For three seasons, viewers of “Billions” have watched the bitter battle unfold between Wall Street maverick Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and former U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) as these enemies pulled out all the stops to bring each other down by any means necessary.
The ground shifted at the end of the third season, however, and a new trailer for the upcoming fourth season indicates that Bobby and Chuck have formed an uneasy alliance to take down their mutual foes.
“When everyone is out for revenge, no one is safe,” declares the synopsis for the upcoming season. “This is never more true than in season four of ‘Billions’. Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti), former enemies, and Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), the chief counsellor to each, have come together to form an uneasy but highly effective alliance, aimed at the eradication of all their rivals, including Grigor Andolov (guest star John Malkovich), Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), Bryan Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (guest star Clancy Brown).”
As the synopsis adds, “Ambition and betrayal have long been at the heart of ‘Billions’, and this season all the characters find out exactly how high a price they’ll have to pay to satisfy those needs.”
The fourth season of “Billions” debuts on Monday, March 4.
