Fans of the show will be delighted to know that Damian Lewis will be reprising his role as the charismatic Bobby Axelrod, who’s been away in Switzerland. While Corey Stoll’s portrayal of the formidable rival, Mike Prince, was certainly compelling in Bobby’s absence, Axelrod’s return promises to be a highlight of the upcoming season. This also means that Paul Giamatti’s character, Chuck Rhoades, will now have to contend with not one, but two adversaries of considerable stature.

What’s even more exciting is that Billions has already been renewed for a seventh and final season, set to premiere this August, even before the sixth season hit the screens in February 2022.
Billions, the brainchild of creators Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, first graced our screens in January 2016 and has maintained its popularity, becoming Showtime’s longest-running drama series. The initial seasons drew inspiration from real-life financial scandals, including the high-profile prosecution of hedge fund manager Steven A. Cohen of S.A.C. Capital Advisors and the infamous 1991 manipulation of U.S. Treasury bonds by Salomon Brothers. The show’s core narrative revolves around Bobby Axelrod, a hedge-fund mogul with a penchant for aggressive tactics in the pursuit of wealth and power. Naturally, this puts him on the radar of U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades, who staunchly believes that such immense wealth and influence should be curtailed. As the story unfolds, viewers are treated to a gripping saga of power plays, political maneuvering, and high-stakes finance. As the seasons progress, the lines between these two men blur, leading to a riveting showdown of wits and ambition.
Billions, a series that delves deep into the world of cutthroat power dynamics among the wealthy elite, has carved out a dedicated fan base over its impressive six-season run. It’s been a show hailed for its razor-sharp dialogue and riveting performances from the ensemble cast. Billions hasn’t just gained viewership; it’s also earned nominations for various prestigious awards. Notably, it has been celebrated for introducing American television’s first non-binary character, a groundbreaking milestone.
For those who relish tense dramas centered around the lives of the super-rich, Billions is a must-watch, especially if you’ve been yearning for something to fill the void left by a certain hit show, Succession.

Who’s In the Cast of Billions Season 7?
Without a doubt, the core characters that have become synonymous with Billions will be reprising their roles for the highly-anticipated Billions Season 7. This includes the acclaimed and award-winning stars Paul Giamatti as Charles “Chuck” Rhoades, Damian Lewis as Robert “Bobby” Axelrod, and the Golden Globe-nominated Corey Stoll as Michael “Mike” Thomas Aquinas Prince. Rejoining this formidable trio, viewers can also look forward to Maggie Siff’s return as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck’s spouse, and David Costabile as Mike “Wags” Wagner, Axelrod’s trusted right-hand man. Asia Kate Dillon, who has captivated audiences with their portrayal of Taylor Amber Mason, the brilliant financial analyst at Ax Capital, will continue their series regular role, having been a fixture since Season 3.
Furthermore, Billions Season 7 will welcome back other familiar faces, including Condola Rashad as Kate Sacker, Jeffrey DeMunn as Charles Rhoades Sr. (Chuck’s father), Sakina Jaffrey as Daevisha “Dave” Mahar, an associate of Rhoades, and Daniel Breaker as Scooter Dunbar, Prince’s indispensable right-hand figure. Adding to the intrigue, Babak Tafti of Super Pumped fame joined the Season 7 cast in April 2023, taking on the role of Bradford Luke, a high-powered political consultant.
Who’s Making Billions Season 7 (And When Was It Filmed?)
Billions, the captivating Showtime series, was brought to life by the creative minds of Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin in 2016. Koppelman and Levien, a dynamic duo, boast a collaborative history that spans co-writing for notable films such as Runaway Jury, Ocean’s Thirteen, and The Girlfriend Experience. They’ve also showcased their versatility by co-directing films like Knockaround Guys and Solitary Man. In the realm of film production, they’ve contributed to projects like the Edward Norton-led The Illusionist.
On the other hand, Andrew Ross Sorkin, a prominent American journalist renowned for his bestselling work “Too Big to Fail,” is no stranger to the media landscape. His insights and expertise have graced prominent platforms such as NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, the BBC World Service, and even Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, among others. The trio of Koppelman, Levien, and Sorkin not only conceptualized the series but also served as its executive producers. They were joined in this role by Christian Soriano and filmmaker Neil Burger. Notably, the production for the much-anticipated Billions Season 7 commenced in November 2022.
What’s the Plot of Billions Season 7 About?
After the culmination of the fifth season, Axelrod made a significant move by selling his company to Prince and then vanished from the spotlight. This dramatic shift drastically altered the power dynamics among the characters who had long dominated the series. Rhoades, while losing his arch-nemesis in Axelrod, found himself embroiled in a fresh rivalry with Prince, setting the stage for an intense showdown that promises to carry on into Billions Season 7.
As we prepare for the upcoming season, it’s worth noting that Season 6 concluded with Prince facing a staggering financial loss of $3.5 billion, albeit with his political career remarkably intact. On the flip side, Rhoades experienced a brief stint behind bars before being liberated by his associate, Dave. Now, in the highly-anticipated new season, Rhoades is poised to launch an all-out assault on Prince and the reemerging Axelrod. The stakes have never been higher, with each character entering the fray armed with fresh strategies, fiercer determination, and a set of rules that border on the outrageous.
According to Showtime’s official logline, Billions Season 7 promises a narrative that delves into shifting alliances, the resurfacing of old wounds turned into weapons, loyalty put to the ultimate test, and the grandeur of betrayal. Expect the unexpected as former enemies cautiously embrace alliances, and trust becomes a rare commodity. The return of Bobby Axelrod adds an intriguing layer to the escalating tension, with the battleground expanding from Wall Street to a global scale.
So What’s Next for the Billions Franchise?
While the beloved Showtime drama Billions is coming to a close with its upcoming seventh season, its influential legacy will endure through an exciting array of four spinoff series that are currently in development. Among these, we have the fittingly named Millions and Trillions. The Millions spinoff is poised to shift its focus towards a younger generation of up-and-coming players in the high-stakes world of finance, offering fresh perspectives on the intricacies of wealth and power. On the other hand, Trillions is set to introduce a more dramatic and soap opera-inspired take on the Billions franchise, delving deeper into the personal lives and relationships of its characters.
This move to create an “expanded universe” for Billions draws parallels with Paramount’s successful Yellowstone franchise, which has also expanded its storytelling canvas with spinoffs like 1883 and 1923. It’s an exciting development that promises to keep fans of the Billions universe engaged and entertained even after the main series concludes.
