In Season 2 the battle between Axe and Chuck is gaining momentum. It seems that this time the guys are ready for everything to get rid of each other. Apparently, Wendy is the only person who can stop the inevitable chaos. But she wants to distance herself from the confrontation. The strategy is the only clue to the victory. But both Bobby, as well as Charles, has his 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.

An overall rating 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 favorable.
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). In fact, this is a significant drop in the viewing audience. We hope that it will be recovered in the future.
