Tulsa King and more need to head to Netflix next

The "streaming wars" have taken some intriguing turns in the last few years. One of the most notable was the surprise announcement that Paramount+ would be allowing the first season of its hit School Spirits to also air on Netflix. This has been a boon as viewership for the show has skyrocketed since Netflix gets more subscribers than Paramount+ does. 

It's led to a question if other Paramount+ shows can follow suit. There are a few on there that could benefit from a Netflix showing, and the possibility that a Netflix boost may lead to some canceled shows being revived. For crime show buffs, these Paramount+ shows would be a great addition to Netflix as well and expand their popularity more.

1. Tulsa King

In his first regular TV series, Sylvester Stallone plays Dwight "The General" Manfredi, a New York mobster fresh out of a 25-year jail sentence. He's annoyed when his bosses immediately send him to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to set up an operation there. Discovering a new market, Dwight starts to build his own criminal empire. 

Stallone is fantastic in the lead, using his age well but still able to beat down a guy. His romance with a DEA agent is well done, with subplots of rival gangs after him and a compelling finale. With Season 2 having been ordered, putting this on Netflix would be a nice boost for the series, and the binge model fits it well.

2. Coyote

Emmy award winner Michael Chiklis highlights this short-lived but intriguing series. He played Ben Clemens, a veteran Border Patrol agent who dedicated his life to keeping out illegal immigration. After settling into retirement, he runs into a young woman on the run from a cartel. As he tries to aid her, Ben sees a different side to the people he'd long considered criminals. 

It lasted just six episodes, yet this is a thriller of a show with Chiklis in fine form, showing Ben slowly coming around to helping those in need and facing his darker past. This show slipped under the radar for many but could be a good revival courtesy of a Netflix showing.
