US drama Billions has been renewed by Showtime for a fifth season.
Set in the world of New York high finance, it stars Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti and Maggie Siff with John Malkovich in a recurring role. Co-created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, it has been averaging with 785,000 US viewers, down just slightly from its third season average of 875,000.
“Billions’ addictive examination of wealth and power is supremely entertaining, smart and surprising,” said Showtime Entertainment Co-President, Gary Levine. “We’re loving season four and can’t wait to buckle up for the wild ride that Brian and David and their brilliant cast have in store for us in season five.”
Billions screens in Australia on Stan with the Season 4 finale due on June 10.
