Showtime are looking to invest in their hit drama Billions with an early renewal for season 3.

Billions follows the conflict between the perennial clashing of a U.S. Attorney (Giamatti) and a hedge fund king (Lewis) on a quest for personal and professional domination.

The decision comes only 3 weeks into Season 2 with the current run averaging 4.4 million views an episode. David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks had this to say:

“It offers a unique mix of pure entertainment with sly commentary on our current have/have-not economy. Season two is off to a tremendous start, and has only whetted our audience’s appetite for what will come in season three.”

Billions stars Damian Lewis, as well as Paul Giamatti, Maggie Siff and Malin Akerman.
