Ghosts’ freshman season may have ended in April, but CBS is keeping the show’s spirit alive throughout its hiatus. The network will celebrate the breakout sitcom with several activations, stunts and online experiences throughout the summer. And though a summer campaign may seem odd for a show that won’t air new episodes until fall, there’s a method behind CBS’s ghoulish madness. Above: The campaign kicked off with the cast performing Ghosts: The Musical at the Paramount upfront.
he network has picked up first-year breakout Ghosts for a second season and renewed its Monday block of The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola as well. The three series join Young Sheldon, which is in the first year of a three-season pickup, on CBS’s roster next season. Led by Young Sheldon, the four shows are the most watched comedies on TV for the current season.
Production on CBS’ new hit comedy Ghosts has halted after an individual on the set of the series tested positive for COVID-19. The show, which shoots in Montreal, had been in the middle of producing its season finale when the COVID case forced the premature shutdown, according to sources.
The network has handed out a rapid second-season renewal to the supernatural comedy starring Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar. The show launched Oct. 7 to warm reviews and has performed well with the limited delayed viewing figures available.
