Showtime has announced that Emmy winner Damian Lewis will return as fan-favorite Bobby “Axe” Axelrod to season seven for six of the twelve episodes of the acclaimed drama series Billions, starring Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll and Maggie Siff.
Currently in production in New York City, Billions will return later this year.
Toney Goins, who plays Philip has been upped to series regular in season seven. Lewis recently broke the news on a segment of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which you can watch below.
In season seven, alliances are turned on their heads. Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.
In addition to Damian Lewis, Giamatti, Stoll, and Siff, Billions also stars David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Condola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sakina Jaffrey and Daniel Breaker.
Billions is created and executive produced by showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Rounders). Beth Schacter also serves as showrunner and executive producer.
The series was also created by Andrew Ross Sorkin. All previous seasons of Billions are available for subscribers on Showtime.
Showtime recently announced plans for additional shows based on Billions. All of the projects are executive produced by Billions series showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who have established their own acclaimed brand of propulsive storytelling and articulately incorrigible characters.
