So far we know that in season 4, Bobby and Chuck have kept their differences aside and have formed an uneasy but crucial relationship to stand against other rivals.
'Billions' is the most popular American television drama, based on politics in high finance in New York City. The show has already entertained fans for four seasons followed by financial battles, corruptions, controversies between their character, and is now set for the fifth installment. 'Billions' season 5 has got a thumbs-up from US network Showtime, and fans are thrilled to know that it is finally happening! The series is created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin. The series is based on real-life events inspired by people and controversies which includes, New York Attorney General and Governor Eliot Spitzer, former US Attorney Preet Bharara and American investor Steve Cohen.
There hasn't been any update about the release date of the fifth season, but the fifth installment is definitely in its infancy period. According to the co-president of Showtime, Gary Levine, 'Billions’ addictive examination of wealth and power is supremely entertaining, smart and surprising. We’re loving Season 4 and can’t wait to buckle up for the wild ride that Brian [Koppelman] and David [Levien] and their brilliant cast have in store for us in season five.”
In the last four years, the fourth and third seasons premiered in March, and the second season in February and the first-ever season was aired in January. Monitoring the premiere dates of previous seasons, we can expect the fifth installment to happen in 2020. In the US, 'Billions' airs on Showtime and in the UK, it airs on Sky Atlantic.
The fact that season 4 is still airing, it would be hard to judge or guess who we can see in the fifth installment. However, we can see Paul Giamatti reprising his role as the show's main character Charles “Chuck” Rhoades. The character of Chuck is based on the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara. Another character who might return in the fifth season could be Damian Lewis as Robert 'Bobby' Axelrod, whose role is based on S.A.C Capital advisor, Steve Cohen. Mad Men’s Maggie Siff is likely to return as Wendy Rhoades and Trophy Wife Malin Åkerman as Lara Axelrod. Others who are more likely to return are Toby Leonard Moore as Bryan Connerty, David Constable as Mike, Condola Rashād as Kate Sacker, Asia Kate Dillon as Taylor Amber Mason, Jeffrey DeMunn as Charles Rhoades, Sr and Kelly AuCoin as “Dollar” Bill Stern.
The possibility of what will happen in the fifth season is a little hard to say. So far we know that in season 4, Bobby and Chuck have kept their differences aside and have formed an uneasy but crucial relationship to stand against other rivals. We can get a little clearer picture of the fifth season only when season four ends. Episode 10, titled New Year's Day aired on May 26 on Showtime and in the UK it will premiere on May 29. The synopsis for the Billions season four finale reads: “Axe makes a big decision. Connerty gets closer to the truth. Tensions rise, and dynamics shift.”
