After Ghosts, the BBC One adaptation got a second season back in January. Ghosts Season 2 will release in less than a month, and the network’s official Twitter account announced on 23 July that the horror comedy would return on Thursday, September 29, in a new 8:30 p.m. time slot.
The time slot change may have also caught the attention of keen-eyed viewers. Although we are unsure of the cause, it is most likely unimportant. According to Programming Insider, the show has very high ratings, so it’s doubtful that a bit of change in its time slot will turn away viewers.
Instead, it may be that CBS wants to shift a struggling series or a brand-new program into the time slot that “Ghosts” held during its first season since it was popular with viewers.
What’s the storyline for Ghosts Season 2?
The first season of the show is quite simple. The invisible creature residents of an old building don’t want a bunch of bothersome living people coming and leaving and (though mistakenly) hurting them by floating through their temporary presence, so they oppose the young, cute couple’s plans to convert it into a hugely profitable bed and breakfast.
They make every effort to get rid of the live visitors, but when everyone understands that Sam (Rose McIver), who had a near-death experience, can see and speak with the ghosts, they stop arguing and try to work things out together.
In terms of the main plot, a newly released teaser trailer (more on it in a moment) indicates that fans may expect more of what they have already seen. The massive cliffhanger over whether Jay’s (Utkarsh Ambudkar) fall has given him the power to see ghosts now, too, is also addressed in this episode.
It isn’t easy to foresee where this may lead the program. On the one hand, it wouldn’t be the most shocking thing a comedy program has ever done to build up the anticipation and then rapidly blow it at the start of Season 2.
What Cast Members have Been Confirmed for Season 2 of Ghosts?
For Ghosts Season 2, the bulk of the original actors from the first season will be back. The charming pair Samantha and Jay Arondekar, played by Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, return as the show’s stars.
Samantha is a freelance writer who experienced a near-death experience and has since acquired the power to see ghosts.
Chef Jay, unemployed, makes every effort to support his wife. All ghosts were former residents of the Arondekar’s estate, and when they died in strange and hilarious ways, their spirits became imprisoned there.
A sitcom generally finds its ground in the second season. Ghosts series aims to be a fun, light comedy that doesn’t demand too much of its viewers and still manages to be a smart show.
While handling an extensive and expanding cast, the first season did an excellent job setting up the characters and concepts. Let’s hope the same for the second season.
