Breakout sitcom, Ghosts, has been renewed for a second season on CBS as part of its 2022-2023 comedy line-up.
The show has been adapted from the British BBC sitcom, also titled Ghosts, and follows young couple Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), who inherit a beautiful, idyllic country home – only to find out that the ghosts of former residents live there, too.
Ghosts is set to join The Neighbourhood, Bob Hearts, Abishola, and Young Sheldon, all of which have been renewed by CBS.
The aforementioned series are the top four most-watched comedies on TV this season, and their popularity has helped to see CBS succeed.
Ghosts, whose first episode, aired on October 7th, 2021, has done very well in its first season, which has led to the series getting the green light for future episodes.
Kelly Kahl, CBS Entertainment president, has spoken to THR about the success of the series as well as the plan for Season 2.
She explained: “Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, together with a breakout cast and exceptional writers, have done a superb job of adapting Ghosts for the U.S. and absolutely making it their own. This smart and charming show is delivering new creative highs, not to mention scaring up new audience highs, every week.”
Ghosts is produced by CBS Studios, Lionsgate Television, and BBC Studios in Los Angeles. Showrunners Joe Port and Joe Wiseman have previously worked together as co-executive producers on popular shows like New Girl and The Crazy Ones, so they have a stark rapport.
The show’s first season averaged over eight million viewers per episode, so it is no wonder CBS wishes to continue the story; but, can season two prove itself to be just as strong?
Shows such as this one can be hard to maintain, especially when the first season resonates so well with audiences; it can be difficult to keep the same comedic atmosphere and please everyone as season one did.
Ghosts’ second season is expected to premiere sometime this year (2022).
