It’s a brave new world for the 2017 Emmy awards with Game of Thrones and others sitting this year out. The big announcement is finally here, as presented by Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Criminal Minds veteran Shemar Moore, so let’s find out what we’re all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Asia Kate Dillon has made TV history not just once, but twice this year. The star, known as one of the neo-Nazi inmates from Orange Is the New Black, became the first non-binary performer to play a non-binary character in a recurring TV role. And today Dillon sparked a massively progressive conversation around the Emmys.
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.
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.
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.
