Everything New Streaming On Paramount+ In May 2023

monthly list - paramount plus and showtime

After one of their best months yet in April, Paramount+ in May has made a slight retreat backwards with catalog additions. There are no missing Nickelodeon shows this month despite the library being in desperate need of numerous shows from the past 25 years. We still have no rescheduled date for The Astronauts which no-showed in January and still no date for Drama Club which wrapped 2 years ago in May and is streaming outside USA. Not cool. In April we got Middlemost Post Season 1 which ended long after Drama Club, so it appears Paramount ignores and skips some shows.

Drama Club: Coming Never To Paramount+ USA?

We’re back to only representing a few of their brands. It amazes me how they keep finding more overdue MTV reality show seasons to drop in. Something worth noting is the January 2023 Nick special, The Tidal Zone SpongeBob Universe Special, is coming already! No two year wait! So, can we please end this horrible Nickelodeon / MTV / VH1 / CMT / Logo windowing now? Let’s add Aaron & Erin Season 1 episode batch in June… PLEASE? HELP YOUR SHOWS SUCCEED AND FIND AUDIENCES BEFORE YOU CANCEL THEM.

Where is iCarly Season 3?

iCarly season 3 continues to be MIA. I’m sorry, but when you’re only filming 10 half hour episodes, it should not be 14+ months between seasons. They’ve mishandled the series when it could have been a cornerstone of Paramount+ for years to come. It was very popular, but while How I Met Your Father season 2 got a 20-episode order from Hulu, Paramount+ ridiculously cut episodes after season 1. Season 3 is probably just as short as season 2. How hard is it it to release a sitcom that people subscribed to watch releasing new episodes?

Weekly Episodes will continue through May for: Yellowjackets season 2*, Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, and Beavis and Butthead season 2!

*Yellowjackets requires a subscription to the Paramount+ with Showtime tier.

STAFF PICK #1 – SCREAM 6 (Added April 26)

STAFF PICK #2 – BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD (Season 2)

STAFF PICK #3 – YELLOWJACKETS (Season 2)

💥 – True catalog arrival (Sloth does not apply as these titles are older than 2 years and thus were not victimized by the windowing strategy of current shows)
