Billions Season 6 Release Date: When will it air?
Season five was released in May of this year, showing 7 of the allotted 12 episodes for the season. When season six will start airing is a guess for anyone. However, it’s hoped that once the production for season five commences, season six will also follow earnestly. Therefore possibly the May Airdate of season five is followed.
Season 6 of Billions premiered on Showtime on January 23. On Showtime, new episodes of Billions will broadcast on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Billions Season 6 Plot: What is going to happen?
Billions follow the struggle for supremacy between two powerful individuals, the ambitious billionaire Bob Axelrod and his antagonist, the attorney general Chuck Rhoades. Axe always tries to clinch great profits for his company and shareholders, Axe Capital, using diverse means including insider trading, bribery and sabotage. He definitely always end up butting heads with the US attorney hell-bent on imprisoning him. Last season we saw Chuck and Axe reawaken their rivalry. Between all this Axelrod is still also fighting to own a bank. Charles Rhoades, Sr. is dying. That’s not all; we were all surprised with Axe obsessively watching over Wendy, especially her relationship with her boyfriend.
