Billions Season 7 May Be Its Final Season

Billions, one of our favorite shows, might be sadly coming to an end. We were excited to hear last month that Damien Lewis (Bobby Axelrod) would return to season 7 for a handful of episodes (season six wasn't the same without him). Now, Dan Soder (who plays Mafee) appeared on NBC Sports Chicago's Football Night in Chicago and let it slip that season 7 will be the last. Showtime has yet to comment if season 7 of Billions will truly be its last, and no release date has been announced yet for season 7.

Connor McDavid Becomes The First NHL Player In Over 25 Years To Earn 140 Points In A Season

If there were any doubts that Connor McDavid is an absolute superstar, he earned his 140th point this season with his assist against the Arizona Coyotes (Edmonton won the game 5-4). The last time a player hit 140 points in an NHL season was during the 1995-1996 season when both Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr achieved the feat. McDavid became the first Oilers player since the Great One, Wayne Gretzky, did it in the 1987-1988 season to reach that mark. He is also only the seventh player in NHL history to earn at least 60 goals and 80 assists in a single season.

Season two's first episode viewership was up by over 100% compared to the series premiere in 2021. Season three has already been ordered by Showtime.
