The second season of Showtime’s Wall Street drama Billions will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday February 21st at 9pm, it has been announced.
From Andrew Ross Sorkin, David Levien and Brian Koppelman, Billions is set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics & finance and follows two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis). Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star.
The show’s second season picks up immediately after the season one finale, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, scorching the earth in a costly war for personal domination. It’s law versus money, with power, sex, and the soul of New York in the balance. Season two finds the characters vying for control in a changing world that presents an existential threat. For all of them, it’s a choice between evolution and extinction.
