CBS is excited about its freshman series this fall.
The network has a year-round order Ghosts for the 2021-2022 season. Starring Rose McIver, the series is the most watched new comedy of the season. That news comes after just three episodes – the first two aired in sequence on October 7th – and just hours before the fourth.
“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, programming, CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “We loved Ghosts from day one, and thanking the outstanding executive producers, cast and writers for bringing to life the boldest and most unique comedy you will find on television this season. “
Ghosts is the third new fall show and third new CBS show to be picked up for an entire season. It follows on FBI: International and NCIS: Hawaiiwhose orders were announced a week and a half ago.
Based on a British show, the comedy follows McIvers Samantha and her husband, Utkarsh Ambudkars Jay, as they plan to convert a huge rundown estate they inherited into a bed and breakfast. The only problem? It is inhabited by the many ghosts of the residents who died there and now call it home. Samantha is the first person alive who can see and hear her.
These ghosts include: 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 overly optimistic ’80s scout troop leader (Richie Moriarty); a cod-obsessed Viking explorer from 1009 (Devon Chandler Long); a chic ’90s financial brother (Asher Grodman); a sarcastic and witty 16th century native (Román Zaragoza); and a 19th-century civil society wife and wife of a robber baron who is Samantha’s ancestor (Rebecca Wisocky).
