After five seasons on ‘Billions,’ Damian Lewis is leaving the show.

After five seasons on Showtime’s high-finance drama Billions, British actor Damian Lewis has left the show.

“Thank you, @SHO Billions,” says the user. @briankoppelman @DavidLevien, thank you. It was an honor and a pleasure to play Axe for five seasons with some of the brightest, funniest, and most talented cast and crew I’ve ever worked with. The Billions family will be missed. Yes, some jobs are more than just employment…. Love,” Lewis wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Helen McCory, who played Helen in Peaky Blinders and Harry Potter, died of cancer in April. She was 52 years old at the time. They have two children together.

Billions Season 6 will premiere in January, according to Showtime.

The cable television network tweeted, “Chuck Rhoades and Mike Prince can’t wait to dig their teeth into each other, and we won’t keep you waiting long either.”

A minute-long trailer included in the tweet showed U.S. Attorney General Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) vowing to continue his assault on the “criminally wealthy.”

Mike Prince is played by Corey Stoll, who previously appeared in The Many Saints of Newark. In Season 5, he was a recurring character, but in Season 6, he has been promoted to a full-time cast member.

Chuck Rhoades and Mike Prince are salivating at the prospect of sinking their teeth into one other, and we won’t keep you waiting long: @SHO Billions will be back in January 2022. October 4, 2021 — SHOWTIME (@Showtime)
