“People like us, we’re different. We need power. We need to feel alive.” So begins the new trailer for season 5 of Showtime’s hit Wall Street drama series Billions with Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) at the brink, each trying to outmaneuver the other.
The series, like virtually all others, has shut down production amid the coronavirus outbreak, and has not finished filming season 5, but the May 3 premiere date is still on.
Created by executive producers/showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien, along with Andrew Ross Sorkin, in season five, Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (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.
David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn also star. Julianna Margulies, Corey Stoll and Suits alum Rick Hoffman recur in season 5.
