Showtime Updates Schedules for Black Monday, Billions & More
Black Monday will air through the sixth episode of its second season on Sunday, April 12, then will return with the final four episodes of the season later this year.
As previously announced, Billions will premiere its fifth season on Sunday, May 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The first seven episodes of the season will debut starting in May, with the remainder to also air later this year.
The season premiere of The Chi will move up to Sunday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The entire third season will air without interruption.
Also, the entire season of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is currently scheduled to air beginning with its season premiere on Sunday, April 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The network noted that in the cases of both Billions and Black Monday, the pause in new episodes will come at a natural point in the story arcs of their respective seasons.
Produced by star Don Cheadle, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg, the second season of the comedy Black Monday follows after the events of the first season’s disruptions resulted in the horrific stock market crash of 1987, and two people dead. Now, Mo (Cheadle) and Keith (Paul Scheer) are on the run but hungry for more power, more acclaim, and more money. But Dawn (Regina Hall) and Blair (Andrew Rannells) are the new dogs on top. What will happen when their paths collide once more?
Created by David Caspe and Jordan Cahan, the show takes viewers back to October 18, 1987 — aka Black Monday, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. The series tells the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system and the glass ceiling.
