Paramount+ removes ‘The Real World: Homecoming’ and six other shows
Paramount+ has reportedly joined the trend of streaming platforms removing original shows to cut costs. The Real World: Homecoming, which reunites the cast of the original 1990s MTV reality series, got the start along with six other shows.
Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone reboot, which ran from 2019 to 2020, was also a casualty. Additionally, the streamer removed true crime drama Interrogation, animated series The Harper House, comedy No Activity, crime drama Coyote, and dark comedy Guilty Party. Parent company Paramount Global has not announced whether it will land elsewhere after its withdrawal.
The cuts follow similar removals from sister company Showtime, which Paramount will bring to Paramount+ later this year. (It will then take on the unfortunate rebrand, “Paramount + With Showtime.”) Rival streamer HBO Max recently pulled Westworld, Raised by Wolves, The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Nevers. They’ll start appearing this month with ads on a Roku and Tubi channel creatively titled “WB TV Series.”
