CBS is giving Ghosts fans a double dose of spirits this fall, and TVLine has an exclusive promo celebrating “the spectral relationship” between the American and British shows.
In Ghosts UK — which is making its broadcast debut in the U.S. — “crumbling country mansion Button House is home to restless spirits who have died there over the centuries,” reads the official synopsis. “Each a product of their time, they’re thrown together for eternity, resigned to squabble over mundane daily gripes. But their lives — or rather afterlives — are thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple, Alison ( YOU’ s Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe), unexpectedly inherit the peaceful derelict house and plan to turn it into a bustling hotel. As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers, and Alison and Mike discover the true scale of the project they’ve taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible house share. Cue all kinds of comedy chaos, with every day truly a matter of life and death.” Related Stories TVLine Items: Abbott Elementary Adds Josh Segarra, Is It Cake?

Stars Mathew Baynton (Romantic poet Thomas Thorne), Simon Farnaby (disgraced MP Julian Fawcett), Martha Howe-Douglas (lady of the manor Fanny Button), Jim Howick (scout leader Pat Butcher), Laurence Rickard (caveman Robin) and Ben Willbond (WWII Captain) pull double duty as co-creators. The ensemble also includes Lolly Adefop (excitable noblewoman Kitty) and Katy Wix (witch trial victim Mary).
The British Ghosts will also be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

The UK version is wildly funnier. Once again proving America ruins everything
While both versions are arguably equally funny, I’ll have to disagree and say that the American one is decidedly better overall. The American characters are much better conceived, developed and performed (both the humans and the ghosts), and there is an innate warmth and playfulness to the newer show that is missing from the often dour British original.
I think there’s more development to the American ghosts than the British ones, which probably is a byproduct of having more episodes in the season. I enjoy both and I’m glad the US version, while sharing aspects, isn’t a carbon copy.
I’m with you, Becca. I think both versions are great.
I enjoy both versions but if i compared ghost for ghost, every version (where it’s comparable) is better on the bbc version – and honestly some of the ones they lost (like the so called poet) are huge losses to the show…the lack of that love plotline is disappointing
I’ve been very disappointed that for some reason the most recent series has not made it to max – i hope we get all four series in the us
The fifth (and final) season premiered in the UK last month.
Disagree. I was a fan of the British series before the US remake was optioned, and the format is so flexible that they are BOTH enjoyable in their own ways. I’d go farther and say that there are ways the American version has improved on the original—for instance, expanding the geography (with other locations on the property, the “car ghost,” etc.) to provide more story possibilities, and by not being so skittish about a character having a same-sex attraction.
I definitely agree with the US series being able to expand the ‘ghost lore’ etc and providing more storyline possibilities (given its 20 episodes to a series/season compared to the UK’s 6, both make sense).
However, I have to sort of disagree about your comment regarding the UK not being so skittish about having a character experiencing same-sex attraction. It’s not skittish and is actually done intentionally and incredibly well (and further explored in S4 & 5 which you guys obviously do not have yet)
Personally, I find from a historical POV having an obviously ‘out’ closeted character like Isaac utterly, utterly baffling.
I know the producers apparently said ‘be yourselves’ (found this out 2nd hand on social media) and from what I’ve seen Brandon Scott-Jones is quite flamboyant (only seen him in Ghosts US and the Good Place and a couple of Ghosts interviews). I get that.
However, it was illegal to be gay in WWII and also the Revolutionary War (I’m British and don’t know anything about the Revolutionary War really)
For simplicity’s sake I’m going to assume the punishments for being gay are the same i.e. a choice between jail and hard labour (how Oscar Wilde died) or chemical castration via oestrogen injections (which happened to Alan Turing – who supposedly committed suicide via poisoned apple after – even though his codebreaking skills helped shorten the war by 5 or so years).
At this time in the Army, it’s very likely you could be ‘outed’ (whether or not you were gay) just by looking at a man in a way which could be taken the ‘wrong’ way, and then severely punished. So why would you purposefully make it very very very obvious and put yourself in an extremely dangerous situation?
Also there’s no 3 dimensionality with Isaac compared to The Captain (his name isn’t revealed until a flashback in Series 5). Isaac literally reminds me of the 70s sitcom actor where ‘being gay’ is the whole job.
Whereas in the UK version (very very minor spoilers to those who haven’t seen S2 when it was on HBO Max) we see the Captain (in flashbacks) be a Commanding Officer, and there are two occasions (in S2 E1, the Grey Lady, and one of my fav episodes, S2 E3, Redding Weddy) where he literally gets carried away, and forgetting he’s dead for a second, sacrifices himself to save his fellow living and dead friends.
None of that from Isaac. Nothing much about his time in the war, just him dying (though there’s the interesting plot line of him struggling with the fact he thinks his wife would hate him). I think they might have wanted to explore that side in Season 3 but the writers strikes etc.
Isaac’s flamboyance just comes across as almost cartoonish as do things like his gasping and very obvious double entendres.
The huge difference between Brandon Scott-Jones as Isaac and Ben Willbond as The Captain is The Captain is gay but does not let that define who he is.
The Captain doesn’t let his same sex attraction define him. He’s a brave military leader, de facto leader of the ghosts of Button House, and father figure to Kitty (Katherine) who just happens to fancy men, and is love with a specific one at that, who we see in flashbacks.
Isaac fancies men and literally not much else, and is pretty much defined by his gayness and flamboyance (though we do see his fear of commitment etc). Again I think this lack of characterisation as a Revolutionary War soldier is due to the WGA strikes and they possibly wanted to explore that storyline in S3 (if he wasn’t the one sucked off in the S2 finale) but still.
Ben has actually become a bit of queer icon in England. Which doesn’t surprise me, but I do find it ironic the actor who’s become a queer icon is straight and married to a woman with 2 tween/teen kids, and the actor who’s playing a lot into gay stereotypes is gay. You’d think the gay actor would go to great lengths to avoid the gay clichés and stereotypes.
I don’t know. . Going way back, but “Three’s Company” certainly became its own successful entity out of “Man About The House”. . See also: “All In The Family” and “Sanford and Son” versus their British origins. . So no, America doesn’t ruin everything. . Both “Ghosts” series have something to offer.
No, the UK version is funnier. But the US version is also funny, the ghosts are great it’d the two home owners that are not as good
You could also just get cbc gem and see all 4 season of U.K. Ghosts.
The 5th season aired in the UK this month.
5th and final season, they are getting a Christmas special this year as the series finale
It’s also on Max
It was removed from Max last month.
I hope Paramount+ streams season 4 and 5 of the British version. Max pulled the first three seasons.
Wahoo! When are they doing a crossover?
Given the established rules for the ghosts, I’m not even sure how that would work. I suppose the living characters could visit one another, though that seems a little less fun.
Though if Samantha visited Button House, or Allison visited Woodstone Mansion, they’d obviously be able to see the ghosts there.
The couples could swap houses a la The Holiday. I see big potential for the hilarity there, especially when thinking about the ghosts that are similar and the ones that are different. Needs to be a full hour Christmas special I think. OMG the more I think about this, the more I need it to happen
Is Paramount+ going to have the unedited episodes? I assume, at the very least, CBS will need to edit for time. And yes, I hope this leads to Paramount+ getting the newer seasons as well!
I really hope so. Yes the UK episodes have to cut almost a third (8 mins of a 30 min show) to fit ad schedules.
I really don’t understand why they couldn’t just pull Young Sheldon reruns (which is also on P+) push US Ghosts to 8pm then have UK Ghosts take the 8:30-10pm slot so they can air 2 episodes back to back without having to cut 8min per episode.
Still want to know how they’re handling the longer running time on the BBC versions. They’ll need to cut as much as eight minutes (nearly a quarter of an episode) to fit a traditional CBS time slot.
Oh no! That’s terrible
Back to back eps could fit in an hour and a half.
Yes this was my thought! Pull the Young Sheldon reruns (as YS is also on P+) push US Ghosts to 8pm and have UK Ghosts take the 8:30-10pm slot giving them time to air the episodes back to back without having to worry about cutting 8 mins per episode.
But maybe it’s a bit too late to do that now.
It left hbo max before I finished glad to have a chance to see it through
I love the US version of Ghosts! I’ve watched every available episode multiple times. Hubs and I tried to watch the UK show, but barely got through the first couple of episodes. I wasn’t a fan.
You need a couple episodes to get into it (the first 2) did you watch the whole first series?
I’m the complete opposite; I re-watch the UK version all the time and the more I watch the UK version the more I find the US version a chore to watch in comparison.
I’m a Brit and was highly suspicious of a US remake but I think they did a great job of capturing the same warmth and wacky humour. The US version has a lot more episodes so has indeed broadened the world and the US ghosts like the civil war soldier, Native American and flapper singer worked well. Not sure why the U.K. caveman became a Viking in the US version! I give Charlotte Richie the edge over Rose McIver in the central ‘straight’ role but both shows are great! I believe the U.K. team were involved so probably why they do have so much DNA in common
The original UK version is written and performed by a comedy troupe. They also played multiple ghosts on the show. The tone is decidedly more offbeat, with more chemistry from a group of comedian who have performed together for a long time.
I will be tuning in!!! I love both versions!!!
Yes where can I watch. I live in Detroit Michigan I have been trying to find the BRITISH original and can NOT watch it on GEM. They say Gem not televised in USA
GEM is the free streaming app from our national broadcaster CBC. Ahem, you could VPN?
I ❤️ this show. Can’t wait til it’s back!!!!!!😍😍💖💖🥳🎉
I love the U.S. version of this show, and I’m looking forward to checking out the British version as well. It’ll be fun to do a compare/contrast and to see where it all began
Just remember, the UK version was first, so when you see similar things, they’re not copying.
leah, Angela clearly knows this.
I already watched the original Ghosts on HBOMax. I normally love British shows, but something about the UK version isn’t as heartwarming as the one on CBS. I think maybe because there are wayyyyy too many ghosts in the house on that one?
I agree. I like British TV, but the U.K. version was too chaotic, due to the number of ghosts.
On BBC the show’s 5th season was its final one. But maybe the two British hotel owners can sometime guest star in the US version…
Does this mean Ghosts UK Series 4 will FINALLY be streaming in the US?
I had started watching it on Max last year, but got busy and didn’t finish. Now it’s gone, so I hope it’ll show up on Paramount+ if it’s airing on CBS.
Yes, yes, yes!
Can’t wait for it to come back. Didn’t know it was a remake of a British version. That’ll be fun to see too
I’ve been really enjoying the US version but the original UK show had my heart. The BBC version of Ghosts is more subtle and nuanced than the broader strokes of its American counterpart, the writing of the former bringing a lot of laughter and not a few tears, something I’ve yet to experience with Ghosts US. We’ve just had the very last episode of the UK version and thought of as a whole, it was one of the best sitcoms and ensemble casts in our television history. Looking forward to new episodes of Ghosts US to take away the pain of saying goodbye to our Ghosts.

CBS's Ghosts season 3: release date and everything we know about the comedy
The ghosts of Woodstone Mansion are back for another season.
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 season 7 , The Neighborhood season 6 and Bob Hearts Abishola season 5 on the network.
Ghosts , which is adapted from the BBC series of the same name, 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
Ghosts season 3 officially returns 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 .
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).
We now have the official synopsis for the Ghosts season 3 premiere, which is titled "The Owl." Here it is:
"Sam, Jay and the remaining ghosts unravel the mystery of which ghost passed into the afterlife. Also, Sam and Jay must relocate an owl in order to do construction on the barn to turn it into Jay’s restaurant."
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 know that Rose 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.
One of the first images for Ghosts season 3, which you can see below, also reveal that Tristan D. Lalla, who plays Mark, is also going to returning for some episodes of the new season.
Ghosts season 3 trailer
