Billions Season 5 Part 2 Release Date – Has It Arrived?
Let me clear you that the fifth edition was decided to break into two halves as the production was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After the premiere of the 7th episode on the channel, the drama was pressurized to face delay. As the production of the drama takes place in New York, it created big trouble for the show because the area was badly hit by Coronavirus. Since the health of each and every member associated with the series was of utmost importance, there wasn’t any option available rather than to stop the filming.
During the initial days of lockdown, it was seeming that the filming of season 5 would return to its track shortly ensuring that the unreleased episodes would be aired by the last of 2020. Later, on 30th December 2020, the official Twitter handle of the series divulged that the tale “isn’t over yet,”. However, it didn’t disclose any details about the recommencement of production of the iteration. While in another chat on Twitter, Brian Koppelman responded to a show lover mentioning that the crew would restart the production of the remaining episodes in 2021 and also kick off the production of season 6.

Billions Season 5 Part 2 Plot – What Can Happen In The Remaining Episodes?
The 7th episode act as the half-series conclusion for the fifth iteration. In the last of the seventh episode, we witness that the conflict between Axe and Chuck has caught fire again.

Taylor comes back to Axe Capital and starts his work.
In Billions season 5 part 2, the story will be seen as going ahead. Chuck is already tired because of Axe, and regional lawyer Mary Ann Gramm isn’t creating things simpler for him, as he has pointed out crucial cases going away from his radar.
