Spoilers for Sunday’s season five finale of Billions.
Bobby Axelrod has finally escaped the grasp of Chuck Rhoades, but at what cost? All his dang money, is what cost! Shortly after the Billions season five finale, Deadline reported that Damian Lewis will not be coming back for season six. Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) owns all his companies, and Axe finally know what it feels like to lose. Series EP Brian Koppelman praised Lewis on Twitter after the finale, saying that working with the actor was an “incredible joy.” On behalf of himself and David Levine, Koppelman thanked Lewis “for the work, of course, and the fellowship, and for all you sacrificed to come do this with us.”
After the finale, Showtime also released the trailer for Billions season six, which will begin airing January 23. Deadline shared rumors that Lewis will cameo.
