'Billions' Season 6 Episode 1 Fan review: Viewers go gaga, says 'series earned three more seasons'
Corey Stoll as Mike Prince in 'Billions' (Showtime)

'Billions' Season 6 lacked the punch that Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) provided in the seasons prior, but the Showtime's finance drama ardents were pleased with the season opener. Titled 'Cannonade', the episode deals with the change in the structure with Mike Prince taking over Axe Cap and struggling to make headway with his predecessor's employees.  AG Chuck Rhoades, in the meantime, has taken a break after his failure to collar Axe and has decided to return to his position of power only after registering a win that's akin to restricting the Golden State Warriors below 100.

Twitter had their two cents to share. "I personally doubted that the show would maintain its thrill with Axe out of the way but the preview of season 6 has me gassed up. Apparently we are doing thimgs the Prince way #Billions," one of the tweets read. "Billions season 6 started well....Mike Prince with the big moves and Chuck Rhoades Jnr being himself (although older) I miss Axe though... #Billions," another opined. "I’m watching the @SHO_Billions
season 6 premiere and Prince just uttered the line, “Speaking of bad teeth…” And we have the first Spyros sighting of the new season. Good to see you, @stephenkunken," a comment read.

'Billions' Season 6 Episode 1 Review: Move over Axe, the Mike Prince era has dawned

"BILLIONS Season 6 premiere: I think @briankoppelman & Levien may have bought themselves THREE more seasons with this incredible reinvigoration of the show. What Prince does in the last 10 minutes of the show, I promise you, you will NOT see coming. Let's. Fucking. GOOOOOOOOO," one of the fans remarked. "#Billions season 6 is not very exciting and omg what happened to Paul Giamatti he looks unwell or far older. Not sure Prince can salvage what is left of this series without Axe," a fan wrote.

Some rated most of the shows that premiered over the weekend. "Some Quick TV Notes: #Ozark Season 4 Part 1: Really Liked It @SHO_Billions Season 6 Episode 1: Solid Start To The #PenceCapitalEra #AmericanAuto continues to entertain," a tweet read.
