In 2015, Showtime presented its viewers with a new series, Billions. The project proved so popular that it was repeatedly renewed. In January 2022, season 6 began, and the show’s creators have announced new episodes. This makes Billions one of Showtime’s longest-running projects. The release date for Season 7 of Billions will be in 2023. The release is expected to be in January. Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti play the lead roles in the project. Both actors have confirmed their involvement with the sequel.

What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The series is about two irreconcilable adversaries, Bobby Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades. The first is the head of the nation’s largest hedge fund. He rose during the financial crisis, and because of the events caused by the 9/11 attacks. Many people didn’t like it, including Rhoades, who works as a district attorney. Rhoades has a personal grudge against Axelrod as well, since Rhoades’ wife works in the financier’s organization and is an extremely valuable employee, Bobby tries his best to keep her, including making not-so-decent offers.
The prosecutor investigates the financier’s activities and comes to believe that he is actively using insider information. Bobby expects to make and win the biggest legal case, which will end the enemy and guarantee him a promotion. The confrontation will prove difficult and will continue in the seventh season, whose release date will be in January 2023.
As events unfold, the successes of both sides will change. Chuck will manage to send Bobby to jail, but the sentence will be short-lived and on a minor charge, but Chuck himself will later lose his position as he will have serious competition. The two men will have to work together to get out of the mess they’ve put each other in, but the temporary truce will culminate in a fierce new confrontation in the upcoming episodes. A Season 7 release date for the series Billions is expected in 2023.

The project has received positive reviews and critics note that it represents that rare case where both main characters are extremely unattractive because of their actions, but the viewer empathizes with them, as they embody the appearance of modern, purposeful people. The new series will be released in 2023, and it is rumored that producer and scriptwriter Brian Koppelman and David Levien are already busy developing the next seasons, but their release will be directly dependent on the ratings. Showtime officials believe that Billions will be released as long as the series is of interest to viewers.
