Will Ghosts Season 2 happen at CBS?

Ghosts is one of the best comedies on TV right now. Will Ghosts Season 2 happen? Here’s a look at the chances of renewal at CBS.

It’s normal to be concerned about new TV shows. You may not even watch them at first, worried about them not getting a renewal. The last thing you want to do is get invested in a new show only for it to be canceled.

But you want to watch Ghosts. You’ve heard about how funny it is, and you want to watch Rose McIver on your screen again. It leads to questions about the show’s future. What are the chances of Ghosts Season 2 happening?

Ghosts has a full-season order

The first thing to look at is whether the new show has got a full-season order. This is where we have great news. TVLine reports that CBS has granted Ghosts a full-season order. We don’t know exactly how many episodes that means right now. It could be as many as 22 to 24 episodes, but it could be around the 18-episode mark.

The networks are flexible with the episode counts this year. It takes longer than normal for shows to film due to the pandemic, and CBS wants to stick to as normal of a schedule as possible. That means finales airing in May 2022. If it means reducing the episode counts slightly then so be it.

However, getting the full season order is the most important thing to land a second season.

Ghosts Season 2 will likely happen

I’m calling for a renewal. When looking at the live TV ratings, Ghosts Season 2 simply makes sense. The series is the second most-watched comedy on the network in the live ratings. It sits in eighth place overall in terms of the demo, which is still good. Focusing on where it is among the comedies is important. After all, CBS won’t want to remove all comedies from its lineup considering the success of Young Sheldon.

The positive live results are encouraging. It’s why the show got a full-season order so quickly. I don’t think we’ll hear about the renewal for a while. CBS usually announces renewals in the new year, so we’re looking at around February 2022 to start with the renewal announcements.
