‘Ghosts’ Renewed For Season 4 At CBS

CBS is looking to scare up more laughs after handing an early Season 4 renewal to supernatural comedy Ghosts.

It is the latest renewal order for the Paramount-owned network, which also handed a third season to Fire Country and gave Justin Hartley series Tracker a second season earlier this month.

Ghosts, which is based on the BBC’s British comedy, has been a success for CBS since launching in 2021. Its third season is averaging over 10M viewers in live 7-day multiplatform viewing, which is marginally up from last year and streaming numbers are up on Paramount+, where the company said it ranked as its number one comedy in February.

The move gives some continuity to CBS’ comedy slate for next season as two of its longer running series, Young Sheldon and Bob Hearts Abishola are coming to an end. Elsewhere on the comedy front, the network has ordered a Young Sheldon spinoff starring Montana Jordan and Emily Osment and has Poppa’s House starring Damon Wayans launching later this year. The Neighborhood also launched its sixth season last month, although no news on a renewal for that show yet.

The early renewal decision presumably could also allow the network to plan ahead for a potential IATSE strike.

Ghosts stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar as a couple that inherits a rundown mansion in upstate New York that they decide to convert into a bed & breakfast. After a near-death experience, McIver’s character is suddenly able to see ghosts that inhabit the house.

Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, Sheila Carrasco, Rebecca Wisocky and Devon Chandler Long also star.

The series is executive produced by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, who serve as showrunners, Trent O’Donnell, Jay Karas, Matthew Baynton, Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond and Martha Howe-Douglas, Alison Carpenter, Debra Hayward, Alison Owen and Angie Stephenson.

It is produced by CBS Studios in association with Lionsgate Television and BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm. Deadline revealed that the deal between BBC Studios and Lionsgate, which spawned Ghosts, ended recently.

Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment called Ghosts a “proven viewer favorite”.
