Led by Hollywood A-listers Damien Lewis and Paul Giamatti, Billions was first released in 2016 and quickly established itself as one of the most popular shows on TV. Now, with a fifth series set to drop, there's never been a better time to dive head-first into the murky world of Axe Capital. Read on as we explain how to watch Billions season 5 online for free – stream every episode from anywhere in the world with the help of our guide.
Billions season 5 is comprised of 12 hour-long episodes, the first seven of which will air on consecutive weekends on Showtime in the US starting May 3. Thereafter, the show will go a Covid-19 enforced hiatus, with the remaining five episodes set to air later in the year.
Once again, the magnetic Lewis takes center stage as Bobby 'Axe' Axlerod, the talented but ruthless head honcho of Axe Capital. Keeping him on his toes is Giamatti's Chuck Rhoades, who begins the show as US Attorney for the Southern District of New York and is hellbent on proving that Axe's hedge fund success isn't solely down to good judgement.
The supporting cast is every bit as impressive, featuring the likes of Maggie Siff (Mad Men, Sons Of Anarchy), Malin Akerman (Watchmen) and Toby Leonard Moore (Daredevil, John Wick).
