Straight from the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the original CBS hit Ghosts released a hilarious gag reel for the show’s first season. The show’s writer and executive producer, Joe Wiseman, also confirmed during the panel that in season two, “we’re going to learn a little bit more” about the backstory of each of the ghosts that appear. Wiseman teased the life and later death of Alberta’s Prohibition-era jazz singer Danielle Pinnock, teasing that “some suspects” in her death will also come to light. He also noted that each ghost has its own
“The B&B will be open, so we finally have guests,” star Rose McIver revealed to Entertainment Weekly about Ghosts season 2. “Obviously it’s not easy…and we have eight surprise locals.” Speaking on the panel, the cast and crew were asked who they would like to appear on the show in a guest role, as a living or naturally dead character. Actress Rebecca Wisocky had the best suggestion, noting to the panel: “We would love to be visited by the cast of the original (series)”, referring to the original BBC version of Ghosts.

The panel for Ghosts may be over, but an official interactive series activation will be available for the remainder of the convention. As part of CBS’ immersive “Summer of Ghosts” marketing campaign honoring the “recently departed” first season and its second season coming this fall, Ghosts will appear in San Diego with Pinecone Trooper Pete’s “Friend Zone,” a activation with a camping feel in honor of Ghost Scout Leader Pete, whose unfortunate archery accident left him with an arrow in his neck for eternity. The activation will be set up in the Petco Park Interactive Zone from July 21-24 and will feature a “fearless” archery activation – but nothing is as it seems at this campsite set on ” the lawn” of The Woodstone Mansion – the setting for the show and the home of the ghosts. Fans can connect with Ghosts and “the other side” through psychic mediums and programming that will give participants insight into their past, present, and future lives.
