CBS All Access Gets A Very Original New Name In 2021

In 2021, you can watch streaming Star Trek shows not on CBS All Access! However, that is only because the service will be getting a rebrand. CBS All Access launched in 2014, but most people probably did not pay it much attention until Star Trek: Discovery launched on it in 2017.

We speculated that things might change for CBS All Access when it’s parent company announced that it would re-merge with Viacom, to form Voltron ViacomCBS, and it will come to pass in 2021. The new name for CBS All Access will be the very original name: Paramount+.

Along with the name change, came the announcement of five new original series that will be streaming on the service:

  • The Offer, a scripted limited series about the making of the iconic Oscar-winning film The Godfather, told from the perspective of film producer Al Ruddy, who will serve as an executive producer. Michael Tolkin (Escape From Dannemora) will write and also serve as an EP.
  • Lioness, a spy drama from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan that “follows a young Marine recruited to befriend the daughter of a terrorist to bring the organization down from within.”
  • A reboot of the classic VH1 docuseries Behind the Music titled MTV’s Behind the Music — The Top 40 that “will unlock MTV’s vault from the past 40 years for a unique and intimate look at the 40 biggest artists of all time, through their voices and their eyes.”
  • The Real Criminal Minds, a true-crime series based on the long-running CBS drama.
  • A revival of the hit BET drama The Game.

Here’s a trailer for the rebranded service:

Paramount+ should arrive in “early” 2021.
