ViacomCBS Inc. said it plans to launch an expanded version of its flagship streaming service early next year, leveraging the catalog of programs created by last year’s merger of Viacom and CBS.

Now known as CBS All Access, the service will be rebranded Paramount+, after ViacomCBS’s Paramount movie studio. It will relaunch with a slate of original shows exclusive to Paramount+, including “Lioness,” a spy drama from “Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan, and “The Offer,” a scripted series about the making of the mafia saga “The Godfather.”
