Created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, ‘Billions‘ is a drama series. In the first five seasons, the plot predominantly revolves around the conflict between New York District Attorney Charles “Chuck” Rhoades, Jr. and hedge fund billionaire Robert Axelrod AKA Bobby or Axe. However, following the departure of Damian Lewis (Axe), the show underwent a significant overhaul, introducing a new billionaire for Chuck to feud with, Michael Thomas Aquinius Prince.

Initially, Prince is projected as a new-age wealthy individual who sincerely wants to make the world a better place. But eventually, he emerges as someone whose ambition knows no bounds, and neither does his willingness to make the necessary sacrifices to realize the said ambition. Since its original premiere on January 17, 2016, ‘Billions’ has received mostly positive reviews. Both critics and fans have praised the show’s characterization, performances, fast-paced narrative, and rapid-fire dialogues. Season 6 of the show has recently finished airing. So, if you are wondering whether there will be a seventh round, we’ve got the scoop!

Billions Season 7 Release Date

‘Billions’ season 6 premiered on January 23, 2022, on Showtime and aired 12 episodes before concluding on April 10, 2022. The episodes have a runtime of 48-60 minutes.

As for season 7, we’ve got exciting news! In February 2022 – less than a month after the sixth season began airing – ‘Billions’ was greenlit for its seventh installment. The drama series is one of the most popular shows on Showtime and has a large, devoted fanbase. Although Lewis’ departure has caused some disappointment, most fans have seemingly come to accept it.

From 2016 to 2019, the first four seasons aired in the first quarter of the year. However, the team faced some issues during the production and screening of the fifth season due to the effects of the COVID-2019 pandemic. While having said that, things have apparently gone back to normal as the show resumed its usual release pattern with season 6. If things remain as smooth, viewers can expect ‘Billions’ season 7 to release sometime in Q1 2023.

Billions Season 7 Plot: What can it be About?

In the season 6 finale, Prince takes a $3.5 billion loss to avoid jail time. Instead, Chuck is sent to jail. Everyone at Michael Prince Capital finally begins to realize what kind of a man their new boss is, and it makes most of them uncomfortable. As the episode ends, Dave visits Chuck in prison and tells him that she will need his help to stop Prince from becoming the President of the United States.

In season 7, when Chuck gets out, Mike will realize he has virtually wasted $3.5 billion, and their conflict will resume. If Philip and Taylor do end up taking over MPC in the next season, they might try to establish themselves away from Prince’s enormous shadow. Wendy’s approach to her work might change now that she has been given refuge.
