Showtime has announced that Emmy winner Damian Lewis will officially be returning to Billions after exiting the hit drama series in 2021. Lewis will reprise his role as billionaire Bobby Axelrod during the second half of the upcoming seventh season, where he’s set for a recurring appearance in six episodes. Production on Billions Season 7 is currently underway in New York.
His return comes after it was recently confirmed that Showtime is currently developing multiple spin-offs based on Billions for the upcoming rebranding of the premium network to Paramount + with Showtime. Series creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien are developing four potential spin-offs: Millions about rising financiers; Trillions about the ultra-rich; and two other untitled shows which will take place in Miami and London, respectively.
“In season seven, alliances are turned on their heads,” reads the logline. “Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.”
Billions currently stars Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll, Maggie Siff, Asia Kate Dillon, David Costabile, Toby Leonard Moore, Condola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Kelly AuCoin, and Daniel Breaker.
Billions is created and executive produced by showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien. The series was also created by Andrew Ross Sorkin. You can stream previous seasons on Showtime’s platforms.
