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.

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.
Just before Comic-Con 2015, Showtime’s Damian Lewis-Paul Giamatti financial drama Billions opened up the books for its first trailer, and with the network on the march at TCA, we know have a full premiere with a brand-new trailer. Billions will debut alongside Shameless Season 6 in 2016, but when?
