Billions Season 5 started airing its new episodes in May 2020. However, we were only seven episodes into the new season when COVID-19 happened and stopped all the projects. As speculated earlier, the Billions Season 5 has twelve episodes in total. So, eager fans of the show are worried and eager to know if we would get the remaining episodes of Billions Season 5 or not? What is the future of the show?
The finance drama that first aired on Showtime in 2016 has been a big hit among the fans. Now we are all waiting to know the fate of the remaining episodes of the show. Here is everything to know about it-
Will We Get More Episode of Billions Season 5?
Thankfully, the short answer to this question is yes. Back in May 2020, the co-creator of the show Brian Koppelman took onto Twitter to reveal that they were planning to shoot the remaining episodes of Billions Season 5 when everything was okay. The episodes were written and ready to be shot.
Now, we are in 2021, and it looks like the team has started working on the production. Back in March 2021, actor Kelly AuCoin who plays the character of “Dollar” Bill, posted a photo of his character’s namesake currency. It seemed to be taped to the monitor with the caption, which confirmed that the team is back shooting. So, we might get the remaining episode of the show sooner than later, perhaps.
Janeane Garofalo Joins The Cast!
Viewers can expect to see Axe, Chuck, Wendy Rhoades, Taylor Mason, Kate Sacker, and Mike “Wags” Wagner when the show comes back. Along with the regulars on the show, viewers will get to see a new face. As per Deadline, actress Janeane Garofalo will join the cast of Billions season 5 to play the character of Winslow. Winslow is the hip owner of a legal cannabis corporation.
Billions Season 5: What Has Happened So Far?
Until now, the episodes that have aired have given all the viewers a lot of conflict and drama indeed. Chuck and his legal engagements with Axe, along with all his business pursuits, have been able to provide viewers with a lot. By the end of the seven episodes, Axe was quite pissed off. That was because of the struggle he had to face to launch his own bank. He was also preparing for a big fight with Mike Prince.
Prince was able to make a tentative deal with Taylor and Wendy’s impact fund. Chuck, on the other hand, had started teaching at Yale Law. This was a welcome break for him from his father, Chuck Sr. He was also pursuing his relationship with the sociology professor Julianna Margulies.
GameStop Storyline Coming Up
The creators of the show have been pretty tight-lipped about what would happen next in Billions Season 5. However, given the current economic status of the world, eager fans of the show have been quick to speculate what could happen. Many fans of the show started speculating and questioning if GameStop would become a part of the upcoming episodes of the show?
Early on in 2021, the stock market went haywire. A number of viewers of the show noticed the battle between hedge funds and investors on Reddit about the fate of GameStop, the struggling video game retailer. So, viewers have been quick to question if we would get to see that on the show. It looks like the creator Brian Koppelman has taken notice of it as he took onto Twitter to acknowledge that they think that this GameStop story feels like Billions. So, whether they would include it or not in the upcoming season is yet to be seen.
When Will The Billion Season 5 Release?
As per the latest spoilers, the team plans to release The Billions Season 5 sometime in the second half of 2021. Since they have already started working on the production of the remaining five episodes, we can expect that the team will be able to do so. Not just that, Showtime has also renewed the show for the sixth season. So, it is possible that we might get to see the remaining episodes of Billions Season 5 and new episodes of season 6 back to back. We will have to wait to know what really happens.
