Season two of Billions picked 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. Siff stars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck's estranged wife and the top performance coach in the hedge fund world. 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.

Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. Season two guest stars include Rob Morrow, Dan Soder, Kelly AuCoin, Mary-Louise Parker, Danny Strong, James Wolk, Christopher Denham, Glenn Fleshler, Asia Kate Dillon and Eric Bogosian.

Season three of Billions finds Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) in a world that has shifted on its axis. Both men are still determined to destroy the other, but must also battle for their own survival amid new forces and powerful enemies. Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) Chuck's wife and Axe's performance coach, is all in for both of them, an uneasy and dangerous position for her, and one that ultimately puts her to a decision that could alter the direction of her life irrevocably. Money, power, justice and revenge are all on the line for each of these characters as well as for the rest of the stellar cast, including Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon and Jeffrey DeMunn. Clancy Brown guest stars this season as Waylon "Jock" Jeffcoat, the new Attorney General, who has a compelling portfolio of accomplishments, a wicked intellect and a serious interest in both Chuck and Bobby Axe.
