Workaholics will return to Paramount + with a brand new movie. Several key announcements were made on Thursday about the upcoming content of the new streaming service, including revivals and reboots of several popular TV shows from fans over the years. The news also came with the revelation that the streamer will be the exclusive to host a new workaholics film starring returning cast members Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck.
Runs on Comedy Central for seven seasons Workaholics was on the air from 2011 to 2017. His cast also stand behind most of the writing and creative direction of the series. The show follows a group of college dropouts and roommates who all work together at a telemarketing company in California. They often run into co-workers and each other as they have never quite outgrown partying, drinking, smoking, and strings. Over the course of its run, the series drew a large audience and developed a large cult following.
The Workaholics The crew continued to work together after their series ended at Comedy Central. In 2018, the group wrote and starred in the action comedy film Game Over, Man! directed by Newacheck. Even though they don’t play the same characters, the chemistry is still there. The actors now play three housekeepers in a luxury hotel who face the opportunity and become heroes when the building is overtaken by terrorists. The film, with various guest stars including Joel McHale, Steve-O, Mark Cuban and Jillian Bell, is now streamed on Netflix.
Workaholics isn’t the only Comedy Central series that Paramount is using for its new streaming service.

Last year Comedy Central ordered two seasons for a revival of the MTV animated series, and it has just announced that a new adaptation will be streamed on Paramount +. Combine this with a Frasier Revival among other titles, and it’s clear that Paramount + is making great strides with its comedy selection offering in hopes of rivaling Disney +, Netflix, and other streaming services.

One has to wonder what other shows will end up reviving as the streamers keep building their content.
