Damian Lewis Leaves 'Billions' After 5 Seasons on Showtime

Damian Lewis Leaves 'Billions' After 5 Seasons on Showtime

Damian Lewis has officially exited his hit TV show Billions.

The final episodes of season 5 began airing in early September. Here’s a synopsis for the fifth season: In the second half of season five, the presence of powerful billionaire Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) sends ripples through Axe Capital and gives Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) a potential new weapon in his fight against Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). Alliances form, get ripped apart and form anew, and everyone from Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon) to Wendy (Maggie Siff) gets roped into the conflict, which comes very close to destroying all they hold dear.

After his exit was made official on last night’s episode, Damian took to Twitter.

“Thank you @SHO_Billions thank you @briankoppelman @DavidLevien. A pleasure and a privilege to play Axe for 5 seasons with some of the smartest, funniest most talented cast and crew I’ve worked with. I’ll miss the Billions family. Yep, some jobs are more than just a job…. Love,” Damian wrote.

Earlier this year, Damian and his family suffered a major personal tragedy.
