Julianna Magulies (“The Good Wife”) and Corey Stoll (“The Strain”) have joined the Season 5 cast of “Billions,” Showtime’s drama series starring Paul Giamatti and Damien Lewis.

Created by executive producers/showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien, along with EP Andrew Ross Sorkin, Season 4 of “Billions” saw former enemies Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti), and Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), the chief counselor to each, come together to form an uneasy but highly effective alliance, aimed at the eradication of all their rivals. They include Grigor Andolov (guest star John Malkovich), Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), Bryan Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (guest star Clancy Brown).

David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn also star.

Margulies will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author. Stoll joins in a season-long arc as Michael Prince, a business titan from a small town in Indiana.

Two-time Emmy winner Margulies was a regular on AMC’s “Dietland” and earlier starred for seven seasons on ABC’s “The Good Wife” and on NBC’s “ER,” winning an Emmy for each of the latter two series. She most recently toplined National Geographic’s ebola miniseries “The Hot Zone.”

Stoll starred in FX’s “The Strain” and earned a Golden Globe nomination for playing Congressman Peter Russo on Netflix’s “House of Cards.” His recent credits also include “The Deuce,” “American Dad!” and “Girls.” He next appears in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix drama “Ratched” and Hulu’s British drama “Baghdad Central.”
