Showtime Reveals Return Date for Season 5 of 'Billions'

Showtime has today announced the return date for the fifth season of its original drama series Billions.

The final five episodes of the fifth season will begin airing on Sunday, September 5 at 9/8c. The drama has already been renewed for a sixth season, which will premiere in early 2022.

In the second half of the season, the presence of powerful billionaire Mike Prince sends ripples through Axe Capital and gives Chuck Rhoades a potential new weapon in his fight against Bobby Axelrod. Alliances form, get ripped apart and form anew, and everyone from Taylor to Wendy gets roped into the conflict, which comes very close to destroying all they hold dear.

The drama stars Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Maggie Siff, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon, Kelly AuCoin, Jeffrey DeMunn and Corey Stoll.

Brian Koppelman and David Levien serve as showrunners.
