Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis continue their cutthroat feud in the trailer for the upcoming second season of Showtime's Wall-Street drama "Billions."
Following the bitter legal clash between a crooked hedge fund billionaire (Lewis) and a career-driven U.S. Attorney (Giamatti), the Showtime series also stars Maggie Siff and Malin Akerman with Christopher Denham, Danny Strong, and Eric Bogosian joining the cast of the new season.
Created by screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Rounders, Ocean's Thirteen) along with TV financial reporter/author Andrew Ross Sorkin (Too Big to Fail), "Billions: Season 2" is scheduled to premiere Sunday, February 19.
Season 2 picks up immediately after the season one finale, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Lewis), scorching the earth in a costly war for personal domination. It's law versus money, with power, sex, and the soul of New York in the balance. Maggie Siff stars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck's estranged wife and the top performance coach in the hedge fund world. Malin Akerman plays Lara Axelrod, Axe's fiercely loyal and street-smart wife. Season two finds the characters vying for control in a changing world that presents an existential threat. For all of them, it's a choice between evolution and extinction.
