If you’re a Waco fan looking forward to the sequel series, listen up. Your viewing plans just shifted a bit. Waco: The Aftermath will now air on Showtime, instead of Paramount+.

The move comes after Paramount and Showtime merged brands recently. Showtime is now a linear network, as well as a streaming add-on. Waco: The Aftermath hits Showtime streaming and on demand Friday, April 14, with an on-air linear premiere Sunday, April 16 at 10pm.

Now, since Showtime shares the Paramount+ platform, you will technically be streaming Waco: The Aftermath on Paramount+. However, note that you’ll need the “Paramount+ with Showtime” subscription (not the basic Paramount+ subscription) to do so.

The original 2018 Waco limited series premiered on Paramount Network. Now, five years later, the story continues, focusing on the fallout of the Waco disaster: the trials of the surviving members of the Branch Davidian sect and the rise of homegrown terrorist, Timothy McVeigh. The new series provides a broader context for the escalation of the American militia movement, which foreshadows the infamous attacks of the Oklahoma City bombing and the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

The cast of The Aftermath includes Michael Shannon, John Leguizamo, Giovanni Ribisi, David Costabile, J. Smith Cameron, John Hoogenakker, Keean Johnson, and Abbey Lee. Returning creators and showrunners Drew Dowdle and John Erick Dowdle direct all five episodes and executive produce the limited series.

Leading up to the sequel series premiere, the original Waco will also hit Showtime. You can watch it on-air beginning March 5 at 10pm.

Waco: The Aftermath streams on Paramount+ with Showtime starting April 14, and on the Showtime cable network April 16.
