For those who were patiently awaiting what scheme Chuck and Axe have up their sleeves now that they are on the same team, the wait is almost over. Showtime has announced that the fourth season of the hit drama series Billions will premiere on Sunday, March 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Oscar nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis.
Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s creators of the hit series is now Showtime’s second most-watched, after Homeland (which also starred 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.”
Although most of the cast including Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon, and Jeffrey DeMunn will be returning to show, there will be some differences this upcoming season. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Malin Akerman, who plays Lara Axelrod, will be scaling down her appearances in Season 4 and beyond. It has been reported that Akerman has been cast as the lead on NBC’s new, Rashomon-inspired drama, Prism. Because of her new role, Akerman character will see less and less screen time.
In an unlikely partnership, this season, former adversaries Bobby Axelrod) and Chuck Rhoades are joining forces to eliminate all their rivals, which include Asia Kate Dillon and Toby Leonard Moore as well as guest stars Clancy Brown and John Malkovich.
