A lot needs to be unfolded with Billions Season 7, but the question is, is it happening? Originally starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, Billions is an American drama series loosely based on real-life events of financial crimes. The series has produced six seasons from its storyline to date, the first premiered back in January 2016 on Showtime. It is one of those rare series where the secondary cast is involved in much of the important plot, similar to the lead characters.
The show follows the life of a ruthless yet sincere US attorney, Chuck Rhoades whose ego gets immensely hurt by a hedge fund kingpin, Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod. The duo rage a battle against each other in the competitive financial market. The show is also identified as the first American TV series with a non-binary character, Taylor Mason. A highly positive image amongst critics and a fan-favorite series, Billions Season 7 is highly anticipated and is expected to premiere globally by mid-2023. The article will help you in understanding this TV series better along with available details for Billions Season 7.
Decoding the Season 6 Finale ‘Cold Storage’
The sixth season of this series began airing this year on 23rd January with the first episode titled ‘The Deal’. 10th April 2022 marked the end of Billions Season 6. The fans witnessed a roller coaster of events in the show. The final episode ‘Cold Storage’ was one that needed to be decoded. If you miss a minute, you may not know the further plot as several unknowns are introduced throughout the series. Chuck’s successor, Dave Mahar calls in Chuck Rhoades and Mike Prince along with their attorneys, Ira Schirmer and Kate Sacker respectively for interrogation.
Prince ends up losing $3.5 billion but manages to stable his political career while Chuck is sprung from jail. Kate is Chuck’s Prime target in taking down Prince. He gets his hands on an old case that will sink her political career once it is revealed to the public. Hence, Kate is blackmailed. Prince has blind trust over Rian. His words, “there are people that things happen to and people who make things happen, and you need to land on which one you want to be.” was strange to us but he meant them.
Rian is thought to become the next Monica Lewinsky or Rielle Hunter. Until the end, we can see why Chuck called Prince “Greg Stillson”, the psychopathic presidential candidate in “The Dead Zone”. Prince pretensions are appearing weary to many several key players in the story. Wags realizes that Prince’s ideology is cynical to the level he can never think of.
