Season 4 has also featured guest stars such as Clancy Brown, John Malkovich, Samantha Mathis, Kevin Pollak, Jade Eshete, and Nina Arianda.

In Season 4, Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti), former enemies, and Wendy Rhoades (Siff), the chief counselor to each, have come together to form an uneasy but highly effective alliance, aimed at the eradication of all their rivals, including Grigor Andolov (Malkovich), Taylor Mason (Dillon), Bryan Connerty (Moore) and Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (Brown).

In its fourth season, “Billions” remains one of Showtime’s highest-rated and most-watched shows. According to Showtime, the series is averaging 4.2 million viewers per episode in multi-platform viewing.
