The hauntings are just beginning at CBS. Last week the network announced that new series Ghosts would be scaring up laughs for a second season. Not that it would have a reason to exorcize the show considering the freshman hit has become the most-watched broadcast TV comedy for the season with an average of 8.216 million total viewers.
Adapted by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman from the British series of the same name, Ghosts revolves around young couple Sam and Jay, played by Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, who inherit an old estate with designs on opening it as a bed-and-breakfast, only to find they are roomies with a haunted mansion worth of specters. Only Sam can see and speak with them, but Jay gives it his best shot to be supportive of the resident spirits while also being a good husband.
The show, which airs on CBS Thursdays at 9 p.m./8 p.m. central, as well as on the Paramount+ platform, is currently in reruns following its 13th episode on Jan. 20, where a nasty spirit (played by reliable comedian Matt Walsh) makes his introduction. And there is an entire second half of a season to look forward to when Ghosts returns Feb. 24.
But you needn’t wait for a tease of the Ghosts stories yet to come. In a recent livestream interview for Den of Geek’s new paranormal pop culture show Talking Strange, McIver, Ambudkar, Port, and Wiseman joined to talk about the show — and hint at some upcoming plotlines involving a new ghost in the house, Viking therapy, and a certain ghost’s missing trousers.
