Showtime has confirmed that the seventh season of their series Billions will be its last. Season 7, which will feature the return of Damian Lewis as Bobby Axelrod, will begin streaming Aug. 11, with an on-air premiere at 8 p.m. ET/PT Aug. 13. Lewis rejoins a cast that includes Paul Giamatti, Maggie Siff, Corey Stoll, David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Dola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sakina Jaffrey, Daniel Breaker and Toney Goins.
Showtime’s description of the final 12-episode season reads of Billions reads: “Alliances are turned on their heads. Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.”
Showtime is developing several spinoffs to Billions (two of which are tentatively titled Millions and Trillions) from co-creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien. Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Media Networks, said in a statement: “’Billions’ has deftly explored power, money and greed in a way that not only made it a massive hit, but also defined its own genre thanks to the creative brain trust of Brian and David. This final season is packed full of the incredible, complex dialogue and character dynamics fans have come to love, and we are thrilled to partner with them on turning this hit series into a global franchise.”
