The show is rated at 8.4 on IMDB. As you can guess, the show is very highly rated, and if you want something to watch, then I would recommend watching Billions. It is an amazing show, and I am looking forward to watching the new season. There will be plenty more drama, that’s for sure.
In the season premiere, we will see Bobby Axelrod achieving another big milestone, and we would be able to see him climb the steps of success. Also, we will see that Chuck will be having issues for getting bearing. Moreover, we will also see that the pressure is high at Ace Cap as Taylor Mason is back. This will be followed by episode 2 with Axe chasing at Mike Prince’s conference, and Chuck is fighting his inner demons to try and choose new bright paths. Along with this, we will see Wendy taking over as the lead of Axe Cap.
