While we wondered how things would proceed in Billions Season 5, the network had amazed us by ordering Billions Season 6 before its fifth season wrapped up airing on the network. However, there’s still hope that the show would return to finish the fifth season in 2021. Thus, the fans have to wait too long to watch their favorite characters back in action. Billions Season 5 aired in May 2020. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it aired only seven episodes.
In which, Billions saw a conflict between the main character Charles “Chuck” Rhoades and Robert “Bobby” Axelrod. Chuck was challenged by a new dire district advocate Mary Ann Gramm (Roma Maffia), who tries to remove him from a big discussion. Further, the fifth season has seen Taylor Mason’s (Asia Kate Dillon) return to Axe Capital. Meanwhile, Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Stiff) found a new association that understands her relationship with Chuck and Axelrod. However, the fifth season left off without portraying a proper finale. But, we can expect it to return soon to narrate the leftover story.

Billions Season 6: What To Expect?
However, it looks like the show has somewhat changed from its central theme. It seems that the drama series is now moving in a completely different direction. Since both the leads have a new opponent and some formidable opponents who are ready to take everything from them, that shifted the entire focus on the rivalry storyline. Now, we can expect that the sixth season would focus more on the ambition story than the rivalry tale.
