Since its 2021 launch, Paramount Plus has built a solid roster of original series, shows and movies across all genres.

We're talking dramatic series, reality series, comedies, thrillers and documentaries. There's also a resurgence of old-school music series from the world of MTV, VH1 and BET. For many, it's enough to justify the Paramount Plus price or at the very least give the streaming service a go with the Paramount Plus free trial.

And 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.

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 Plus right now and in the coming months ahead.
