Why Damian Lewis left the show Billions?

According to EW, After season five, Lewis resigned from his role as Billions’ co-star. Lewis will show up in six of the 12 episodes of the upcoming season. Lewis’ departure was justified by the character’s emigration due to legal issues. After then, co-star Corey Stoll was promoted to series regular, and his character ended up running Axe’s business.

Lewis once said he quit the show when his initial five-season deal expired because he was getting a little tired of the part. “It’s challenging to continue mining, creatively… Lewis told The New York Times, “We know who he is. “I just always assumed that [five] would be enough.” He continued that his choice was not influenced by the passing of his wife, the actress Helen McCrory, in 2021, although he did desire to spend more time at home in London after “we had a sadness in our family.”

Showtime recently declared its intention to make significant investments in the future of the Billions brand by creating up to four series with ties to it from executive producers Brian Koppelman and David Levien; potential plots for these series include Millions and Trillions. The financial drama is currently the longest-running scripted original series on Showtime.

Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll, Maggie Siff, David Costabile, Asia Kate Dillon, Dola Rashad, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sakina Jaffrey, Daniel Breaker, and Toney Goins are among the other actors who appear in Billions.
