‘Ghosts’ Season 2 Preview


Ghosts | Extended Trailer | CBS Fall 2022See Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar in the returning CBS comedy this fall. 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…2022-09-16T17:36:38Z

When viewers last saw Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) and the motley crew of ghosts that haunt their bed and breakfast, the Arondekars beat their rival B&B owners the Farnsbys at a game of pickleball to get the Farnsbys to close their bed and breakfast. But the first guests arrived at Woodstone Manor, Sam and Jay went to answer the door and instead fell to the basement when a huge hole opened up in the floor of the foyer. Also, Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones) finally told Nigel (John Hartman) how he feels about him.

The first season of “Ghosts” was a huge hit for CBS and its streaming service, Paramount Plus.

“’Ghosts’ is one of the biggest comedy hits in years and one of the most talked about shows. It is the perfect addition to the fantastic pipeline of content driving peak streaming at Paramount Plus,” said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer at Paramount Plus, in a statement.

“With fresh story lines, an incredible cast and a brilliant creative team, “Ghosts’ is that rare television series that taps into the popular zeitgeist to become a cultural phenomenon,” said Jim Packer, president of the Lionsgate Worldwide Television Distribution Group, who negotiated the deal with Barbara Zaneri, chief program acquisitions officer for Paramount Global.

When the show returns for its second season, it sounds like hole in the floor is repaired and the B&B is open for business.

The premiere episode is titled “Spies,” and its description reads, “Sam enlists the Ghosts to help secure a good review from an overly critical couple staying at the B&B. Also, Isaac tries to integrate Nigel into his friend group.”

Then on October 6 comes episode two, titled “Alberta’s Podcast.” Its description reads, “Sam decides to host a podcast exploring the mystery surrounding Alberta’s death. Also, Hetty develops an unusual relationship with a broken washing machine.”

Episodes three and four, airing on October 13 and October 20, are titled “Jay’s Friends” and “The Tree.”

In a season two preview interview for CBS’ Watch magazine, the actors revealed that they get to improvise a lot, though the improv usually doesn’t make the final cut.

“We improvise quite a bit, but it’s often not for the end product. It’s for each other and the crew. We generally know now if we’ve gone off script for too long, it’s not going to make it to the final cut,” said Ambudkar. “But if we get the crew to laugh, we will have made the long day a little bit brighter for each other.”

“I am new to improv,” said McIver. “It’s a skill set I’m learning. I have this incredible team of trained improvisers around me, and my job has been to let these guys shine and let them polish episodes with cool, interesting details that you can only discover on that day. It’s a sign of confidence and belief in everybody that we are allowed to do that.”

“Ghosts” season 2 premieres on Thursday, September 29 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on CBS.
