Cbs' ghosts: every ghost time period & backstory explained.

The CBS sitcom Ghosts features eight characters who died during different historical periods. Here's a guide to each one's backstory and death.

  • Ghosts on CBS' Ghosts come from various time periods, forming a unique family. Their deaths range from lightning strikes to diseases.
  • Thorfinn, the oldest ghost, is a Viking who died around the 1020s. Sasappis, a Lenape man, died in the 1520s and loves discussing deaths.
  • Alberta, a jazz singer from the 1920s, was poisoned by her bootlegger boyfriend. Pete, who died in 1985, is a chipper ghost with no unique powers.

CBS' Ghosts features a cast full of spectral characters that each hail from a distinct time period, making fans wonder what order did the ghosts die in Ghosts ? Each ghost comes with its own unique backstory and death. Though each of the eight ghosts has a wildly different perspective based on their experiences throughout history, they nonetheless form a sort of family, which is one of the show's greatest charms. After all, being stuck with the same people for all eternity allows for plenty of time to get to know each other. Ghosts stars Utkarsh Ambudkar and Rose McIver as Jay and Sam, a young couple who inherit a mansion in upstate New York.

In an adaptation of a BBC show of the same name, the couple discovers the house also comes with several ghostly inhabitants, who Sam is able to see after a near-death experience. These are Thorfinn (Devan Long), Sasappis (Román Zaragoza), Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones), Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky), Alberta (Danielle Pinnock), Flower (Sheila Carrasco), Pete (Richie Moriarty), and Trevor (Asher Grodman). Although other ghosts feature in the show, such as those in the basement " cholera pit ," the British soldiers from the shed outside, and even Hetty's nefarious husband Elias, the main eight are the most fully fleshed-out and will continue to be in Ghosts season 3 .

Unlike Marvel's Thor from the MCU , with whom he shares a name, Thorfinn is not a god, although he does have some pseudo-lightning powers. The oldest ghost in the show, Thorfinn is a Viking who traveled to North America but was accidentally left behind by his compatriots. The Vikings' historical voyage was about 1000 years ago, meaning Thorfinn died around the 1020s. He died on the land that would one day hold Sam and Jay's house after being struck by lightning, which leaves him with the ghostly ability to make lights flicker. Never one to pass up a good discussion about fishing or fighting wild animals, Thorfinn is a Viking through and through.

When it comes to what order the ghosts died in Ghosts , Sasappis is about 500 years younger than Thorfinn, dying in the 1520s. He's a Lenape man, an indigenous group from the Hudson Valley in New York as well as parts of present-day Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Unlike most of the other specters in Ghosts , Sasappis has yet to reveal how he died, but one of his favorite pastimes is reminding all the others of how they met their ends, most of which he was there for.

While this ghost's backstory remains unknown, it is revealed in Ghosts season 1, episode 7 that a woman Sass loved in life, Shiki, is also a ghost, and he tries to get in touch with her. Sasappis is also a big fan of watching TV and often asks Sam and Jay to cook junk food, so he can smell it.

A Revolutionary War captain who knew the likes of real-life figures Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr , Isaac Higgentoot unfortunately died of dysentery before he could make any lasting historical mark of his own. Killed by the disease sometime between 1775 and 1783, when the American Revolutionary War was taking place, Isaac now has the ghost power to make people smell sewage any time they walk through him.

Despite these circumstances, however, Isaac always maintains his pride, as evidenced when he has to negotiate with the Redcoats who also died on the property back in the day, including British officer Nigel, who Isaac has an obvious crush on despite having accidentally shot him.

Sam and Jay's house, Woodstone Manor, was built in the late 1800s by a family of robber barons, and it's this lineage and time period that Hetty hails from. But Hetty has started to gradually let go of her antiquated notions and bigotries as Ghosts goes on. As with Sasappis, Hetty's death is also still a mystery, but given the corruption she was a part of during her life and the vile nature of her husband Elias, she certainly had no shortage of enemies who might have wanted to off her.

There was only one thing known about her death. Hetty was wearing dry clothes and died in heels. As for ghost powers, Hetty hasn't displayed any unique abilities yet but does manage to possess Jay in season 1, episode 10, which is something all ghosts seem capable of.

A jazz singer from the 1920s, Alberta finally confirms her suspicions in Ghosts episode 9 that she was poisoned by her no-good bootlegger boyfriend. But while Alberta has an unfortunate Great Gatsby -style death, she also embodies a lot of what made the 20s roaring, as well. From her tasseled flapper attire to her lively vocabulary, and from her confident singing voice to her fiery passion for women's rights, Alberta is one of Ghosts ' most engaging and fun characters.

Fittingly, her special ghostly ability is that she can be heard humming by the living when she so chooses. And although Alberta offers constant reminders of all the low lives and two-timers she's dated, she may have a romance arc with Pete in store later on.

As her name suggests, Flower is a hippie from the 1960s who was killed by a bear on the Woodstone property after leaving a nearby music festival. If she looks familiar to some viewers, it's because Sheila Carrasco, who plays her, has had brief appearances on other shows like The Good Place and Jane the Virgin . Flower's ghost power is that people who walk through her get high for about an hour, and she herself is often forgetful and off chasing butterflies. But Flower has interesting depth to her character as well, as she was involved in multiple cults and cult-like organizations in her life, and even helped one such group rob a bank.

Of all the eponymous characters in Ghosts , Pete's death is the most apparent. Shot in the neck by one of the Scouts from the troop he was leading, Pete met his untimely demise in 1985 and still has the arrow in his neck to prove it. Despite the tragedy of his passing, however, and the later revelation in Ghosts episode 6 that his wife was cheating on him in life, Pete is perpetually chipper in Ghosts . What is Pete's ghost power? While he doesn't possess a unique ghostly ability, Pete's affinity for compromise and teambuilding makes him a crucial member of the ghosts' de facto family and could earn him a shot at romance with Alberta later on.

Trevor is the youngest of the ghosts, whose special power is touching or moving solid objects (with great effort). A spoiled yuppie party boy who died in the late 1990s, Trevor is all about popularity and scoring attractive women. Trevor died when he and his colleagues went to stay in the Woodstone Mansion, and he took some pills with some alcohol while partying. This caused him to overdose, and he died of a heart attack. His friends just dumped his body in the lake and never talked about it again. Only Sasappis originally knew the truth of his death, but Jake fished his head out of the late in "Trevor's Body."

Most of the ghosts in Ghosts are kind, funny, and often helpful. However, there is one ghost who was mostly only had a short stint on the show and is none of those things. Elias Woodstone is Hetty's husband (and cousin). While he was alive, his marriage was not good because he was controlling and had several mistresses. His death came when he ended up locked in his vault by its designer after Elias slept with his wife. He died in the vault and his ghost reminded bound to the house. He was trapped in there for a century until Sam and Jay found the vault and opened it, freeing him.

However, something terrifying happened to Elias. He was the only ghost in this house that ever ended up sent to Hell . Hetty gave her dead husband a chance to redeem himself from his past sins, and he refused, saying there is no such thing as good and evil. As a result, she told him to "go to Hell" and he did. Humorously, she made the other ghosts think that was her special power after that.

There are also some recurring ghosts on the show, and when it comes to Crash and the answer to what order did the ghosts die in Ghosts , it is hard to tell here. From his look, he appears to be from the 1950s, but he could also be younger and just dressed the part. Crash wears a black leather jacket, white t-shirt, and blue jeans, and looks like a James Dean-styled character, which explains the possible era where he died. It is unknown how Crash died, but he was decapitated, so it is possible he was in a vehicular accident. He only appeared in the pilot and later in the episode "Ghost Father of the Bride" in season 2.

Like Crash, Stephanie is another ghost from Ghosts who only appeared a few times as a recurring specter. She died in the 1980s, and while she was born in the same year as Trevor, she still looks like a teenager since he died a decade later. She was an '80s mean girl who died on Prom Night. Stephanie was the victim of a slasher killer. She and her boyfriend were parking at Woodstone Mansion and were about to hook up when an escaped chainsaw murderer showed up and attacked and killed her. She also has a nickname from the other ghosts, who refer to her as "Attic Girl." She ends up dating one of the Chlorea ghosts.

The Cholera Ghosts

In the original British version of Ghosts , there were ghosts who lived off by themselves in the mansion known as the Plague Ghosts. The U.S. version of the comedy series has a similar group, known collectively as the Cholera Ghosts. As their name mentions, they died of cholera, and they all live in the basement of the mansion. There is no telling how many of them there are, but there are three named on the show (Stuart, Nancy, and Creepy Dirk) and three more named in the credits (Nigel, Catherine, and Cody).

These were all people infected with cholera who were placed in the pest house, where they were supposed to get treated, but were left to die by starvation, illness, or suffocation from living in the basement. While not trapped in the basement as ghosts, that is still where they live as it is where they feel most comfortable. These ghosts died sometime between 1832 and 1870, which puts their deaths between Isaac and Hetty.

The British Ghosts

Finally, the British Ghosts don't live in the house. Instead, they live in a shed on the property based on an agreement made after they died in the Revolutionary War. Since they died then, they know Isaac, but they mostly keep in the shed and to themselves. Every few years, they come back up to the main house to redraw the boundary lines, although some ghosts feel it is because British Ghost Nigel does it to flirt with Isaac. Outside of Nigel, the other two known British Ghosts are Baxter and Jenkins.

Nigel is a lieutenant colonel while Baxter and Jenkins are his two officers. As for how these ghosts died in Ghosts , Nigel's death was a terrible accident. Isaac was admiring Nigel from the telescope on his rifle when he accidentally sneezed, pulled the trigger, and killed Nigel, who was reading a book at the time. Isaac later apologized as a ghost 133 years later, and Nigel accepted the apology. In season 2, the two start a romantic ghostly relationship. As for Baxter and Jenkins, they led the fight against the Americans after Nigel's death and died when their army fell in battle.

'Ghosts' Cast and Character Guide

Meet the characters (living and otherwise) of the hit CBS show!

CBS' Ghosts is an American remake of a popular British sitcom. Much like The Office and Shameless before it, it's become a highly-rated smash hit adored by audiences and critics alike. Joe Port and Joe Wiseman came on board from the original series across the pond to adapt the series for CBS and have served as showrunners of the American series for two seasons thus far. Ghosts follows married couple Samantha ( Rose McIver ) and Jay ( Utkarsh Ambudkar ) as they inherit the Woodstone Estate, a beautiful mansion, from a distant relative of Sam's. Together, they have dreams of renovating an old home into a bed and breakfast, but upon arriving, Samantha discovers that many spirits are haunting the halls, and she's the only one that can interact with them.

If you're curious and want to learn more about the cast behind your favorite group of ghosts, look below to find out who's who in this spooky ensemble.

Rose McIver as Samantha “Sam” Arondekar

Sam Arondekar inherits a mansion from a distant relative, and although she has dreams of turning it into something grand, that bubble pops when she realizes that she can both see and speak to the ghosts in the mansion. She discovers that she has this ability because she once had a near-death experience. With this newfound ability and the support of her husband, Jay, Sam tries to help the ghosts out.

Sam is played by Rose McIver, who you may have previously seen eating brains and solving crimes as Olivia "Liv" Moore on The CW's iZombie , an adaptation of the comic book of the same name. She also had a starring role in Netflix's A Christmas Prince and the subsequent sequels The Royal Wedding and The Royal Baby . Here's what McIver told Collider about Ghosts Season 2 during San Diego Comic-Con 2022 :

“There’s a deepening that has happened between the connections of everybody — between the ghosts within themselves and also the ghosts and the livings, and even Jay to the ghosts. I often say this; even though he doesn’t communicate with them directly, he understands them a lot better than Sam does some of the time. He’s more inclined to believe things. He’s more open-minded in a lot of ways. So I feel like the depth, and we’ve all professed love to each other now, that’s a pretty major way to go — [to Jones] you’ve professed a lot of love, actually. You and [Nigel]. So there’s a lot this season we kind of get to unpack further and further.”

Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay Arondekar

Utkarsh Ambudkar plays the hilarious chef Jay Arondekar, Sam's loving and supportive husband. Unfortunately, he cannot see the ghosts in their new mansion. Initially, the supernatural presence in their house freaks him out, and he doesn't believe Sam until after she has a freak accident and slips into a coma. But slowly, he starts to accept the ghosts and even goes on to play D&D with them.

Ambudkar is known for his film roles in Pitch Perfect , Blindspotting , and Free Guy alongside Ryan Reynolds , Jodie Comer , and Joe Keery . He also has had roles in television shows, including The Mindy Project , White Famous , Never Have I Ever , and The Dropout . He's also shown off his improv skills on Ghosts and continues to be one of the funniest actors to watch on the show. Next up for Ambudkar, he will be starring as King Bumi in the live-action remake of Avatar: The Last Airbender , set to be released on Netflix in 2023 .

Brandon Scott Jones as Captain Isaac Higgintoot

Noticeable to the living as a foul passing order, Captain Isaac Higgintoot is a former American revolution officer who passed away from dysentery two weeks after the siege of Fort Ticonderoga. Unfortunately, his American Revolution legacy was forgotten. But even in this afterlife of relative anonymity, Higgintoot struggles with his closeted sexuality. He didn't come from a time in which he could be openly gay but comes out with the help of his fellow ghost, Hetty.

Played with comedic flair, Brandon Scott Jones brings the prim and proper gentleman ghost to life. Brandon Scott Jones has previously starred in the Rebel Wilson rom-com Isn't It Romantic? . He also co-wrote and starred in another Rebel Wilson film for Netflix, Senior Year . Ghosts was his breakout role, for which he received a Critic's Choice Award nomination. Jones is also set to appear in the vampire horror-comedy Renfield in an as-yet-undisclosed role.

Danielle Pinnock as Alberta Haynes

A former Prohibition-era jazz singer with joie de vivre, Alberta Hynes, uses Sam's help to find out how she really died. Sam does some investigating and discovers that Alberta's death was caused by poisoned moonshine. When she was alive, Alberta played dirty to get to the top and often threw her rivals under the bus, leading her to develop a few enemies. While humming sweet melodies, Alberta can be heard by not only the living but Alexa devices as well. She is played by Danielle Pinnock , who made her television debut in an episode of This Is Us . She went on to star in a multi-episode arc for CBS's Young Sheldon , but Ghosts is by far her most popular role yet. Here's what Pinnock said during an episode of Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party about Alberta's murder and where that arc could go next:

“For the 100 years that she's been there, she's been telling the ghosts that she thinks she's murdered, and they've been gaslighting her the whole time. I mean, Hetty’s like, ‘Sis, you died of a heart attack. Leave it alone.’ And a lot of these ghosts probably were there when it happened, so I’m curious to see, as we get farther along in the episodes, which ghost knows more information than what they're telling.”

Richie Moriarity as Pete Martino

Richie Moriarty plays Pete Martino, a sweet, cheerful, and socially inept Pinecone Trooper leader. He died in 1985 after one of his troops accidentally discharged an arrow and shot him in the neck. He harbors an unrequited crush on songstress Alberta. Moriarty has had appearances in several television shows, including Orange Is The New Black , Search Party , House of Cards , and What We Do In The Shadows . His role in Ghosts marks the first main character he's played in a live-action television show.

Asher Grodman as Trevor Lefkowitz

The youngest of the group of ghosts haunting the mansion, Trevor is a hedonistic, wealthy former Wall Street tycoon who died from an accidental drug overdose. Notably, his dead body was found pantsless. Because of his recent death, Trevor can interact with the living to a limited degree if he concentrates enough.

Like many of his fellow castmates, Ghosts is Asher Grodman 's first series regular role in a television series. Before the show, Grodman had guest-starring roles on HBO's Succession and Netflix's House of Cards . He wrote, directed, and produced the short film The Train (2015), which starred Academy Award winner Eli Wallach in his final performance and was featured in multiple film festivals, including the Vancouver International Film Festival.

Sheila Carrasco as Susan "Flower" Montero

Sheila Carrasco plays Flower, a charming, happy-go-lucky hippie who unfortunately met her end when she tried to befriend a bear while she was under the influence of psychedelics. The bear, sadly, mauled her to death. Passing through her makes the living instantly high. Previously, Carrasco starred in a multi-episode arc on Jane the Virgin and the Snap Original #VanLife .

Devan Chandler Long as Thorfinn

Thorfinn, also referred to as Thor, was a Viking and is the oldest ghost on the estate. Thousands of years ago, he once set out on an expedition to North America. His journey was cut short after he was struck by lightning and abandoned by his crew. He can make lights flicker in the land of the living. His two favorite things to talk about are fighting and seafood.

Devan Chandler Long brings an infectious energy to our favorite Viking. Before his acting career, he almost played in the NFL. An injury dashed his dreams of playing pro football. Since then, he's pivoted to acting to great success, especially with his series-regular role in Ghosts.

Rebecca Wisocky as Hetty Woodstone

As played by Rebecca Wisocky , Hetty Woodstone is the exacting self-proclaimed lady of the house. She's also the original owner of the Woodstone Estate, Sam's great-great-great-great grandmother. When she was alive, Hetty was snooty and frowned upon working-class folk, partially because her husband cheated on her with their maid.

Before Ghosts , Wisocky had a series-regular role on Lifetime's Devious Maids and a recurring role in The Mentalist . Recently, she appeared in Netflix's controversial Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde and David O. Russell 's Amsterdam alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie .

Román Zaragoza as Sasappis/"Sass"

Sass was a member of the Lenape tribe with a penchant for cynicism. The Native American is often left to be the voice of reason among the ghosts, but he secretly enjoys stirring the pot and starting drama. Sam helps him establish a long-distance relationship with his former crush, Shiki ( Crystle Lightning ), a ghost stuck in a magazine office in town. Román Zaragoza previously starred on ABC's Stumptown and Disney Channel's Austin & Ally , but Ghosts ultimately allowed Zaragoza to shine.

Ghosts series 5 cast tease "very meaningful and emotional" final series

The restless spirits and Button House residents return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer to give Ghosts a "proper send off"

Alison and Mike sit in a bed, with the ghosts hovering around them

Ghosts’ stars, writers and creators Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond return with six new episodes of the smash-hit comedy, along with Lolly Adefope, Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe,.

As we begin the series, while Alison and Mike search for new ways to keep Button House going after the gatehouse fire, they receive some unexpected news that will bring about major changes for them and the Ghosts. Elsewhere, the Ghosts investigate the mysterious details of Kitty’s death, Pat is inspired to create some new entertainment for the gang when the Ghosts lose their appetite for Food Club, and after Robin makes an outlandish prediction the Ghosts contemplate their legacies.

Meet the cast of Ghosts series 5

Charlotte ritchie (alison).

Charlotte Richie as Alison

Alison is a lovely character. What are her best qualities, do you think?

Her strengths have always been that she's really resilient and very front-footed. She also seems to make the best of what she's got. I think she really perseveres, and she sticks with things. My only criticism would be that I think sometimes she indulges the ghosts too much!

That would certainly be Mike's criticism as well, wouldn’t it?

Yes. If this was a very gritty drama, their relationship would be really on the rocks. He's unbelievably patient. But she's very kind. She is a lovely character to play.

Do you and Alison have a lot in common?

Yes. I find it actually hard to talk about Alison because in some ways I just feel really similar to her. I don't live with any ghosts or anything like that, but I have a lot in common with her. It feels quite natural. I worked with someone recently, and when their kids met me, they were like, “Oh, she is Alison” - which is a real compliment.

What are the particular similarities between you and Alison?

Our mannerisms. I don't feel like I'm playing a character. I feel like I'm just reacting truthfully a lot of the time. Obviously, it’s exaggerated and I’m pushing it for certain effects, but she feels very human, despite being in a kind of cartoony world. I think that's lovely that they've done that. She’s the straight person or the foil or whatever. But that means she also has emotional beats and real-life stuff to deal with.

What is the arc for Alison in this series?

It’s a pretty big arc. She takes a new step into a different phase of her life with Mike. It’s the end of an era as there's more responsibility involved. When something more serious happens to the two of them, that strangely sheds a light on the life that they've been living with the Ghosts. It slightly exposes how unsustainable it is. They were going from day to day thinking about how to get the next bit of money to continue to live there. Then suddenly that changes and they have to look a lot more long-term for the first time. Playtime is over basically.

Why you think the show has done so well all over the world?

It’s very nicely tailored to everybody's specific history. Also, of course, it's still a comedy, and it’s not trying to be anything more than that. But Ghosts is an antidote to the polarisation of the real world. It’s an example of living alongside people that you don't agree with, and don't necessarily always love having to interact with. That is just how the world is. Unfortunately, it's the case that people really feel differently about things. Ghosts is a nice contained and safe example; no one has anything to lose by watching it. But you just see this nice little metaphor for different people living amongst each other and learning from each other.

Can you give us an example?

Lady Button living with Alison. They couldn't be more different, but there is such a tenderness in the way that Lady Button comes round and loves Alison, despite the fact that she represents everything that Lady Button thinks is awful. It's just nice. They have all sorts of clashes, but they have to get on with it. They have no choice. There is no exit route. They have to sit and talk. I think it's very cool. That must be good for lots of different cultures to explore.

How did you react to the end of Ghosts?

Basically, I was really emotional for the whole three weeks leading up to the end. It wasn't really the last day that did it to me – by then I think I’d pre-grieved! I think that phrase is from Succession, but I’m sure I coined it first! In some ways, it’s cathartic to say, “OK, that's it. That’s the end of the chapter.” Strangely, you get used to that in this job. There are so many goodbyes that we have to see them as a good thing because otherwise, it's just too sad all the time.

Do you think it was the right moment to end it?

Yes, I do. I think the writers are really smart. They knew that it was the right choice. I think we just were just getting to the point where everyone was very comfy in their parts, and it was just the right point to finish. A lot of the feedback I've got from people has been that they think it's cool to quit while you're ahead.

Why do you think the writers work so well together?

Because they have very similar senses of humour, but also different leanings. I don't think they're egotistical people. They are real team players, and that really shines through. That means everyone gets their moment and they can compromise and collaborate. I'm always impressed by that. They are such good friends, I think that's a big part of it. They have such respect for each other.

Will you miss the team?

Absolutely. We’ve got such a strong bond. Actually, I really love them. They're great. They've become such close and good friends. It’s a very unusual thing to get on with everyone for that long. They’re so generous and funny and kind. When you spend enough time doing a job like that, it just sets the bar for what you want to establish on other jobs and what to expect. They set a great example. It’s been such a pleasure.

Kiell Smith-Bynoe (Mike)

Kiell Smyth-Bynoe as Mike

What journey do Mike and Alison go on in this final season?

They are still having money problems. They're still trying to find a way to be able to maintain this big old house, and Mike is constantly coming up with new ideas. But they're also thinking about their life and their future a bit more. They are wondering if Button House is right for them, and if all the hard work that they're doing is worth it. But by the end of episode three into four, Mike is fully on board with the fact that this is just how it is. This is how his life will be with his wife and the guys he can't see. He is just going to crack on with it. He's done trying to see what she sees or trying to imagine what it's like; it's just a way of life now. The main development is that they are thinking more about their life choices and what their future looks like.

Is it difficult not to react when you are in a scene with the ghosts?

Yes. it is hard. I do forget every time we go back in January. On that first day, when one of the ghosts says something and I react, I think, “No, no, no, no. Can't do that”. It’s hard, not just physically, but also because these are some of the funniest comedy performers in the UK. They are constantly trying to make each other laugh because they know that if they can make each other laugh, they will make an audience laugh. So, they are constantly trying to find the funniest thing, and it's ridiculous. But it's a lot of fun.

Is it sometimes a problem keeping a straight face, then?

Definitely, especially if you’re in a scene with Jim Howick. Then, not to laugh is a challenge in and of itself. Sometimes it can just be a noise Jim makes. There is an outtake from series three or four where Pat hears something he’s shocked by. He does a little shuffle. It's just the sound of his feet on the gravel. He knows it’s funny, but his face stays completely straight as he's doing it. It's a real talent. It's a God-given gift, Jim’s ability to make everything funny.

Is there good chemistry between the cast?

Definitely. We are not always all in together. So, there might be some days where we're missing a few, but the green room is constantly buzzing. No matter who's in there, whether it's three of us or all nine, it's constantly busy and chatty. There are so many anecdotes and stories. It's really fun. Those guys were already close because they had been working together for 12 years. It's really a great group to be around.

Were you very sad on the last day of filming?

I was actually and I didn't think I would be. But it was really emotional, realising that it would be our last lunch on the set of Ghosts, or it would be our last breakfast or coffee. Just because it's so busy on set, you don't really stop to think about those things until someone says it. And also, it has been our workplace for five years. For the last three series, we've always done it in January. It’s really nice as an actor, of course, to have that stability, to know that you're starting the year with a big show with people that you still like and it's going to be a lot of fun.

Do you think this is the correct moment to bring the curtain down on Ghosts?

I could have done another series! No, I think it's good to be able to end on a high and on your own terms, rather than have the channel say, “We are not going to bring it back.” It's also great to be able to write an ending, so that you feel the story is finished, rather than saying, “Oh, well, what would have happened next?” It's really good to do it at that point. But also, I feel like five series is a blessing. It's not often you get to the fifth series in a British sitcom. We only got three with Stath Lets Flats. It's really nice to have that many episodes and have those many stories told and get to be as silly as we did for that long. Despite it being the final one, I think this series has some of the best episodes that we've made. I think it's really consistently got better.

The ending promises to be emotional, doesn’t it?

Yes. I think it’s great. What the writers have done is really amazing. I did ask to watch the last few minutes of the final episode, and that didn't help my emotions! It’s really brilliant.

How do you think people will respond to the final episode?

From beginning to end, I think it's made people laugh as well as maybe cry. It's also brought families closer together. I get stopped on the street by fans of Ghosts who are always telling me that it's the only thing that their kids will sit down and watch with them. Usually, teenagers are in their rooms, or younger children are playing computer games, and everyone is doing things separately. But Ghosts can bring everyone together. For that reason, I really hope that people will say that it's one of the best sitcoms they’ve seen.

Lolly Adefope (Kitty)

Lolly Adefope as Kitty in Ghosts

Why are viewers so fond of Kitty?

I guess she's the baby of the group, and people feel quite protective of her, especially considering that she had didn't have the easiest time when she was alive. Despite that, she is this constant source of positivity. She has her tantrums and cries a lot as well, but she tends to be the optimist. She is always positive, and that's a very good quality. Especially around a load of cynical old fogies, you're going to need her buoyancy. Kids relate to Kitty the most, which is very nice to hear.

How would you characterise Kitty’s relationship with Alison?

In the beginning, Kitty is a bit of a stalker, and then it develops into something quite sweet. I think Kitty has just been looking for a best friend and doesn't really have anyone close to her age in the house. So she sees Alison as the answer to all of her problems, but goes about it in quite an intense way but in the end Alison does start to love her back.

Why do you think audiences adore Ghosts so much?

The thing I get told most often is that it's the only thing that parents watch with their kids. The whole family watches together. It’s got something for everyone. Also, I think during the pandemic it was quite a positive show for a lot of people and a nice distraction. It’s got comedy, it can be emotional and at times it can be sad. It deals with a topic, death, that we don't really talk about that much, while balancing that with comedy. There hadn't been anything like it in a while. It’s uplifting and emotional in all the right places.

It’s a great ensemble of very watchable, very funny characters. It’s just such a great premise as well. The fact that Alison is able to see the ghosts when nobody else can is brilliant. There is also always one character that every viewer relates to. Everyone has their favourite.

Pathos is also a key part of it, isn't it?

Yes. It doesn't shy away from the theme of death, which I think most comedies probably do. But it still has a lot of characters with a great deal of heart, and so never feels like a heavy-handed tragedy. It brings in those topics in a way that makes them fun to explore.

Were a lot of tears shed on the last day of filming?

I definitely cried. There were a lot of tears from all the cast and crew. I can’t remember the last thing I did for five years. School was probably the last thing I did consistently for five years.

Why do you think that last day provoked so many emotions within you?

Because the show has been so well received. It's so rewarding and exciting to do a show that so many people love. I also think you form such a strong bond with so many people - obviously, with the cast, but also with the crew, a number of whom have been there since series one. It's just such a wonderful process. Everyone is just trying to make everyone else laugh all day long. It is just like a family. This is something that you do every day for months on end. It just becomes part of your everyday life, really. So, it did feel like it was going to be a big shift not doing it anymore.

Was it the appropriate moment to end the show?

Yes. Five is a great round number, and you never want to push something past its limits. Ghosts is so well loved, and you want to give it a proper send off. You have to make sure it finishes on the right note, rather than peters out to the point where people want it to end.

How do you hope viewers will react to the conclusion of Ghosts?

I hope that they'll find the ending very meaningful and emotional and a suitable end to five series of a show that they've loved. Even if people didn't want it to end, hopefully they'll see the ending as a fitting tribute to the ethos of the show.

The writing team have been together for a long time. What makes their work so special?

They put so much heart into it. They have all got families of their own as well, and I think they make something that they would want to watch with their families. Interestingly, even though it is a group of six writing together, it never really feels like too many cooks. It just feels like they've just got so many amazing ideas. They also act as well as write, which I think helps because they know how to write for themselves, and they know how to write for other performers as well. It's not just the writers hoping that an actor will make their words come to life. As a writer-performers, they know exactly how a character should be, which I think makes the characters really well drawn.

Can you expand on that?

They have nailed their tone, which is a great blend of comedy and tragedy. They create such a wide breadth of characters as well, which means that it's always fun to watch and that you're never bored. There's always something going on because they just so much put into it and there’s so much talent involved.

Mathew Baynton (Thomas)

Mathew Baynton as Thomas in Ghosts

Where do we find the characters at the beginning of this season?

It picks up from where we left off the end of the last series. Alison and Mike had decided to make the gate house into a B&B. It was going to be not quite the full dream of a hotel, but something that they could afford to do which would be a stepping-stone towards their ideal of making a living through the house. And then the place burned down. They realised that in the process of trying to make it successful, they had put a lot of strain on themselves and their relationship, and it wasn't a joyful thing anymore.

So where do Alison and Mike go from here?

They’re back to square one, but in some ways a little worse off because they don't even have that dream anymore. So now they're in a desperate scramble to figure out how to make ends meet and how to find a livelihood that allows them to stay in this place. That's been the backbone of every series; they pivot and find a new plan. But this season feels higher-stakes because they're not on Plan A now; they're on Plan J.

Why do you think the show has chimed with viewers all over the world?

It’s not by design necessarily because really this show was conceived out of a desire for us all to work together. So, we created something where we could all raid the dressing-up box. But we realised early on that we had hit on something. There is something quite rich about the idea of people with very different lives and very different viewpoints being stuck together. That felt very contemporary in terms of how heated conversations are between people with different standpoints. If people inhabit a space together, and look in each other's eyes, they can try their best to maintain a hardness towards each other, but some of that softens and breaks down because we're all people in the end. I think that's a hopeful message.

You have had huge success as a group of writer-performers. Have you got plans to do something else together now?

No, not specifically, but there’s absolutely no way that we won't work together again. We've just been working very hard on the Ghosts companion book, which we're very excited about. So that's been really fun. It's exciting to think about getting back in a room together, talking, making each other laugh and coming up with ideas about what we might do next.

Why did you decide to end Ghosts now?

It’s best to go out at the top while people are still saying, “It's great”, rather than, “It's not as good as it used to be,” which can happen with some shows. The way I see it, we're a band who have made this very successful album. I want the last series to be as good as it's ever been. I want people to miss it and us, and therefore be excited when we come back with something new.

If you take the easy route of just continuing with a show that people are willing to pay you to keep making and you've got very comfortable writing and performing it, you can go on. We could probably have gone for seven, nine, eleven, however many more series. But by the time you stop, people haven't even noticed that you've stopped because you've just become part of the furniture at that point. It's only when you're suddenly there in that final week or two you start thinking, “Oh, my God, what have we done?”

Did the emotion of it all really hit you on the final day of filming?

Absolutely. On the last day, the emotion took me by surprise. I thought, “Hang on, we’ve just got to the end.” I just suddenly found my shoulders going. I felt like if I let myself, I could have really sobbed and sobbed, but I took a deep breath and carried on. If we didn't care that much, there's no way in hell we could have written something an audience cares about.

Can you amplify that?

It was truly emotional. I've never played a single character for that long or written a group of characters for that long. You become so attached emotionally to these imaginary people, but also to the real people who are the cast and crew around you. You’re thinking, “This has been this has been a privilege and a joy.” I’ll carry those joyful memories with me for the rest of my life.

What do you hope people will be saying to each other at the close of this series?

I hope they'll be saying, “I'll miss them.” Unlike almost any other episode, people have all dreamt or speculated about how it might end. So, you hope you're measuring up against people's fantasies about how it might finish. And you're also hoping that you deliver something that surprises and satisfies and gives them more than they imagined. I really hope people don't feel let down by it. I think I'm really proud of it. In fact, I am really proud of it, so I’ll remove the words “I think” from that sentence. I hope the audience love it as much as we do.

Simon Farnaby (Julian)

Simon Farnaby as Julian in Ghosts

What will you miss about Ghosts?

The laughter. We spent a lot of our time just goofing around. We probably had about 150,000 in-jokes that have been gathered from the beginning of our time together!

Will you also miss Julian?

I suppose he’s with me all the time, but yes, I will. He is so naughty and says such despicable things, which is quite good fun to play.

Do you think audiences have warmed to Julian over the years?

Yes. We got to know that he had a daughter. It was reset back to normal after that, but we always have that knowledge. That’s true with everyone. I was watching The Traitors with my daughter and she was saying, “I hate this person and all the things they say and do!” And then within two or three episodes, she was saying, “I really love that person.” When you get to know someone, you understand what makes them the way they are. I made that point to her. “It’s funny, you hated that person about a week ago and now you don’t want them to leave.”

There is a surface to everyone, and then there’s what’s underneath. Once you learn more about that, you understand why they are how they are. The more we learned about Julian’s daughter, the more we sympathised with him. You saw the vulnerability, although as he was a politician, you knew that the things he said and the things he really felt were quite different.

How did you find it wearing Julian’s trouser-less costume?

I quite liked it, although we did film in the winter and outside at night, and it was so cold. I’d always be standing there in my bare legs freezing. I had some pyjama bottoms that could go on between takes. But by the time you put them on, it was always time to take them off again. Jim had it too because he was wearing shorts. But he’s got shorter legs than me, so he had less surface area to get cold!

Why do think Ghosts has delighted audiences right around the world?

Maybe because it’s about death. It’s quite a strange concept to have a show where the lead characters are dead, something we slightly fear. I know a lot of other countries have plans to remake it. It works because everywhere has got a history. A country like France or Spain has a rich history, so they have a lot of different characters to choose from; you can choose a conquistador or someone from the Spanish Inquisition or someone from the French Revolution. You can pick individuals from each country’s history, it’s quite an unusual setup.

Does the show also work so well because the characters cannot escape each other?

Even though they’re dead, they behave like normal people trapped together in a flat share or a prison. I don’t think there are many prison sitcoms, there’s Porridge and that’s about it!

It’s a very bold comedy because it’s not scared of featuring pathos, is it?

That’s right. Right from the off, we wanted it to be funny, but we also knew that we had an emotional palette to play with by exploring their deaths. Everyone had a story about their death and how they felt about it. We knew that was going to be a big part of it and it really worked for us. It was the gift that kept on giving!

Why do you six writers have such great chemistry, do you think?

We have a shared sense of humour and a great knowledge of each other. When we all met doing Horrible Histories, it was great, but it was quite a tough job for very little money. So, we have a slight feeling of “We were in the trenches together.” We were literally in the trenches together doing First World War scenes. Not that I want to equate doing comedy with being in a war! But we were literally in the trenches together. So, we have that background, the shared experience of being in that crazy job together as well. That’s where we get a lot of our in jokes from. 75,000 of our in jokes come from there!

Can you conjure up your feelings on the last day on set?

I think I welled up rather than actually crying! We were all proud of what we’ve achieved. If you had told us at the beginning that we would have got five series and three Christmas specials, we’d have been delighted. We would have taken that. I think we achieved what we set out to do, which was to make a series that appealed across the generations. Kids felt it was a show for grown-ups that they were allowed to watch, which is what I used to like doing as a child with Last of the Summer Wine.

Do you think it was correct to bring the series to a close now?

Yes. It’s sad, but it was the right time to end it. We didn't want people to say, “Oh, it's not as good as it used to be.” You always want to leave them wanting more. I don’t think the sixth series of anything is the best. All the good ones end before then, except perhaps Seinfeld. But that’s quite rare. I think it’s the right decision artistically to finish now. Ghosts can’t age. Also, we never wanted to be Last of the Summer Wine which did 32 series.

So you don’t want to be pushed down the hill in a bath tub by Jim and Mat?

Well, I would, but only in my private life. We do do that sort of thing.

Martha Howe-Douglas (Lady Button)

Martha Howe-Douglas as Lady Button

Do you enjoy playing Lady Button?

Absolutely. I love her. I'm going to miss her so much. It's ridiculous. I love playing her so much because she's just so extreme. People find her funny, too. Mostly, the feedback I get is about her faces. I get a lot of people sending me pictures of them bending their faces. And I get a lot of catchphrases – like “Off the lawn!” – on Instagram.

Audiences have warmed to Lady Button over the years, haven’t they?

Yes. I don't think she was pick of the day at the beginning, she wasn’t loved at all. But I think people are softening to her now. That started when they saw her younger self in the Christmas special. There's always a reason why people are the way they are. There’s that saying: be kind to people because you don't know what their struggle is. Lady Button’s rambunctiousness comes from being stifled in the past. I think people now have understood that she is a complete caricature but it's just fun, it's a comedy. It took time for people to grow to love her but yes, she's quite loved now.

Why else have viewers come to love her?

They have seen there is a vein of pathos in there as well. It's easy to be one-dimensional. When you're the bossy chops of the group, it's easy to just be that. But I think the softening of her relationship with Alison has helped that journey as well. When we've been writing, we have discovered new relationships, and I think there's been quite a nice relationship developing between her and the Captain. When you split the characters from each other, you get to discover a bit more about each one. That’s important with Lady Button because it's easy to just go, “Oh God, I wish she'd shut up.” But actually, she's got quite a lot to say, and deep down she has a heart and empathy. It’s been a really nice thing to discover those moments.

Were there many tears on the final day of shooting?

Absolutely. I was in bits! I was the worst, definitely. I'm sure of it. Charlotte was pretty bad. Lolly cried. Mat cried. I had to be taken to the makeup bus because I had ruined all Lady Button’s prosthetics! The makeup artists were like, “No, she does not look like that. Sort her out, for God's sake!” I just couldn't stop crying. It was crazy.

Why do you think you got so emotional?

I think it's such a special show and it’s such a special place to film. On any normal series, you're going to be going to different locations, but we went back to that exact same place every single year. And it's got such happy memories because it's a happy set. The crew are lovely - we get the same people back year after year. It's become a real family. So, there's a lot of love there. And I love the house, we've had such a special journey in it.

What else tugged on your heartstrings?

The six of us have grown up together. It's nearly 15 years now that we've worked together, and looking at them, I was just thinking about all the things that we've done together. I thought, “Here's another thing that's ending.” Of course, we will go on. We are already talking about what the next thing will be so we're not ending our journey here, but it felt like the end of another chapter. And we are all getting older; Ben and Simon both turned 50 when we were filming, and it's that thing of, “God, we were in our 20s and 30s when we met, and now suddenly some of us are in our 50s!” But there is such a lot of love between us.

Is it the right moment to bring Ghosts to a close?

It was a really hard decision. It was certainly not taken lightly, and it was questioned quite a bit during the filming. We were like, “Oh my God, are we really doing this?” It wasn't an easy decision, but I think it's the right one. When we decided to end Yonderland, we were running out of stories. When you start to run out of stories, you don't want it to ebb away; you want it to go out with a bang. So that was the decision that we came to: we should be giving it the finish that it deserves rather than milking it for all it's worth. I hope that we have done that for the fans, and that it's a lovely finish for everyone.

Do you get a lot of feedback from fans?

Yes. We get lots of letters. It’s fantastic that the fan base is so huge and so rich. They come back year after year to the annual premiere at the BFI and at Comic Con, and they just love it. It’s crazy when you step back from it and go, “Wow, that's something that we created, and people have taken it into their hearts so much.” That’s a lovely feeling.

Does it feel great to be going out of the top?

Definitely. We’ve been so lucky to have such a loved show because obviously, we love making it but people have absolutely embraced it. That such a lovely thing in this day and age where people are so quick to criticise. Social media can be quite vicious but it’s so rare that we get any negative feedback and that's just unheard of really. The show may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's been so embraced by the nation, and for that we couldn't be happier.

Jim Howick (Pat)

Jim Howick as Pat in Ghosts

Why do you think you six work so well together as a group?

I just think there's a general understanding between us. There's a trust and a faith, and we still make each other laugh outside of working hours. We get a kick out of making each other laugh, and there’s still a real joy to that. We are our first audience. What works in the room often goes on to the page, and more often than not stays on the page, and so the jokes and the laughs really are from us as a group. There's a genuine love as well – there is a love affair between us. It’s also probably healthy that we take a bit of time off and concentrate on other things from time to time. We've all got individual jobs and things going on. It's nice to honour those and to take a breather, but I'm sure we'll be very excited to be back in the room together at some point.

Why does Ghosts connect with audiences in so many different countries?

I think it's simply that audiences enjoy watching a gang of people with differing opinions. Viewers can relate to that. Everyone has a family or a friendship group that they perhaps squabble with from time to time. I think the Ghosts represent that. They all have differing values and principles, and so they can learn from one another. It’s a model that works because it's essentially a family unit. Also, different countries can buy into their own history or their own culture.

What do you think people’s response will be to the final episode?

I think there’ll be some sadness about the show ending and we're pleased about that, to be honest, because I'd much rather that than people turning off already, pleased that it's over. I think that is a good sign that people will be sad. I just hope that people think the show has been fulfilling.

Tell us the thinking behind ending it now then.

We all agreed that with anything that goes beyond five series, there's a real danger that it might outstay its welcome. We wanted to be ahead of the curve as far as any kind of waning is concerned. That would show. Not many sitcoms can survive more than five series at a particular level. When you get into a writers’ room, I think it's very obvious when ideas start to thin out or you start to recycle old stories with new characters. We haven't done any of that. Every single story is original.

Have fans of the show begged you to change your minds?

Yes. So many people have said to us that we should keep going and that there's so much more to find out about these characters. But the truth is, it's very hard to bring that into play when you've got nothing that can affect the practical stakes. You're dealing with seven supernatural characters that can't be late for anything. They're not in any relationship. They can't be fired at all. None of the usual sitcom stakes apply to this show. So, you're dealing with emotional stakes more than anything else. It’s not that tricky to come up with an idea for a ghost – Pat’s got the hump because of this. But finding practical resolution to these stories is hard. And so we decided as a group that it's probably best to quit while we're ahead, to go out on a high and to varnish the legacy that we've created. In many ways, it feels like total madness and a very silly decision indeed. But I think it's right for us as a group. It’s good for our stock as a creative engine. It’s the right thing to do.

The fans of Ghosts are passionate about the show. Have you seen any striking examples of that?

Yes. I've seen people with tattoos of Pat. It’s quite overwhelming to see yourself inscribed onto someone's flesh. We've come up with this character, and he is quite like me. And there's someone who's committed him to their body forever, unless they go off the show massively and get some sort of laser treatment. That would be a strong reaction to the last episode - to have that tattoo of Pat lasered off in protest. That would be the final irony.

Laurence Rickard (Robin/Humphrey)

Laurence Rickard as Robin the Caveman and Humphrey’s Head in Ghosts

Why do you think Ghosts has been so popular?

I think there's a slight sense in the tone of what we always do. Mat puts this really well; there's a feeling that we're pulling down our beards, winking at people and going, “Look, it’s us!” You get a sense of the amount of fun that we're having doing it. That always comes across.

It’s quite difficult sometimes to get high-concept comedies away. This was a pitch for an idea, we were like, “This sounds a bit ridiculous, but there are going to be two lead characters and only one of them can see the ghosts.” Even though it's quite an unusual setup, it's got that classic sitcom shape of really different people who are unable to escape each other. That’s distilled down in Ghosts. I think people really responded to that.

Why else are viewers drawn to this show?

I think there's a warmth in all the characters, even the characters where we didn't expect to find any. Obviously, from day one everyone loved Pat because he’s the nicest ever human being. But as the series went on, audiences found real humanity in the Captain and Lady Button. The warmth towards them grew and grew.

What is the secret to the relationship between you six writer-performers?

We’re all very un-alike as people. Six more un-alike people you couldn’t hope to find. But we all get on really well. We've all got a very similar sense of humour. That’s always been the case from early in Horrible Histories. When we were in a green room together or sitting at a table at lunchtime, we'd all be laughing. When you have any job where you have a nice working environment and fun colleagues, you go, “Oh, I’ll stay here.” Really early on, we realised that Horrible Histories couldn’t go on forever and that we should try to do something else together. We have been really lucky. We've been able to do three different series and a film together. We’ve done something together every year for 15 years. And the hope is to go on and do something else together now.

How do you find the business of putting on Robin’s makeup?

Actually, I quite enjoy the process. I have a two-hour call for makeup and Martha has an hour-and-a-half call. So, we are makeup buddies. Just as we're finishing, the others turn up and comb their moustaches and put some wax in their hair. There’s something nice in always trying to perfect it all and finding little, tiny tweaks and improvements. At the start it took almost three and a half hours, but by the end we had we got it down to just under two hours. So, we refined the process. The makeup people are just phenomenal. They are always there before I am and they're still there when I leave – and my day’s long enough!

The show is able to address some quite serious subjects, isn’t it?

Yes. It’s an interesting way of dealing with our country’s history – even sometimes the difficult bits of history. Through the series, there's been a little bit about what it is to be British and colonialism and same-sex marriage. You get to lightly touch deeper issues as well because it's disguised amongst a lot of silliness. It’s like a Trojan horse.

Were you all overcome with emotion shooting the final scenes of Ghosts?

Oh, my goodness. I think throughout the final week, we all had tiny breakdowns. Obviously, we'd known it was coming for a long while. In the process of writing series four, we started to talk about maybe just doing one more so we had a long run into it. But yes, I think we were all taken by surprise by how emotional it was. The last scene we shot was the last scene of the series so it really tugged on the heartstrings. There were a lot of tears, but it was happy and sad. It was sad to say goodbye to something which has been so much fun. But at the same time, it's just been such an incredible thing to have done. Going into it, none of us had any idea that it would go on to become what it has.

What do you hope that people are saying to each other at the end of the series?

In the nicest possible way, I hope they're going, “No! Why have they finished it?” because that’s what we keep saying – “Why have we done this?” I hope they feel that it's a rewarding tying up. We tried not to do what's expected. We wanted it to finish in a way that felt satisfying for the viewer, but also for the Ghosts, too. We wanted viewers to feel that all’s well with the characters, and we didn't want to do it in a trite way. We didn't want to do the obvious. We always get people pitching to us – “You know what you should do?” The number of people who've gone, “Mike should see the Ghosts, too.” You think you want that. It sounds fun, but what that actually does is fundamentally change the shape of the show and probably kill it. We tried to make a satisfying finale, but not do the expected.

Have you bumped into a lot of the show’s very devoted fans?

Yes. I met someone the other day who was showing me the tattoo on the back of her calf of Humphrey’s head. I was like, “Wow!” Then she went, “Look at the other leg” and pulled her trousers up on the other leg to reveal Humphrey’s headless body. That was amazing. But also, I thought, “Oh my God, what have you done?” Recently, we went to the London Comic Con, and hundreds of people there were all dressed up as the ghosts. In television, obviously, you very rarely get to meet your audience so it was really lovely to see just how much people had taken this show to their hearts.

Ben Willbond (The Captain)

Ben Willbond as The Captain in Ghosts

Do you think that audiences have softened towards the Captain over the years?

Absolutely. I've always written characters where I try create as much empathy as possible. That's the key to writing drama or comedy. The audience have to feel they know these people. Over the years, it just felt natural to do more of that. I don’t think of the comedy first, I think of the character first. You allow them to show their vulnerability and their humanity. If you’re watching something like Succession, at first you think, “I don’t like any of these people.” But you actually start to empathise with them because they are human. You empathise with their heartbreak and their humanity. Even though their attitude is very far away from yours, you're still drawn in on a human level. That’s very important in storytelling.

Can you tell us more?

That is why the audience have that perception of getting to know a character better every week because you’re stripping away layers each time. That particularly applies to the Captain because the more the audience have got to know him over the course of five seasons, the more they have softened towards him. The first question when you’re setting out on a BBC comedy is, “Is this funny?” And then, as the story progresses, you go into the characters’ lives, peel back layers and reveal their personalities. I've always felt it's very funny to watch very buttoned-up people. You think, “You were a child once, and there’s still a child in there, someone who wants to be loved.” That creates a beautiful comic tension.

Why do you think Ghosts has done so well all over the world?

Because it feels like a family. I was watching some of the early episodes of Modern Family recently, and the way they constructed them was so brilliant. Every character has a story, whether it’s emotional or practical. In the really good episodes, they're both practical and emotional. You get this bonding feeling, and it's multigenerational - I think Ghosts has the same effect.

Can you think of other examples from sitcom history?

I always go back to Captain Mainwaring from Dad’s Army. He is always trying to keep up this buttoned-up facade of “I’m a bank manager and I’m your Captain and I’m in charge, so will you all just behave?” He’s got absolutely no authority whatsoever, but he is actually this very gentle human being underneath. And of course, another captain.

How did you all respond at the end of the shoot of this final series?

Tears were shed. When we started shooting the last series, we thought, “Oh, we have got loads of time”, but of course filming goes in the blink of an eye. There’s nothing you can do about it. You come to the end and you think, “Oh no, have we done the right thing?”

Yes. It was time. We all had a mutual agreement and understanding that if we carried on much longer, it would have just started to drift and we would have begun to lose the tightness in the stories. It is at those moments that you go, “We should have ended when we were on top”. So, it's the right decision.

But it was still tough?

Yes, it was really hard because the prospect is that you might not have this ever again; this might be it. And that's fine. But it's quite a lot to deal with in the moment.

It was hugely difficult. It took me a long time to recover. I was all over the place for a couple of months. Ghosts had been seven years in the making. We started to get together to pitch it, and suddenly we were on a roll, and then you blink and it’s over. I remember saying during the first season, “If we get five series, I'll be 50 by then.” And I had my 50th birthday on set during the last series. I just had that moment where I thought, “Oh my God, it’s actually happened!”

Do a lot of people come up to you and say how much they love the series, then?

Very much so. People will expand on that; they won’t just tell you a story. That's when you know that you've connected. For instance, after the episode where Mary got sucked off in the last series, we had a lot of letters from people, which was really moving. They said, “I lost someone this year, and I loved your episode.” To have given people comfort and made them feel like they’re not alone was amazing. The episode was touching on grief and loss. So, to have those people come and tell you that was really special. And then suddenly you think, “Well, hang on. We are supposed to be writing a comedy here!” I'm absolutely cool with that. For me, that is almost more important. Because one thing it told me is how you connect with the audience and how you tell the story. Once you've tasted that, you don't want to let that magic go because that's what storytelling is – it’s connecting properly with an audience.

That must be so gratifying.

Definitely. To have co-created something which people respond to in that way is just such a reward. It's everything. You think, “That's it. That's job done.” It’s an endless source of happiness.

CBS's Ghosts season 3: release date and everything we know about the comedy

The ghosts of Woodstone Mansion are back for another season.

Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Devan Chandler Long, Sheila Carrasco, Richie Moriarty and Roman Zaragoza in Ghosts

CBS apparently loves being haunted by the hilarious spirits on Ghosts , as the network is bringing back the comedy for another season. Ghosts season 3 is a fixture of the CBS lineup alongside other comedies Young Sheldon , The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola on the network.

Ghosts , which is adapted from the BBC series of the same name (indeed Ghosts UK is coming to CBS in November), was one of the top four comedies on US TV during the 2022-2023 season, per CBS. Fans have certainly come to love the show's cast of characters, including Sam, Jay, Isaac, Alberta, Pete, Trevor, Flower, Hetty, Thorfinn and Sasappis. Though with a cliffhanger ending to Ghosts season 2 , many may be wondering what lies in store for season 3?

We'll have to wait until the series premieres to know for sure what happens next, but here is what we do know about Ghosts season 3 right now.

Ghosts season 3 release date

Now that the writers and actors' strike are over, Ghosts season 3 is officially on its way, with the comedy series set to return to CBS on Thursday, February 15, at 8:30 pm ET/PT. 

The show once again shares the Thursday night spotlight on CBS with Young Sheldon season 7 , while the rest of the night features So Help Me Todd season 2 and eventually the new series Elsbeth . 

In the meantime, the UK's Ghosts , which was the inspiration for the CBS sitcom, is going to make its US debut November 16 on CBS.

Ghosts season 3 plot

An official plot for Ghosts season 3 is not available, but the ending of Ghosts season 2 is going to have a major impact on what happens next for the comedy.

In the final moments of season 2, Sam and Jay notice a light from the house that means that one of the ghosts has been "sucked off," or has moved on into the next life. However, it is not shown who it is (Jay hopes it's Trevor). 

Which ghost has moved on and what that'll mean for the rest of the characters is going to be a big thing for next season.

Ghosts season 3 cast

We don't know yet who got "sucked off," so it's hard to be sure who all in the Ghosts cast is definitely returning for season 3 until CBS sheds some light on that. Though we can be pretty confident that Sam McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar are returning as Sam and Jay, given as living people, they aren't moving on to the next life.

As for the ghosts, they are played by Brandon Scott Jones (Isaac), Richie Moriarty (Pete), Danielle Pinnock (Alberta), Asher Grodman (Trevor), Sheila Carrasco (Flower), Rebecca Wisocky (Hetty), Roman Zaragoza (Sasappis), Devan Chandler Long (Thorfinn) and John Hartman (Nigel). Of those actors, only Hartman is not a series regular, which may mean that he is the most likely candidate to exit the show.

Ghosts season 3 trailer

No trailer for Ghosts season 3 has been released yet. We'll update this page when one is available.

Biography [ ]

History [ ].

She had three brothers growing up and was on her high school basketball team in the episode Ghostwriter . At one game, she had 20 points in the first half, but then didn't score any after that cause I got super high at halftime with our point guard." She fouled out of every game because she can be very aggressive and has sharp elbows.

Her oldest brother whom she called Robby fought in the Vietnam War and she believed that he was dead due to thinking the acronym MIA meant "Murdered In Action". She expressed remorse about their last encounter since she choose the cult over her actual family, Jay's Friends . Flower says that he showed up, and he tried to get her to come home. So the cult banned him from the property and barred Flower from ever speaking to him again.

By her own confession, she has been part of several communes and cults in her lifetime and has enjoyed experimenting with recreational substances, such as weed and cocaine. To the other ghosts, she has explained the main differences between the two was that the commune still let her wear shoes and contact her family, which the cult did not. [1] In both communities, she was married and in a "throuple" (a romantic relationship between three people). [2]

Once, she took acid to save the snow leopards as a protest in The Tree . She was always finding ways to protest and save the environment. She also supports women owning businesses. Flower also talks about she protested the war in Vietnam.

In 1968, while a part of the commune, Flower took part in a bank robbery with the objective of giving the stolen money to the poor. Afterward, they made her take an "eternal blood oath" to never talk about it, although she's repeatedly shared the story with her fellow ghosts since her death. [1]

She mentions she used to be whippets from a Danish guy at Dead shows. She also mentions that she's never been to Denmark in The Baby Bjorn and met David Crosby.

She dated a man named Michael while she was in law school. On her last one-on-one date with him he was in the hospital dying. They were planning on getting married once they graduated. Flower mentions that she had a fear of someone else leaving her, which is why she's been apart of throples as mentioned in A Date To Remember . She mentions since then she's been on a dates with multiple people at a time including as many people you can fit into a VW bus.

Flower thinks that more drugs is usually the answer. She was a muse for David Crosby and his back hair looked like a sweater vest in Weekend From Hell . She also notes vitamin C enhances the effects of when someone walks through her.

In the cult her thing was interpreting dreams and tracking down runners as noted in The Christmas Spirit .

Not long after the bank robbery, while at a music festival, Flower (while under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms and therefore high) and a boyfriend wandered through a forest and ended up on the grounds of Woodstone Mansion , where they came across a bear. As it raised its arms to attack, as Flower was high she thought it just wanted a "bear hug." Instead, it slashed and killed her. [3]

In Possession , Flower reveals her ghost ability is to leave the people she passes through with a discombobulated state or "acid trip," similar to her personal recurring flashbacks. She can even suggest things like wall paper and coloring books that distract her to further distract her victims. This condition only seems to last an hour.

Appearance [ ]

Flower has long dark brown hair, generally a bit wild and not brushed. She wears rose-tinted glasses with oversized round frames, a blue necklace, a red ring on her left middle finger and turquoise ring on her right index finger, dangling silver earrings, and several bracelets on her left wrist made of various beads, fabric, &c. Her skirt is long and full-bodied, the fabric patchwork from many colorful and patterned fabrics. Her top is a crocheted tank-top with a blue flower or sunburst shape on the chest. Her shoes are brown Birkenstock-style sandals. She sports unshaven armpits, a coral pink lipstick, and is usually smiling crookedly with a spaced-out look on her face.

Her death is visible on her body in the form of bloody bear claw marks on her back and right shoulder. She has blood under her right jaw and on her fingernails, and her upper arms are smudged with dirt.

Personality [ ]

Flower was a member of the counter-culture revolution of the 1960s, typically identified as a "hippie" or "Flower child." In D&D she says that she is a pacifist. She died trying to hug a bear while high on acid, so she remains forgetful and in a sort of drugged-out bliss in her afterlife.

  • "Why do we have to make the livings leave? It just seems like such a bummer." ( Hello! )
  • "Yeah, and the Man tried to make us wear bras and shave our pits. Drop acid, not bombs!" ( Viking Funeral )
  • She is noticeably absent in the episodes: Halloween , Alberta's Fan , and Jay's Sister .
  • Flower's actress, Sheila Carrasco, allegedly fought to keep her armpit hair for the part.
  • The surname was on a shortlist of last names that Sheila sent into the producers when asked for input. Montero was a family name she included to honor her Chilean heritage. [4]
  • In the older draft of the script  for the Pilot. Flower had an different last name and her ghost power was revealed much earlier on.
  • In the episode The Perfect Assistant she mentions she had an uncle that ordered her weed, gives her advice, and stared too long at her friends.
  • She starts to test what she can and can't walk through or sit on in the episode The Baby Bjorn .
  • She doesn't like tomatoes which is first mentioned in Flower's Article .
  • Flower has slept with a bass player before saying that he had incredible nimble fingers in The Christmas Spirit .
  • She like horses [5]
  • Flower is a fan of Country Joe and the Fish as mentioned in Alberta's Descendant .
