It’s finally official: In 2021 CBS All Access will morph into Paramount Plus.
There has been talk for more than a year about a re-branding of CBS All Access, and it seems that all of the pieces have finally fallen into place. It all began with a massive increase in content, and now it’s time for the new name.
Paramount Plus was unveiled as the new name on Tuesday. When the service relaunches under the new name, it will include over 30,000 hours of television programming from BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon. It will also add in a large number of Paramount films.
Original programming will also receive a boost, The Offer will be a 10-part series about the making of The Godfather. SpongeBob SquarePants will get its spin-off Kamp Koral. The Mara Brock Akil sitcom The Game will be revived and Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) will have a new spy drama called Lioness.
The Paramount Plus name has already been used in areas such as Latin America, but there will be a difference with this version. Internationally the service includes Showtime programming, but in the U.S. that will still be a separate service.
No specific date has been announced for the changeover.
