‘Billions’ Season 5 Trailer Features Back-Stabbings, Betrayals, and the Rare “Triple-Cross”

     March 19, 2020

Showtime has released a new trailer for Billions season 5, offering a look at the next chapter in Showtime’s most addictive drama. Julianna Margulies, Corey Stoll, and Frank Grillo join the series alongside mainstays Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, Asia Kate Dillon, David Costabile, and Maggie Siff.

This season looks to dive back into its old rivalries, after ruthless hedgefund billionaire Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) spent season 4 largely united in their quest for vengeance. Not anymore, largely thanks to the presence of a “social impact pioneer” named Michael Prince (Stoll) who challenges Axe Capital’s power. Naturally, Rhoades, smelling blood in the water, tries to use this new dick-measuring contest to his advantage. In classic Billions fashion, expect many back-stabbings, betrayals, and in Rhoades’ own words, the rare “triple-cross.”

Check out the trailer below. Billions season 5 debuts on Sunday, May 3. For more on the series, here is Paul Giamatti discussing the changes on the way.

Here is the official synopsis for Billions season 5:

In season five of BILLIONS, Bobby Axelrod (Damien 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. Season 5 premieres on Sunday, May 3 at 9/8c.
