Critic Reviews for Billions: Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

Still I'll watch, mesmerized by the question of how far this show will go, and how overcooked the acting will be, and how silly the sexual subplots will get. How bad will it be this season? I can't wait to find out.

It's all about forward momentum, keeping you leaning forward from one scene into the next to see how it all adds up. And it works.

The Showtime drama hasn't reinvented the wheel in its second chapter, but there's something different about the tale this year. It's more fun. It's more focused. It's just ... better.

August 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Fast-paced, fabulously shot and a showcase for some impressive acting, judging by this opening episode, the second season of Billions has plenty to intrigue and enthrall.

June 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The show doesn't seem any less tasteless or moronic than the characters it idolises

March 20, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a sense that Billions is more interested in having fun with its premise than clawing its way toward prestige status.

Audience Reviews for Billions: Season 2

The stakes are raised and the drama gets more intense in Season 2 of Billions. When US Attorney Chuck Rhoades gets investigated for his recent conduct in the Axelrod case he makes a Hail Mary play to keep his job, meanwhile hedge fund billionaire Bobby Axelrod takes on an unlikely protégé and makes a risky investment in the proposed site for a new casino. Both Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis give extraordinary performance; especially Giamatti, whose role is much more demanding and complex this season. And while it takes a while for the season to get some momentum, once it gets going it doesn’t let up. Additionally, the writers do a good job at explaining the financial jargon and money making schemes without it coming off as exposition dumps or grinding things to a halt. They also address some interesting sociopolitical and moral issues. Incredibly compelling, Season 2 of Billions is even better than the first.
