3. Evil (2019 – Present)
As the name suggests, the show falls in the horror genre. Evil follows a trio of a psychologist, a priest-in-training, and a contractor. The three investigate all abnormal activities.

Another addition from the Star Trek franchise. The Strange New Worlds is a relatively newer show in the franchise, but it has amassed some of the best ratings from users. The show is a prequel to Star Trek: The Original Series. As for its plot, it is focused on the USS Enterprise crew under Captain Christopher Pike’s leadership.
1. 1883 (2021-2022)
1883 is currently regarded as the best Paramount Plus original. The show is a prequel to the highly acclaimed show Yellowstone. After one season, the show has a phenomenal rating of 8.8/10. However, since the series was a prequel, there is very little chance that it will get a sequel in the future.
