Since its launch, Paramount Plus has proven itself to have a solid selection of original shows and movies across a wide variety of genres.

There are dramas, reality series, comedies, thrillers and documentaries available on the streaming service, including old-school music series from MTW and VH1. Plus, more are being added all the time.

None of this is even counting all the live sports on Paramount Plus, including regional NFL games, college football, European and Brazilian football and more. Not all countries get all that though.

This wide selection is, for many, enough to justify the Paramount Plus price, or at least the Paramount Plus free trial.

The list of new and great shows on Paramount Plus is long and it's going to keep on growing. (And don't forget about all the movies on Paramount Plus, too!) So let's just get into it. Here's the slate of shows you can expect to find on Paramount Plus right now and in the coming months ahead.
