available through Showtime — as well as our top 10 moments for each and every episode — with the remainder of season 5 expected to air in 2021.
