The biggies

Billions (Showtime, Sunday, 8 p.m.)

Billions Season 7 Official Trailer | The Final Season | SHOWTIME

Billions is bringing its most valuable asset back for its sendoff. Yes, Damian Lewis returns to Showtime’s finance drama for its seventh and final season. The actor left the show after season five, which meant attorney Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giamatti) had to find a new enemy. Expect the two to go toe-to-toe one last time. Maggie Siff, David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon, Corey Stoll, and Jeffrey DeMunn co-star.


Solar Opposites (Hulu, Monday, 12:01 a.m.)

The show has already been greenlit for a Valentine’s Day special and a fifth season.


Hidden gems

Claudio O’Doherty, Scott MacArthur, and Tim Heidecker round out the ensemble.
