According to Variety, Paramount+ has pulled the plug on Joe Pickett after two seasons. Produced by Paramount Television Studios, the Michael Dorman-led neo-Western crime drama initially premiered as a Spectrum original series in 2021. Spectrum announced a second season, which moved to Paramount+ when the Spectrum Originals program shut down. Joe Pickett Season 2 premiered on the Paramount Global-owned streaming service earlier this year.
