During Paramount (fka ViacomCBS) investor’s event presentation, Paramount+ announced a slew of series renewal and new series orders.
Renewals have been announced for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Queen of the Universe, The Challenge: All Starrs and The Real World Homecoming, which heads to New Orleans next. David “Tokyo” Broom, Melissa Howard, Jamie Murray, Danny Roberts, Matt Smith, Julie Stoffer and Kelley Wolf are participating.
New series orders include The Challenge: War of the Worlds, featuring winners from four new Challenge series, Ink Master and All Star Shore.
All Star Shore is “a competition docu-series that will feature 14 of reality TV’s most iconic stars from around the world and television’s biggest series – including JERSEY SHORE FAMILY VACATION, LOVE IS BLIND, RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE, GEORDIE SHORE, ACAPULCO SHORE, BACHELOR IN PARADISE and more – as they come together for an epic vacation at the ultimate “Shore” house in Gran Canaria, Spain, to battle it out for the grand prize and global bragging rights.
“MTV created reality TV with the launch of THE REAL WORLD in 1992. Building on that success, we’ve seen a huge demand on Paramount+ for more reality content,” said McCarthy. “As the global expansion of the streaming service continues to accelerate, we’re doubling down on our hit unscripted franchises, which have been a key driver in fueling the service’s growth.”
A CBS version of The Challenge is also coming, aptly titled The Challenge: CBS (working title). As the description states: For the first time in “Challenge” history, reality titans from the CBS universe will compete in the most unpredictable and demanding game of their lives. With an ever-changing game, players will be in a constant state of paranoia and unable to trust anyone but themselves. The CBS all-stars will compete on THE CHALLENGE: CBS this summer on the CBS Television Network for a chance to join the upcoming global “War of the Worlds” championship.
