Paramount+ Follows Other Streamers in Removing Several Original Series From Platform

Programs like Jordan Peele’s “The Twilight Zone” reboot are no longer available


Paramount+ has followed other streamers like HBO Max in removing some of its original programming off the platform, including the likes of Jordan Peele’s “The Twilight Zone” reboot and “The Real World: Homecoming New York.” The news comes two days after Paramount announced that Showtime would be undergoing a rebrand and merging with Paramount+’s premium service later this year.

Other titles no longer showing up on the platform include “Coyote,” “No Activity,” “Guilty Party” and “The Harper House.” “The Twilight Zone,” which was canceled after two seasons, was a project from the now-defunct CBS All Access (later rebranded to Paramount+). The removal of “Homecoming,” a spinoff to the reality series “The Real World” that aired for three decades on MTV, is more unclear given that the series had yet to receive a formal cancellation.

Reps for Paramount+ did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Upon the announcement of Paramount+ With Showtime, the service behind “Yellowjackets” also removed titles like the Jon Bernthal-starring “American Gigolo” and “Let the Right One In,” both of which it canceled after one season. Titles no longer available on that platform also include “American Rust,” “Kidding,” “On Becoming a God in Central Florida” and Super Pumped.” Showtime also axed “Three Women,” the upcoming drama series starring Shailene Woodley, despite having completed production.

The move is a concerning new trend within the TV streaming space, with creators and journalists alike admonishing services for disappearing content in favor of tax write-downs or money saved from avoiding residual payments. Last year, HBO Max made several headlines for removing pulling shows off its platform, including the queer drama “Genera+ion” (now on Tubi), HBO flagship series “Westworld” and Lionsgate’s “Love Life” and “Minx,” the latter of which has now found a new home on Starz.
