‘Billions’ Season 5, June 21, 2020 Episode 8 Delayed. Not Airing For A While
Hey, “Billions” fans. We are back at you this Sunday with some very bad news. It turns out that the next, new episode 8 of Billions’ current season 5 will not be airing tonight and for many more Sunday nights to come.
According to a recent article from Newsweek.com, this terrible pandemic caused Billions to have to shut down production. So, they couldn’t finish filming the 5th season.
They were only able to get half of it shot. Right now, it’s currently not known when episode 8 will finally hit the airwaves because they have to be able to film again, and right now, they’re not sure when that will be.
Brian Koppelman, who is the showrunner for Billions hit up his official Twitter account last Sunday to let everyone know that episode 7 was the midseason finale. He also said they would get back to work on Billions’ 5th season when it’s safe again writing, “Tonight is the midseason finale of@SHO_Billions.
David Costabile, who plays Wags, directed and did terrific work. We all can’t wait to get back to work and finish the season when it’s safe. Hope you dig the show tonight. #Billions” You guys can view that tweet on Brian Koppelman’s official Twitter account by Clicking Here.
So, what is Showtime airing instead of Billions in the meantime? According to the TV guide listings, Showtime is airing the new season 3 of The Chi in the 8 pm central standard time slot.
Tonight’s episode is the premiere episode 1 titled,”Foe ‘Nem.” Showtime’s official description for it reads like this, “A wedding alters Kevin and Kiesha’s lives. Emmett juggles his business and his growing family. Ronnie struggles to find his way. Jake’s estranged brother Trig lands back in town on a mission.”
If that sounds like something you guys would like to check out, just flip on Showtime tonight at 8 pm central standard time and have at it.
If you don’t want to watch The Chi’s new season 3, you will definitely want to make other arrangements as quick as you can.
