No more picking and choosing ghosts: In the later half of the first season, each of the ghosts of “Ghosts” will be seen in every episode, the producers said on Friday’s CBS winter press tour.
We also finally find out what happened to Trevor’s (Asher Grodman) pants.
âGhostsâ, which is doing extremely well in the TV ratings, received a year-round contract in October.
“We are thrilled that this spirited new comedy has met with audiences and critics alike and is off to a great start,” said Thom Sherman, senior executive vice president of programming at CBS Entertainment at the time. “We have loved ‘Ghosts’ since day one, and thank the outstanding executive producers, cast and writers for bringing to life the bravest and most unique comedy you will find on television this season.”
“Ghosts” is a one-camera comedy starring Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar as Samantha and Jay, a cheerful freelance journalist and aspiring city cook who throw caution and money to the wind when they decide to do a huge shabby Convert the estate they inherited into a bed and breakfast – only to find it is inhabited by the many ghosts of deceased residents who now call it home.
The Departed Souls are a close-knit, eclectic group that includes a cheeky Prohibition-era lounge singer (Danielle Pinnock); a pompous 18th century militiaman (Brandon Scott Jones); a 1960s hippie who loves hallucinogens (Sheila Carrasco); an over-optimistic ’80s scout troop leader (Richie Moriarty); a cod-obsessed Viking explorer from 1009 (Devon Chandler Long); a chic financial brother of the 90s (Grodman); a sarcastic and witty 16th century native (RomÃ¡n Zaragoza); and a 19th-century society wife and wife of a robber baron who is Samantha’s ancestor (Rebecca Wisocky), to name a few. If the ghosts have been concerned about the excitement a renovation and B&B will cause in their home, it is nothing compared to the fact that Samantha is the first person alive who can see and hear her.
Executive producers include Joe Port & Joe Wiseman, Mathew Baynton, Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond and Martha Howe-Douglas; Alison Carpenter, Debra Hayward and Alison Owen (Monumental TV); Angie Stephenson (BBC Studios); and Trent O’Donnell. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Lionsgate Television and the production arm of BBC Studios in Los Angeles.
“Ghosts” airs Thursdays at 9:00 pm on CBS and can be streamed live and on demand on Paramount +.
