Not since the days of Dallas has a show like Billions made the feuding wealthy seem so … well, rich. Showtime certainly thinks so, confirming a Season 3 renewal just three episodes into the show’s second season.
For someone just now having his moment, Dan Stevens has already accumulated a pretty diverse group of fans. Art house audiences already knew and loved his work thanks to a breakout role in Downton Abbey. Meanwhile, the genre crowd already declared his 2014 film The Guest as one of the best John Carpenter movies to not actually be made by John Carpenter. And now, with Legion, Colossal, and Beauty and the Beast all set to hit our screens in the next few months, Stevens is on an upward trajectory that few actors can match.
It’s been at least eight seconds since we’ve seen billionaires and the government at odds on TV, so let’s give Showtime a turn! Yes, ahead of next Sunday’s debut, the full Billions Season 2 premiere is online and free to stream without a Showtime account.
Certainly what the world needs now is more Billions, literal or figurative, and Showtime is only happy to oblige. Watch the Axelrods and Rhodes battle it out for all the money in New York with the first Season 2 trailer. That’s how the stock market works, right?
We’ve spent most of 2016 watching one or more billionaires battling it out, so what’s a few fictional ones in 2017? At least Showtime will keep it entertaining, with a first look at Billions Season 2, and a few new guest stars this side of Weeds.
We’ve gone at least several hours without a high-profile Netflix original series release, and have our next fix lined up as early as September 22. In the meantime, sneak a dirty little peak at Joe Swanberg’s new star-studded comedy on love and sex, as Netflix makes things Easy next week.
Just when you thought you had a handle on Netflix’s upcoming series, in swoops Joe Swanberg with a star-studded anthology series about modern sex and love. See Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman and so, so many more in the first teaser and photos from Netflix’s Easy September premiere!
It’d take quite a flop for hotshot premium cable dramas not to earn a Season 2 pickup these days, and Showtime’s Billions isn’t exactly hurting for cash. Following a major debut for the network, the high-stakes financial drama has been confirmed for a second season to air in 2017.
The 2016 TV season has officially begun, and Showtime is already getting a jump on the other networks with Shameless and new financial drama Billions. The full premieres for both have been made available on multiple platforms, if you’re into that whole free premium TV thing.
The well seems to have run pretty dry for new TV in 2015, so Showtime will step in to give its 2016 lineup an early jump. Not only will Shameless fans be able to catch the Season 6 premiere as early as New Years Day, and without a Showtime subscription at that, but so too will the network release high-powered finance drama Billions ahead of schedule.
