"Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies" on Paramount+

Following the lead of Max, Disney+ and Hulu, Paramount+ has announced it would cut a raft of shows and movies. Perhaps the most surprising of these was “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies,” which just had its finale on June 1. Within weeks of the season’s end, Paramount announced that the show was not only canceled but would be removed from Paramount+ entirely. 

The musical comedy, a prequel to the original “Grease” movie, premiered on April 6 and struggled to take off until its final weeks when it reached its highest levels of demand, according to Parrot Analytics‘ data, which takes into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other engagement.
