There will probably be no second season for 60 Minutes+, the streaming model of the CBS News newsmagazine. Paramount+ has canceled the sequence after one season.
“We are proud of the team at 60 Minutes+ and of the stories they produced, which informed the audience about some of the most important issues of our time,” Paramount+ mentioned in a press release to Deadline. “Their journalism was recognized with several awards, including a Gracie, National Headliner and NABJ Salute to Excellence Award. The excellent work that has been done by the 60+ team will continue to be on Paramount+.”
The program featured longer segments and a brand new crew of correspondents, together with Laurie Segall, Enrique Acevedo, Seth Doane and Wesley Lowery. They all reported for 60 in 6, the shortform newsmagazine that was featured on the short-lived subscription service Quibi in 2020.
Variety was first to report the cancellation.
