Ghosts Season 3 - What We Know So Far

"Ghosts" will continue to live a rich life on the eye network. 

The monster hit series features a group of spirits that have passed away over the centuries on the land which is currently occupied by the Woodstone Estate. Upon the passing of a distant relative, Samantha "Sam" Arondekar (Rose McIver) inherits the manor house. The freelance journalist pulls up stakes and decamps to Western New York State immediately with her chef husband, Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar). Sam soon learns that the mansion is falling apart — and that it's inhabited by many ghosts — when she suffers a near-death experience. Now the only human in the house who can commune with its other, less visible residents, Sam serves as a conduit between the property's undead and the human world, conveying their wishes and trying to protect their spirits. After striking a bargain with the ghosts, Sam and Jay try to make use of the house by turning it into a bed and breakfast, which sometimes plunges them into moral dilemmas when unscrupulous outsiders try to make money off of Woodstone's infamous reputation.

"Ghosts" has been a huge hit for CBS, and it's unsurprising that, with only 11 episodes of Season 2 in the books, it has been renewed for a 3rd season. Here's what can you expect from Season 3 of "Ghosts." 

When will Season 3 of Ghosts be released?

Since Season 2 of "Ghosts" is still airing at press time, one can only make an educated guess as to what Seasons 3's time slot and start date will be. While Season 1 of "Ghosts" got a late start date and began airing on October 7, 2021, its success meant that Season 2 got off to an earlier start and began airing on September 29, 2022. Variety reports that the show has been doing boffo numbers, regularly clearing 9.2 million viewers in the Nielsen Live-Plus-7 ratings, which is nearly a streaming-era miracle. Between DVR rewatches and those who view the show in such locales at the official CBS website and Paramount+, that means that "Ghosts" regularly tops 10 million viewers per episode. 

With numbers that good, don't be surprised if the 3rd season of "Ghosts" begins airing in mid-to-late September for the 2023-2024 season. Much as Season 2 did, it's likely that the program will tape over the spring and summer months of 2023, with filming wrapping in the early fall. 

What's the plot of Ghosts Season 3?

Since the 2nd season of "Ghosts" is currently in the middle of airing and likely won't wrap until April or May of 2023, there's no telling as to where the plotline will be when it concludes. But some plot threads run eternal through the show's very heart, so it's natural that certain themes will recur over time.

Generally, we can presume we'll get to know even more about the ghosts' various backstories. Season 1 taught us more about the worlds of Hetty Woodstone (Rebecca Wisocky), Trevor Lefkowitz (Asher Grodman), Thorfinn (Devan Chandler Long), and Sasappis (Román Zaragoza)  Season 2 has filled us in on the lives of Susan Montero (Sheila Carrasco), Pete Martino (Richie Moriarty) and Alberta Haynes (Danielle Pinnock) so far. Details about the life of Captain Isaac Higgintoot (Brandon Scott Jones) have spanned both seasons so far. A number of mysteries surrounding the lives and deaths of the ghosts still linger on and chief among them is the identity of the person who poisoned Alberta. In Season 3, audience members will likely learn even more about who might have killed her.

Naturally, Sam and Jay will likely have to keep scrambling to make the B&B profitable, which will draw more ghosts out of the woodwork as more of Woodstone's secrets come to light.

There's also been drama on the romantic front. In the wake of Season 2's "The Christmas Spirit," both Isaac and his frenemy Nigel Chessum (John Hartman) and Hetty and Trevor are officially couples, with the latter pair canoodling in secret. Surely those romances will continue to evolve throughout Season 3. And certainly one of the ghosts will stumble upon Hetty and Trevor's secret.

Who will star in Season 3 of Ghosts?

Per The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, it appears that the show's entire main cast will continue to haunt Woodstone B&B in Season 3. That naturally means Rose McIver as Sam Arondekar and Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay Arondekar will be back. Obviously, the show's central eight ghosts will also return – Brandon Scott Jones as the jealous Captain Isaac Higgintoot; Danielle Pinnock as the spirited Alberta Haynes; Richie Moriarty as sweet Pete Martino; Asher Grodman as pantsless executive Trevor Lefkowitz; Sheila Carrasco as hippie bear attack victim Susan Montero or "Flower"; Devan Chandler Long as electricity-controlling viking Thorfinn; Rebecca Wisocky as prim and proper (to a point) Hetty Woodstone; and Román Zaragoza as drama-adoring Sasappis. 

Presumably recurring ghosts, such as John Hartman's Nigel Chessum; the cholera pit ghosts; Thor's son, Bjorn (Christian Jadah); and Sasappis' long-distance girlfriend Shiki (Crystle Lightning) will end up making further appearances. 

There have been no announced guest stars for Season 3 as of press time, but surely, some hidden spirits will haunt the house.

Who is the showrunner for Season 3 of Ghosts?

As of now, it appears that Joe Port and Joe Wiseman will continue serving as the series showrunners. They've both been with "Ghosts" since it hit the pilot stage, and recently signed a three-year overall deal with CBS Studios, according to Deadline. A statement released by CBS Entertainment head Amy Reisenbach at the time of the renewal of "Ghosts" indicates that Port and Wiseman are definitely both a key part of the show's success. "This season, executive producers Joe Port, Joe Wiseman and the brilliant cast delivered episodes that far surpassed our expectations [...] we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our Ghosts even better," Reisenbach stated. "Much like our viewers, we love them more each and every week. As the series continues to win fans on broadcast and streaming, we're thrilled to bring back this touching and hilarious comedy for a third season."

Wiseman and Port met while working as assistants on UPN's adaption of "Dilbert." They have since teamed up to write for shows such as "New Girl," CBS' reboot of "The Odd Couple," "The Office" and "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist."
