  1. According to multiple sources, Showtime has announced that season 2 of “Black Monday,” which is currently airing, and season 5 of “Billions” will be interrupted mid-flow, go on hiatus and come back once filming and production can be completed. Not shorter seasons, just interrupted seasons.

  2. Billions will be interesting as this new COVID19 GFC should be included in this new seasons in production story arc.
    Headaches all round for the Billions writers and showrunner, because Mr. Axelrod will have a lot more to think about than Chuck Rhoades.
