Another new streaming service? Well, sort of.
ViacomCBS is officially overhauling its CBS All Access streaming platform, which is home to a host of content from Nickelodeon, CBS, and more — including various Star Trek originals, such as Picard and Lower Decks.
All of the content from CBS All Access is set to stay on the newly minted “Paramount+” streaming service, which the company introduced this morning. Paramount+ is set to launch early next year, and the platform will feature sports, news, and entertainment content from across the ViacomCBS brands.
A new teaser video promises more than 30,000 episodes and movies from Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, CBS, Comedy Central, and more.

- Lioness, a spy drama based on a real-life CIA program
- A reimagining of the MTV classic Behind the Music called MTV’s Behind the Music — The Top 40, which will take an in-depth look at the 40 biggest artists of all time.
- The Real Criminal Minds, a true-crime docuseries based on the popular CBS crime drama.
