Julianna Margulies has only recently joined Billions, but her character already has some strong feelings about the savage goings-on.
“I don’t like this game,” Margulies’ character says in the official Season 5 trailer, which Showtime released Thursday. “It’s not a game,” Chuck (Paul Giamatti) quickly, seriously corrects her.

As previously reported, the Good Wife alum will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author; she will appear in several episodes. Another new addition, The Strain‘s Corey Stoll, also can be seen in the new footage. He’ll have a season-long arc as Michael Prince, whom the official season synopsis describes as a “social impact pioneer” who poses a real threat to Damian Lewis’ Bobby.
The upcoming season — which will get underway on Sunday, May 3, at 9/8c — will toss gasoline on the fiery feud between Bobby and Chuck. Meanwhile, Chuck will take on a “formidable” district attorney (played by Nip/Tuck‘s Roma Maffia), Wendy will make “surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe,” and Taylor will return to Axe Capital.
