Paramount+ this week has given updates on its upcoming series, including Evil Season 3, Tulsa King, 1932 and Rabbit Hole. We’ll kick things off with the trailer and key art for Evil Season 3, which consists of 10 episodes and will premiere on Sunday, June 12.
Evil is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. Season three of Evil begins moments after the end of season two: when a newly ordained David and Kristen kiss.
The two not only have to navigate this fraught new reality, but contend with David’s involvement with “the entity,” an espionage unit within the Catholic church. Meanwhile, Ben finds his brain breaking from their unsolved cases and turns to his sister for help.
Evil is produced by CBS Studios in association with King Size Productions. Robert King, Michelle King, Liz Glotzer, Rockne S. O’Bannon and Nelson McCormick serve as executive producers.
The series is distributed internationally by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
The streaming service announced that its original series Tulsa King, starring Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone, will premiere with two episodes on Sunday, Nov. 13. Creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan serves as executive producer alongside Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Terence Winter (The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street), who will also be at the helm as showrunner and writer.
Currently in production in Oklahoma City, Okla., Tulsa King is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios. Mirroring the successful 2021 launches of 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown, Paramount Network will air a linear sneak peek of Tulsa King’s debut episode on Nov. 13, as a special simulcast event immediately following the season five premiere of Yellowstone.
Similarly, the second episode of Tulsa King will air behind Yellowstone on Nov. 20. All remaining episodes will be available to stream weekly on Sundays exclusively on Paramount+.
Tulsa King follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone), just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a “crew” from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.
The series also stars Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Jay Will, A.C. Peterson with Garrett Hedlund.
The series will be executive-produced by Sheridan, Winter, Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin and Allen Coulter. Braden Aftergood is also set to executive-produce.
Paramount+ also announced today that Academy Award winner Helen Mirren and Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford will star in the next installment of the Yellowstone origin story, previously announced as 1932 (working title). From Taylor Sheridan, the new series follows the record-breaking performance of 1883, the most-watched title ever on Paramount+ globally.
Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions, the series will debut on the service in December.
The next Yellowstone origin story will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.
1932 (working title) is executive produced by Taylor Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson.
And last but not least, production has begun in Toronto, Canada for the upcoming original series Rabbit Hole, starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by CBS Studios, the eight-episode season will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ later this year.
In Rabbit Hole, nothing is what it seems when John Weir, a master of deception in the world of corporate espionage, is framed for murder by powerful forces with the ability to influence and control populations.
Rabbit Hole introduces a dynamic cast including Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as Dr. Ben Wilson, Meta Golding as Hailey Winton, Enid Graham as Josephine “Jo” Madi, Jason Butler Harner as Valence, Walt Klink as The Intern and Rob Yang, who was recently announced as Edward Homm.
Sutherland serves as executive producer for Rabbit Hole, alongside writer-directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, Charlie Gogolak, Suzan Bymel and Hunt Baldwin. The series will be available exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. later this year and will also be available on Paramount+ internationally in Canada, Australia, U.K., Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France.
