Showtime and Paramount+ will be connected in a rebranding strategy made by Paramount Media Networks, Deadline reports. The television network has always been owned by Paramount, but has been its own brand. Now, that changes. And more changes are coming with some of its content.
The news outlet shares that it will now be called Paramount+ with Showtime on both television and streaming. Shows and movies on Showtime will begin streaming on the “Premium” Paramount+ subscription plan (no ads), which runs for $9.99/month. This only applies to U.S. viewers, per Deadline.
As these new integrations happen, that means some Showtime Originals are either scrapped, canceled, or completely removed from the current streaming platform. How many total removals and whether all the content will find a new home is not known at this time, according to Deadline.
So what’s no longer streaming on the Showtime platform? What shows have been removed? We’ve got the answer for you below.
All the shows being removed from Showtime’s streaming platform
According to Deadline, most of the shows that have been removed are those that are not as popular, as well as lasted only one season. Here is the full list so far:
- Let the Right One In (canceled and removed)
- American Gigolo (canceled and removed)
- American Rust
- On Becoming a God In Central Florida
- Super Pumped
- The End
A new series called Three Women, starring Shailene Woodley, will not be going forward even though the show “has been completed,” Deadline shares. Though there’s a possibility it could find a new home.
This move by Paramount emulates what Warner Bros. Discovery/HBO Max has been doing as well, thinning out its content to be more cost-effective. It’s an unfortunate new trend that’s begun with these production companies in the past year, and it doesn’t seem like the situation will let up any time soon.
