When Can We Expect the Next Episode of 6 Season of Billions to Air?

Fans did not have to wait long for the Showtime drama to return for its sixth season. Though Billions season 5 ended abruptly due to COVID-related shutdowns, the show’s sixth season is planned to start just a few months after the season 5 finale aired in October. Of course, the end of last season brought about some significant changes to the show, including the departure of a prominent character.

Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin produced Billions, which premiered on Showtime in 2016. (he is not related to Aaron Sorkin, the last name is just a coincidence). Billions has established itself as one of Showtime’s signature television shows, alongside Shameless, The Chi, Homeland, Dexter (and its spinoff series Dexter: New Blood), and the upcoming Yellowjackets. Additionally, as of Feb. 15, according to Variety, we know that Billions will return for a seventh season.

Billions Season 6 Plot

Billions have been a chess battle between New York hedge fund boss Bobby Axelrod (played by Damien Lewis) and US Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), who is pursuing him and his company, Axe Capital, since the series’ inception.
