Series 2 of Ghosts arrived on BBC One and iPlayer in September 2020 but attention is already starting to turn to whether Ghosts will be back for series 3.
With the tough times we’ve all been living through lately, a bit of comedy has never been so welcome.
As such, it’s a huge relief to have BBC sitcom, Ghosts, back on our screens for its much-anticipated second series after the success of 2019’s opening instalment.
Series 2 of Ghosts arrived on our screens on September 21st when it aired on BBC One.
However, the series also released on BBC iPlayer, meaning that plenty of fans will be well on their way to binging through all six episodes and will no doubt be turning their attention to whether or not a series 3 of Ghosts is on the cards.
Ghosts series 2 on BBC One
Ghosts returned to BBC One and iPlayer for series 2 on September 21st, 2020.
The six-episode series continues the story of Mike and Alison and their quest to turn their dilapidated old manor house into a luxury hotel.
However, their money has all but dried up and the gang of pesky ghosts that haunts the house continues to be a thorn in their sides.
Is Ghosts renewed for series 3?
- Yes, Ghosts is already renewed for series 3.
Thankfully for fans of the team behind Horrible Histories and Yonderland, the BBC ordered up a third series of Ghosts at the same time as it confirmed series 2.
That means there are plenty more adventures in-store for Mike, Alison and the loveable cast of ghosts that haunt Button House.
When will Ghosts series 3 arrive on BBC One?
Thanks to industry-wide delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s not clear when series 3 of Ghosts will arrive at the time of writing.
However, Ghosts co-creator and star, Laurence Rickard, who plays Robin the Caveman in the series, recently hinted at series 3’s timeframe.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Laurence Rickard said: “One of the tricky things at the moment is knowing how rules and regulations will change between now and February.”
Laurence’s mentioning of February would suggest that is when Ghosts series 3 is slated to start filming.
Providing that there are no delays and that series 3 runs to a similar timeframe to series 2 (which started shooting in January 2020 and released in September), we could end up seeing Ghosts series 3 in around October or November in 2021.
Until then, Ghosts series 2 is airing weekly on BBC One while all six episodes are available to stream now on BBC iPlayer.
