School Spirits Offical Teaser Trailer

The official teaser of 50 seconds was released by the network a few hours ago and showcases a teen who is stuck in the afterlife and decides to investigate her disappearance with a group of other students who are also stuck in limbo at their high school. The teaser also makes a hint at what is likely to be one of the series’ biggest features: a group of “spirits” who can vent to one another about how they feel like they left this world too soon. The Breakfast Club meets Ghostbusters with the colorful individuals from the support group. Apart from that, when the lines between life and the afterlife start to blur, we can also anticipate a lot of dark humor and deadpan humor. Take a look at the official teaser trailer below:
