Billions Season 5, after a hefty halt, is finally returning. Well, it’s already been a year since Billions was cut short in the wake of COVID-pandemic, hanging fans in the middle of the season. However, the never-ending drama and war will continue in the second half as well, where Axe would use every possible resource to show his power in this business world. Further, Axe’s new foe Corey Stoll (Mike Prince), has recently teased how things will unfold in the final half.
Billions Season 5: What To Expect?

However, Axe would never find anything to plot against him. But Axe fires back that a man only looks right into a guy’s eyes when he’s bluffing.
June’s season finale ended with Chuck Rhoades finding a potential new weapon that he can use against Axe.
