Paramount has announced the movies, TV shows and sports coming to the Paramount+ streaming service in October. The Paramount Plus October 2023 lineup includes Original series Frasier, featuring the return of Kelsey Grammer as the iconic character Frasier Crane for the first time in 20 years.
The Paramount Plus October 2023 slate also includes romantic limited series Fellow Travelers, starring Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey. And the service has resurrected the fan-favorite Peak Screaming collection, which will feature the premiers of Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, Monster High 2 and Bargain.
It’s been 20 years since he’s been on the air, but Dr. Frasier Crane is back! In the Paramount+ Original series Frasier, the title character has moved back to Boston to be closer to his grown son Freddy.
Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers can stream Fellow Travelers, a decades-spanning love story starring Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey. The show was created for television by Oscar nominee Ron Nyswaner and based on the novel by Thomas Mallon.
The Paramount+ Peak Screaming collection has been jolted back to life with more than 25 creepily-curated carousels, including “Big Screen’s Big Screams,” “Horror Heroines,” “Family Fright Night” and “A24 Horror” with more than 400 fan-favorite horror movies, series and episodes such as Scream VI, Smile, Evil, Ghosts, A Quiet Place Part II and many more. New films and specials are also making their debut.
Sometimes… dead is better. That’s the haunting lesson at the heart of Stephen King’s twisted tale Pet Sematary. In Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, a spine-tingling prequel to the 2019 film, we travel back to 1969 to learn more about the unnatural patch of ground in Ludlow, Maine where grieving families bury their dead with the hope that they will rise again.
Class is back in session for the world’s most unusual students when Monster High 2 premieres on the service. Clawdeen, Frankie and Draculaura are in for some hair-raising adventures as they step into the “human world,” contend with a new frenemy — popular werecat Torelai — and sing new bops we’ll be humming all season.
The critically-acclaimed Korean dystopian thriller series Bargain is filled with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat. Investigators are tracking down a ring of organ traffickers when a devastating earthquake traps them alongside the criminals in a crumbling building from which they must escape.
Trick-or-treaters will be delighted by A Really Haunted Loud House. In this spooky special, Lincoln Loud and his best friend Clyde McBride undertake a Halloween adventure in which they must decide between upholding the tradition of the signature Loud Family spooktacular or attending a party hosted by the cool new kid at school.
Read on to see all the Paramount Plus October 2023 Originals, library TV shows and movies, and sports. The titles with an asterisk (*) are available to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers.
