Whats New on Paramount+ in May 2022

Image: Strange New Worlds advertising poster/ParamountParamount keeps restarting Star Trek, and I keep returning, hoping whatever theyre trying now will hit like The Next Generation did back in the 90s (I am really old). Unusual New Worlds is the current effort, and Ill be damed if the trailer doesnt make it seem like theyve finally gotten it right.Star Trek is a franchise– and I say this as a long time adherent– that has actually always struggled when intending for an audience bigger than the geeks who currently like Star Trek. The JJ Abrams reboot films are fun and fancy unique results rollicks, but they play more like action-packed Marvel films than the sort of ideas-first stories that fueled the numerous traditional series finest episodes. For me, Discovery and Picard appeared to be using up excessive energy chasing Prestige TV buzz and building out Game of Thrones-level tradition. I like a lot about both of them, but they arent what I am trying to find from an episode of Star Trek.When does Star Trek: Strange New Worlds premiere on Paramount+? Strange New Worlds looks like it might lastly get the balance right when it premieres on May 5. The trailer assures to take us back to the earliest voyages of the U.S.S. Enterprise under the command of Captain Pike (Anson Mount, who has hair so cool Shatner probably finds it personally offending). It looks missions-focused, vibrantly colored, and fun (rather of severe and brooding), and Rebecca Romjin gets to be the first officer, fulfilling a pledge made in the unaired pilot of the Star Trek: TOS all those years earlier. Im onboard.Also getting here on the streamer this month: The very first season of Joe Pickett, which is obviously the highest-rated “Spectrum Originals” series ever, whatever Spectrum Originals is. The adjustment of the bestselling C.J. Box novels has been renewed for a 2nd season, so now is your chance to capture up (while you determine what a Spectrum Original is so you can view season 2 live). Heres everything else coming in May– including a pretty strong list of old films (watch Paper Moon!).
