The “Axe” is back in trailer to final season of ‘Billions’


Showtime has released the trailer to the seventh and final season of its heralded drama Billions.

The snippet was introduced by stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, the latter of whom left the show after its fifth season.

In his place, co-star Corey Stoll‘s oily Mike Prince ascended to take the place of Lewis’ cutthroat hedge fund billionaire Bobby “Axe” Axelrod as the head of his company, Axe Capital.

But the trailer, released June 27, teases his return: While Prince is shown starting a run for the White House, the Axe is coming back into his own. “I’m back now, and I’m wide awake,” he sneers in the coming attraction.

Showtime teases, “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.”

Subscribers to the Paramount+ with Showtime package can watch the season debut on Friday, August 11. The season’s 12 episodes will stream weekly there, or you can watch the first episode on August 13 and subsequent episodes on Showtime’s linear network.
