SCROLL TO CONTINUE WITH CONTENT

Paramount+ has plenty of new TV shows and movies coming in October 2023, including plenty of horror content for what’s become known as spooky season. Paramount+ launched in March 2021 as a rebranding of the CBS All Access streaming platform, with the goal of expanding its offerings and reach. Thanks to the re-merger between CBS and Viacom in 2019, Paramount+ also has access to Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and MTV libraries.

Unlike some of its competitors, Paramount+ has not put an emphasis on original movie programming except in the case of children’s films. However, the streaming service does have a popular lineup of exclusive original series, including the multiple-timeline and decade-spanning Yellowstone franchise. Properties are constantly being added to or taken out of the streamer’s library, however, and it’s not always easy to keep the collection straight. To help, here is a guide to everything new on Paramount+ in October 2023.

The first of the month is typically when streamers add most of their library content. This means older movies that originally premiered in theaters or on a television network become available to stream, usually for a limited time. October is often a month for many horror additions to streamers as there is an attempt to capitalize on Halloween falling at the end of the month. Paramount+ does add some horror content in October, like An American Haunting and The Grudge, but there’s actually an extensive variety of content as well.

There are blockbusters like Titanic and both the original and remakes of movies like The Italian Job, but a big addition is the first four Indiana Jones movies. While Indiana Jones might be on Disney+ and thought of as a Disney property, the movies were originally distributed by Paramount, so it makes sense that they would also find their way to Paramount+.

October 2

Jaime Camil in the title card for Loteria Loca

  • Lotería Loca (Season 1)
  • The Price is Right at Night (2023)

Game shows are the new additions to Paramount+ on October 2.

The new season of the 50-plus-season soap will start in October, and those new episodes will be available on Paramount+ after they air. As it has for years, the series follows the drama of the Newman and Abbott families, as well as their friends, lovers, and employees.

Monster High 2 is a sequel to the first movie for Nickelodeon in which teenagers who happen to be mythical monsters, like werewolves or vampires, go through their own high school drama. Some of that high school drama just happens to involve exposing secrets or saving lives.

Are You Afraid of the Dark's title card

  • Are You Afraid of the Dark? (2019) (Season 3)
  • Inside the Factory (Seasons 3-5)

Two very different shows are added to Paramount+ on October 11. Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid Of The Dark revival series adds its third season to the streamer.

The 2023 Frasier is a sequel to that series, bringing Kelsey Grammer back for a new chapter in the life of the character. While a lot of details about the series have been kept quiet, it is known that much of the previous cast will not be involved in the series, but it will return Frasier to Boston where Cheers was set.

October 13

Damon Wayans Jr and Jennie Mae Jenkins lauging next to the title Raid the Cage

Based on an Israeli game show of the same name, Raid The Cage features Damon Wayans Jr. and Jennie Mae Jenkins as hosts.

Correct answers to questions posed to the teams add time to their game clock. Episodes will air on CBS before being added to Paramount+.

October 16

Elena Kampouris looking confused in Vindicta

Appropriately, Vindicta is a horror thriller for Paramount+ in October. Starring Elena Kampouris, Sean Astin, and Jeremy Piven, the movie is about a serial killer. The official summary reads:

When a city is terrorized by a sadistic serial killer, a seasoned detective and a newly recruited paramedic are forced into a deadly game of vengeance, only to discover the key to stopping the bloodshed lies in unlocking the truth of their own haunted pasts.

Its addition to Paramount+ is Vindicta’s streaming premiere.

Paramount+ has a lot of documentaries or docuseries coming to the platform this month, and this look at Milli Vanilli will definitely be one of the most interesting for music fans.

The Isle of MTV Malta title over the image of a crowd at the music festival

  • Isle of MTV: Malta (2023)
  • Air Disasters (Seasons 1-7)
  • MTV Cribs (Season 19)
  • Reno 911! It’s A Wonderful Heist (2022)

The final date for new additions to Paramount+ in October is the 25th. It features reality series like MTV Cribs and Air Disasters as well as a TV movie for the popular comedy series Reno 911!. The library additions for Paramount+ are joined by another surprising add for Paramount+.

Isle Of MTV: Malta is a huge music festival hosted in Malta. It’s been held there since 2007. Paramount+ will bring the 2023 festival to their subscribers. The festival was held in July 2023 and the lineup included artists like Mimi Webb, OneRepublic, Delta Goodrem, and Alesso. Just how much of the festival will appear on Paramount+ isn’t clear, but clips of different performances have been available through MTV since the festival happened.

Throughout the month of October, Paramount+ also offers new content that is only available when subscribing to the Showtime bundle. Of course, if the new movies and TV shows on Paramount+ aren’t enough content for subscribers, Paramount also adds live sporting and news coverage on a regular basis. The content available depends on the playing schedules.
