Updated: Nov. 29, 2023 – The end of the year is fast approaching and with it we’re coming increasingly closer to the Ghosts season 3 premiere. The series is scheduled to debut its third season on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 8:30 p.m. ET after Young Sheldon‘s final season opener.
Cameras start rolling on Saturday, Dec. 2, according to star Danielle Pinnock. Deadline reports the actress not only shared that’ll she’ll be flying out to Montreal in the coming days but also: “We did a table read — those scripts are good!”
We can’t wait to find out what happens next in the series, after all we need answers after that shocking turn of events at the end of season 2.
During the season, we got closure over Alberta’s murder. It turns out that Hetty knew who killed Alberta all along, and it caused a rift between them. Then there was the chance that Sam and Jay would lose the property due to inheritance issues. Well, that turned out to be a con, and the house is safe. But not all the ghosts are. Someone was “sucked off” at the end of the season. Sam couldn’t tell who, and neither could we.
Who’s the ghost that got “sucked off” in the season 2 finale? (speculation)
Of course, we don’t have details of the third season just yet. We’re sure to see the start of the season focused on who was “sucked off” and what that means for the other ghosts.
It is possible that Nigel is the one to go. He wasn’t a main character, and his exit will lead to a lot of conversations about grief. Isaac was just getting to the point of acceptance. They were happy and engaged, and then all of a sudden Nigel is taken from him. While the ghosts have had to deal with the grief of the living going on without them, they’ve not had to deal with the grief of losing someone they love—of having to go on without that person. So, this is a chance to explore that if it is Nigel. Or perhaps Pete is leaving after getting the chance to walk his daughter down the aisle?
We’re sort of hoping that it’s a basement ghost or one of the others on the property that we haven’t really come to know and love. However, the UK version did bring this storyline with Mary being the one to leave. That was due to Katy Wix’s schedule and wish to move on from the show, though. Her basement counterpart was also missing in season 4.
What we do know is Alberta, Hetty, and Flower are sticking around. Pinnock stated that viewers will be seeing more of her character and Rebecca Wisocky’s, and that “Alberta’s going to be in her shenanigans.” Sheila Carrasco was also brought up in the interview in reference to her expecting her first child.
Rose McIver will return as Sam and Utkarsh Ambudkar will be back as Jay in Ghosts season 3.
Why was Ghosts season 3 delayed?
In case you haven’t been keeping up with entertainment industry news, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) went on strike against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) in May 2023 after not being able to come to an agreement on their new contracts.
Then, in July 2023, the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) faced the same dilemma with the AMPTP and went on strike as well. That means that since the two unions went on strike, writers and actors couldn’t work on projects associated with the AMPTP. This included CBS shows like Ghosts, along with all of the other American broadcast shows that were expected to return for the fall 2023 season.
Both strikes are now over, paving the way for series to go back into production. However, this doesn’t mean fans can expect the usual episode count. Danielle Pinnock told Deadline that she’s only expecting 10 episodes to be shot for season 3. This is due to the strikes and is to be expected as CBS series, with exception to Young Sheldon, will range from 10-13 episodes in order to make May finales.
