Billions premiered on Showtime on January 17, 2016, exactly five years ago TODAY.

Happy Birthday!

Now that the vaccination against Covid-19 is underway across the US as well as across the world, we know that there is a light at the end of this long and dark tunnel! And, with that light, comes the hope that they will resume filming Billions Season 5 as soon as it is safe to work in New York.  Brian Koppelman, the Billions co-creator and show runner, confirmed this on Twitter.

Throwback Thursday to Catching Up With Bobby Axelrod at His Favorite Pizzeria

Hope everyone is doing well in these surreal times we are living in. As I am longing for the good old days that I walked the streets of New York freely (which I hope to do again sooner than later now that we have a light at the end of the tunnel), I would love to take you back to exactly two years ago, a cold evening in December 2018, when I caught up with Damian Lewis at Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria. ENJOY!

When I saw this tweet, I wanted to scream on top of my lungs “it is going to happen!” but of course I restrained myself 🙂 Now that everyone has seen Season 4 Episode 7, I can spill the beans! Join me!

This blog has had an interesting relationship with Billions. I launched the blog only two weeks before they started shooting the pilot in New York and I have been very lucky to catch up with Damian on the set once every season since. I do not know how many times you need to do a thing for it to become a tradition, but catching up with Damian on Billions set once a year certainly feels like a tradition now.

And when I saw Billions signs on Park Avenue on a Saturday evening in December, I thought I could continue the tradition. The signs hint that they might shoot at Eleven Madison Park where I could easily imagine Axe eat with other billionaires, and was happy that I could continue the tradition.

What Makes The Billions Cast Such A Family? The Fun They Have Together *UPDATED*

 

Back in 2013, after he had appeared in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, I interviewed David Costabile for our high school alumni magazine (He and I were a year apart in high school and both part of the same theater program.) As part of the interview, he said this regarding his high school theater days: Continue reading “What Makes The Billions Cast Such A Family? The Fun They Have Together *UPDATED*”

Billions Season 5: Expectations, Things We’d Like To See (or not!) and a Fantasy or Two – Revisited!

Hello from the Trader’s Desk!

For the past 4 seasons, as we eagerly awaited the upcoming season of our favorite show “Billions“, we here at Fan Fun shared some of our predictions and thoughts about the new season.

We also decided to tweak our predictions for the remainder of  Season 5.

So as we look into the Billions Crystal Ball, let’s see how we did so far!
