Do ‘Billions’ Have a Chance for a Season 3?
Though “Billions” have lost a half of the viewing audience during its second season premiere, the series has received the universal acclaim among critics and viewers on the other hand. We think that the second season of “Billions” has become even more tense and gripping. Of course, most of you likely wonder whether or not we expect a next season of “Billions” on Showtime? Actually, the cable network hasn’t yet announced its decision regarding the future of the drama series. However, we suggest you to sign up for our automatic notifications if you don’t want to miss the still possible premiere of a Season 3.
In Season 2 the battle between Axe and Chuck is gaining momentum. It seems that this time the guys are ready for everything in order to get rid of each other. Apparently, Wendy is the only person who is able to stop the forthcoming chaos. But she wants to distance herself from the confrontation. Strategy is the only clue to the victory. But both Bobby as well as Charles has his own sophisticated plan how to cope with the opponent. Emotions run high, given the fact that billions are at stake.
In general, the second season of “Billions” has kicked off more successfully compared to the previous season. The reception is more than positive. On Rotten Tomatoes, the second series of the drama has a score of 8.25/10 and a 100% approval rating among critics. In the meantime, the viewers have rated the second season at 5/5 providing a 100% approval rating. On Metacritic, “Billions” has a score of 67/100 and 6.6/10 among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of the drama series remains very high as well. According to IMDb, “Billions” has a score of 8.4/10 based on 24,000 user votes. Chiefly, the reaction of critics and viewers seem favourable.
But the viewing figures of the season’s premiere were low. The premiere of the second series of “Billions” has gained 0.753 million viewers (-48% compared to previous season premiere) with a 0.20 demo rating (-17%) among adults (18-49). Actually, this is a serious drop of the viewing audience. We hope that it will be recovered in the future.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 3)
“Billions” Season 2 was launched on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on Showtime. The season’s premiere drew over 0.75 million viewers, as well as has been praised by critics and the target audience. There have been no official news from Showtime regarding renewal or cancellation of the drama series.

However, we would prefer to wait for the official announcement by Showtime.
