DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, January 2018) SHOWTIME has announced that the third season of the hit drama series BILLIONS will premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Oscar(R) nominee and Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winner Paul Giamatti and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis, BILLIONS is the network's No. 2 drama series behind HOMELAND, averaging five million viewers weekly across platforms. The series grew throughout the second season on Sunday nights by more than 35 percent from premiere to finale. BILLIONS is available on SHOWTIME on-air, on demand and over the internet. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc., at the 2018 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. Season three of BILLIONS finds Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) in a world that has shifted on its axis. Both men are still determined to destroy the other, but must also battle for their own survival amid new forces and powerful enemies. Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) Chuck's wife and Axe's performance coach, is all in for both of them, an uneasy and dangerous position for her, and one that ultimately puts her to a decision that could alter the direction of her life irrevocably. Money, power, justice and revenge are all on the line for each of these characters as well as for the rest of the stellar cast, including Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon and Jeffrey DeMunn. Clancy Brown guest stars this season as Waylon "Jock" Jeffcoat, the new Attorney General, who has a compelling portfolio of accomplishments, a wicked intellect and a serious interest in both Chuck and Bobby Axe.
