Billions Season 4 will happen next year, Showtime has announced. The smash hit drama, which stars the always-fantastic Paul Giamatti and the dashing, flame-haired star of the oft-referenced-by-DoG Dreamcatcher, Damian Lewis, was picked up at the cable network this week, some time after the season 3 premiere scored the show’s highest ever ratings. Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s cutthroat series is now Showtime’s second most-watched, after Homeland (which, as you may recall, also starred the irrepressible Lewis during its first seasons).
“Billions continues to build its audience as it explores the heights of power and wealth even as it plumbs the depths of the human psyche,” said Gary Levine, President of Programming at Showtime Networks Inc. “Brian and David are gifted, propulsive storytellers and we can’t wait to see where they and their extraordinary cast will take us in season four.”
Both Giamatti and Lewis are likely to return to their roles as Chuck and Bobby in season 4 of Billions, along with supporting cast members Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon and Jeffrey DeMunn…unless some unknown and disasterous fate should pluck the characters from the story during the final episodes of season 3.
More as we have it.
