Billions Renewed for Season 2

Showtime is bullish about Billions.

The network announced Tuesday that the Damian Lewis-Paul Giamatti drama about the showdown between a hedge-fund king and an ambitious U.S. attorney has been renewed for Season 2.

Billions premiered earlier this month to just under a million viewers and a 0.2 demo rating. In its second outing, it ticked up to a 0.3 rating. The pilot episode, which was available on demand and online starting Jan. 1, had the best-ever debut ratings for a Showtime series, according to the network, with its pilot being viewed by 6.5 million viewers across all platforms.
