What if there were a bunch of ghosts hanging out in an old creepy house you built, and you could see them, and—instead of being super scary—they’re actually kinda funny? That’s the premise of the CBS show Ghosts, and the trailer for the series’ second season shows that they’re all trying to get along as the living among them attempt to convert the space into a bed and breakfast.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
GHOSTS is a single-camera comedy about Samantha and Jay, a cheerful freelance journalist and up-and-coming chef from the city, respectively, who throw both caution and money to the wind when they decide to convert a huge rundown country estate they inherited into a bed & breakfast—only to find it’s inhabited by the many spirits of deceased residents who now call it home. The departed souls are a close-knit, eclectic group that includes a saucy Prohibition-era lounge singer (Danielle Pinnock); a pompous 1700’s Militiaman (Brandon Scott Jones); a ‘60s hippie fond of hallucinogens (Sheila Carrasco); an overly upbeat ‘80s scout troop leader (Richie Moriarty); a cod-obsessed Viking explorer from 1009 (Devon Chandler Long); a slick ‘90s finance bro (Asher Grodman); a sarcastic and witty Native from the 1500s (Román Zaragoza); and a society woman and wife of an 1800’s robber baron who is Samantha’s ancestor (Rebecca Wisocky), to name a few. If the spirits were anxious about the commotion a renovation and B&B will create in their home, it’s nothing compared to when they realize Samantha is the first live person who can see and hear them.
I’ve seen a few episodes of the first season of this network show and it’s rather charming! The first season is on Paramount+ if you want to check it out, and the second season premieres on Thursday, September 29, at 8:30 pm ET/PT on CBS and also on Paramount+.
