It is a rebrand of the currently existing CBS All Access, but tied in to the announcement was a host of new titles, many of them based on pre-existing movies and TV shows.

While Paramount Plus is due to launch in the States very soon, there is currently no set release date on the side of the Atlantic.

Until we get that news, here are all of the remakes, reboots, sequels, and spin-offs we have to look forward to. This isn't the full list, just the cherry-picked ones that got our attention immediately:
