What’s New on Paramount Plus in October 2021

Outside of a few pre-sold, franchise-based hits (The Good Fight, anything with the words “Star Trek” in the title), Paramount+ hasn’t managed much in the way of breakout hits since it was re-birthed from the ashes of CBS All Access earlier this year. But maybe that will change this month with the premiere of Guilty Party (Oct. 14), an extremely-of-this-moment new half-hour dramedy arriving on the streamer in October.

It seems to be the kind of show you might find on HBO, or maybe airing after Showtime’s Black Monday. (Incidentally, you can now bundle Paramount+ and Showtime for one low cost! I got some PR emails about it, but you can probably google it. Okay here.) It features a big-name star who used to be in movies a lot, but not so much lately (Kate Beckinsale), and a premise that feels very 2021 (a disgraced white journalist tries to make a name for herself by turning a wrongly incarcerated Black woman into her signature cause cébre), and a tone that appears, from the trailer at least, to wander all over the map between broad comedy, sharp satire, and cutting drama.

Writer/creator Rebecca Addelman worked on New Girl and Netflix’s similarly genre-chaotic Dead to Me, so it appears she’s got the chops. Hopefully for Paramount+, this is the breakout they need.

That’s not to say the ol’ Blue Mountain is eschewing a formula it knows works—its other exclusive series premiere this month is Star Trek: Prodigy (Oct. 28), an animated series that seeks to convert the next generation of kids into franchise fans.

And on the film side, they’ll be debuting a new entry in the Paranormal Activity series; after a delay, Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin will skip theaters to drop on the streamer on Oct. 29.

And does Madonna count as a franchise? Because her latest concert film, Madame X, will start streaming Oct. 8. Familiar faces all around. Please subscribe, won’t you? Here’s everything you can expect coming to the streamer in October.
