Studios and Paramount Media Networks. “This latest season is full of incredible, complex dialogue and character dynamics that fans have come to love, and we’re excited to partner with them to turn this hit series into a global franchise.”

Billions also stars David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Jeffrey DeMunn, Dola Rashad, Sakina Jaffrey, Daniel Breaker and Toney Goins.
Since its premiere in 2016, Billions have been one of Showtime’s signature shows, and as previously announced, the network plans to expand the series with more spin-offs in development. All of these will be executive produced by Billions showrunners Brian Koppelman, David Levien and Paul Schiff.
Dan Soder, who played the role of stock trader Mafee since season 1, accidentally revealed that Billions will conclude with season 7 during an appearance on NBC Sports Chicago Football Night in Chicago in March.
“Season 7, the final season of Billions, is on the way,” Soder said, adding, “Shouldn’t I say that? I don’t know if I should say that.”
“It doesn’t matter. You just said it,” host Mike Berman joked, leaving Soder to respond, “It’s the last season.”
