After seven seasons, Showtime’s widely-watched gem “Billions” will be returning this week for its final season.

Created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin, the financial drama first premiered in 2016 and follows the cat-and-mouse games between a hedge fund manager (Damian Lewis) and the United States Attorney (Paul Giamatti).

The first season was loosely inspired by Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and his prosecution of S.A.C. Capital Advisors’ Steven A. Cohen. But as the show has continued, it’s morphed away from its real-life inspiration to become something else entirely.

When does “Billions” Season 7 premiere?

The big casting announcement for this final go-round is Damian Lewis. After leaving at the end of Season 5 due to personal reasons, Lewis is returning in a recurring role this season.

Series stars Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll and Maggie Siff are set to return. Likewise, David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Condola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sakina Jaffrey and Daniel Breaker are all in this last installment.

Will there be a “Billions” Season 8? Is this the last season of “Billions”?

The bad news for financial drama fans is that “Billions” is set to end after Season 7. The good news is that series co-creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien aren’t through finished examining the world of the wealthy. Earlier this year, it was announced that there would be two more Showtime series from the duo, tentatively titled “Millions” and “Trillions.”
