We can’t wait to haunt these halls for a third season.” Take a look at the official post below: 

Ghosts Season 3: What to expect?

We would like to bring attention to the fact that the exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed by the network. However, it has been speculated that the forthcoming season would most likely have a release window suggested to be around the fall of 2023-2024 season.

As, the second season premiered its pilot episode on September 29, 2022, it is expected to follow a similar time slot, with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis on Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS and later available to stream on Paramount Plus. Of course, this is just speculation! Hence, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the third season.

The series follows a struggling young couple, Samantha, played by McIver, and Jay, played by Ambudkar, whose dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house, only to find it’s both falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents.

“This season, executive producers Joe Port, Joe Wiseman, and the brilliant cast delivered episodes that far surpassed our expectations. From the opening of the Woodstone B&B to epic Halloween and Christmas episodes, we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our Ghosts even better. Much like our viewers, we love them more each and every week,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. Further adding, “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.”
