Quick! Someone tell Charlie Puth! Clearly, rococo writing and financial intrigue still hold some sway in this town, because Showtime is investing in Billions futures. Today, the network announced that the Wall Street drama will return for a fifth season. This news comes directly after an episode that gave us an Axe Capital v. Mason Capital charity boxing match between Mafee and Dollar Bill (my fan fiction could never!) and before the season finale, which airs June 9. That means more Giamatti, more Damian Lewis, more fleece, and more billion-dollar dialogue. Says 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.”
So get hype, because it’s on like Chaka Khan.
