Multiple new iterations of the hit drama are on the way.
February 7, 2023
Showtime has unveiled plans to expand their hit drama Billions into multiple offshoots. The original series premiered in 2016 and is six seasons into its run, with a seventh on the way later this year.
A total of four new shows are in development, including 'Billions: London,' which will follow players in the world of UK finance, and 'Billions: Miami,' which will be set in the world of private aviation, where the clientele believe the rules of society and government don't apply to them, amidst the wealth, nightlife, contraband and the cryptocurrency that pulses through the Florida city.
Also in the works is a new show called 'Millions,' that will follow diverse, 30-something, financial mogul wannabes trying to make it in Manhattan, as well as 'Trillions,' which will be based on fictional stories of the richest people in the world - titans of industry living all over the country but coming into contact and conflict with one another.

I loved seasons 1 thru 5. 6 was okay. Season 7 has Axe coming back for 1/2 a season. I do not need 4 or 5 spinoffs. Focus on the main show and forget the rest.

@ Pat. Well Teen Wolf the Movie is streaming on Paramount+ and that dropped the F bombs and showed some Butts so.....That was nothing you saw on the TV show on MTV.

For a second I thought it was April 1st already.
Time to wrap up Billions, I love it but there is only so much you can do to continue a show without ruining it.
As for the spinoffs or whatever they be, not too interested but we'll see how it goes.

Showtime is merging with paramount plus and ceasing to exist. I wonder how adult shows will work on that thing?

Starz did something similar with the series Power. For the most part the spin-off shows have been decent so it will be interesting to see how the spin-offs of Billions turn out.

Billions works, and it works very well, because (1) its one of a kind, and (2) the lead characters are very interesting and it their all to the role. The unique philosophy, trivia and pop-culture laden dialogue only serves to aid in the uniqueness and richness of the characters and their world.
If the Showtime networks try to milk this "franchise", they will just end up diluting interest in it. Oh look, its Billions but set in Miami, and London, and even more rich folks, and a little less rich folks...yay!!...No...

There will also be a fifth iteration, called, "Billions and Billions" centered around a famous astronomer who saves the world from multiple secret alien invasions in his ship of the imagination.

I enjoy Billions. That being said, Paramount which owns Showtime wants to milk Billions and Dexter to death. Why make something new when we can use new cities and casts to remake the same stuff over and over again.

Hopefully there will be 'Hundreds'. Much more relatable.
