Billions Season 5 is soon about to return with its Part 2. Bria Kopelman has created the show along with David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin. For the first time, this show came out on Showtime back on 18th January 2016. Till this point in time, the creators have successfully delivered five complete seasons for us. As the name suggests, the show’s sole focus is on the financial influence in America. This is why the filming generally takes place in large financial centers such as New York as well as Connecticut.
Since the time this show has started, we have seen the creators telling the story of Bobby Axelrod, who is the hedge fund manager. The camera follows him as he accumulates immense wealth as well as power in a world where finances are still very high. On the other hand, we have Chuck Rhoades, who is trying to burst the bubble of Axelrod and all of his master plans which frequently go to the illegal sides as per the laws of the United States. There are a variety of subsequent story arcs in the show, which are managed by the vast range of supporting cast members.
There is some plot in this show which has actually been inspired by the real-life happenings that have previously taken place. The main inspiration behind the series originated from the investigations taken by Preet Bharara. He was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. His career spanned from 2009 till 2017. Rhoades is based on him only.
