Showtime has greenlit some more green: “Billions” will be returning for a third season


The pickup comes three episodes into the show’s second season. The drama starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis had its best numbers of those three episodes on Sunday.

“‘Billions’ continues to be a show on the rise, growing not only in audience, but in critical buzz and cultural relevance,” Showtime president and CEO David Nevins says in a statement. “It offers a unique mix of pure entertainment with sly commentary on our current have/have-not economy. Season 2 is off to a tremendous start and has only whetted our audience’s appetite for what will come in Season 3.”

Through its first three outings this season “Billions” is averaging a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 705,000 viewers (including one opposite the Oscars). Sunday’s 0.3 and 851,000 viewers were a season high. With a week of DVR and on-demand catchup the first two episodes averaged a 0.5 and 1.54 million viewers.

There’s no word yet on a date for the third season, though early 2018 seems like a safe bet.
