'Billions' Season 5: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Showtime drama series

An attorney and a hedge fund manager, both power-hungry, try to outshine one another
UPDATED APR 21, 2020

Television’s foray into the realm of finance and business has given us some good shows. The US drama-series 'Billions' is one such work, which, through its four seasons, has tickled our imagination. The series revolves around the lives of US Attorney Chuck Rhoades and hedge fund expert Bobby Axelrod, who are two power-hungry individuals constantly trying to outmaneuver each other. Showtime’s banner series has announced its next installment and here’s all you need to know about the show.

Release date

The fifth season of 'Billions' will premiere May 3 on Showtime at 9 pm ET.



In the previous season of 'Billions', we saw Chuck and Bobby along with Wendy form a rather unsettling alliance only to eliminate all their rivals. Season 5 will follow the game plans of the characters to emerge as the most powerful, and how they are highly driven by their ambition and desires, often overpowering the other characteristics.

Margulies will be seen as Catherine Brant, an Ivy League Sociology Professor. Meanwhile, Stoll will play the role of business titan Michael Prince.


'Billions' is co-created by Brian Koppleman, David Levien, and Adrew Ross Sorkin. While Levine and Koppelman have collaborated for 'Rounders' and 'Ocean's Thirteen', Sorkin is joining them for the first time in Billions.


A new trailer was released on March 19 and captioned, "Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Social impact pioneer Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) poses a true threat to Axe’s dominance and Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney (Roma Maffia). Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) is forced back to Axe Capital, where Taylor must fight to protect their employees and their assets. Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) reevaluates her loyalties and forges surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe. This season, the struggle for power becomes a struggle for survival, and all characters must adapt or risk extinction."
