Part 2 of Billions season 5 will debut in 2021, continuing the power struggle between New York’s Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damien Lewis).
The coronavirus pandemic halted production on numerous episodes shortly after the May 2020 debut. When Billions reported returning to production in April 2020, no official broadcast date was given until many months into 2021.
Hedged fund billionaire and his adversary at the District Attorneys Office are the focus of this TV series. Bobby and Chuck’s wife, Wendy Rhoades (Wendy Siff), gets caught in the thick of the conflict.
Wendy controls Bobby’s irregular judgments at Axe Capital and pushes the traders to their top performance. Despite their professional rivalry, she manages Chuck’s objectives at home.
Many tasty plots were in the works when season 5 was canceled. Chuck utilized his Attorney General authority to sabotage Bobby’s bank charter just as he was basking in the glory of the accomplishment.
Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), a protégé of Wendy and Axe, pushed their joint business into uncharted territory. Road dog “Wags” (David Costabile) turned his love attention to a younger lady to attempt again at fatherhood. At the same time, Chuck pondered how to assist his ailing father in receiving a kidney transplant.
It is expected that the remaining episodes of season 5 and the recently announced season 6 would fix all of these issues. So far, this is all we have to go on.
Billions Season 6 Release Date
After the fifth season began on January 23, 2022, it was renewed for a sixth season in October 2020.
Damian Lewis, who portrayed Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, will not appear in the sixth season. Lewis decided not to extend his contract with the program after the first five seasons because he wanted to be closer to his family in the UK.
Billions Season 6 Plot
In the first episode, a furious crowd of people headed by Chuck confronts another gang that possesses cannons, dubbed “Cannonade.” Afterward, the story jumps back a week.
Cannon fire interrupts Chuck’s effort to find peace by pretending to be a farmer in a hamlet far away from New York. He insists that he’s not on a sabbatical to everyone he meets. Still, he’s the AG, operating out of his farm office.
When Taylor is in New York, Wendy (Maggie Siff) makes coffee at a café and watches an engagement video. As Wags is suffering a heart attack, Scooter and Michael realize that he has to be taken to the hospital, and phone the emergency services.
The Nimbus rings that Michael and Scooter had previously given out to the staff are now serving as a means for Wags to keep tabs on his coworkers.
Axe’s firm has been renamed Michael Prince Capital, but Michael still has trouble winning over his workers. Melville Revere, Chuck’s billionaire cannon-firing neighbor, begins a feud with him (Michael McKean).
Revere’s cannon booms have become a nuisance to the other inhabitants of the hamlet. Because Revere is so powerful and affluent, they cannot do anything.
Billions Season 6 Ending
Michael’s new workers are scared of him as he takes over Ax’s firm. Taylor and Wendy are enraged that they are compelled to work for him.
Wags complicate the matter much further. Pay him $80 million if you dismiss him, Michael. After being fired from his firm, Axe’s vengeance on Michael may be his last. As it turns out, Wags acknowledges that he has no plans to quit the organization since he enjoys his employment so much.
Michael’s coworkers believe he lacks the ruthlessness and decisiveness necessary to lead a hedge fund. Investors are picking up on their skepticism.
As one of Michael’s key investors, Revere flies to Chuck’s property to persuade him to end the conflict. Because Chuck is still enraged by Michael’s betrayal, this tactic fails.
Michael resolves to follow Wendy’s advice to demonstrate how different he is from Axe to his staff. He announces that all investors who put filthy funds in Michael Prince Capital will be fired from the firm at a meeting with staff and investors. As he explains in his speech, this list will only include investors who have made their money correctly.
