Ghosts Series 4 launches with a behind-the-scenes podcast

The hilarious haunted antics of Ghosts returns tonight for a fourth run.

While the US version has been a success, with 18 episodes and a second series commissioned, the original show continues apace with six new episodes and the promise of another Christmas Special to come too.

Ghosts Series 4

For the uninitiated, the story follows Alison (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe), a young couple who inherit a dilapidated mansion. However, renovation plans for Button House go out the window when Alison discovers she can see the numerous ghosts who also reside there; each of the restless souls met their end on the property.

The hit show, which launched in 2019, comes from the stars of Horrible Histories, all of whom play the ghosts themselves;  Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond. Lolly Adefope and Katy Wix also star.


Here’s the synopsis for Series 4:

This series Alison and Mike open their much anticipated, bijoux B&B in the gatehouse at Button House. They are determined to get the very best reviews, knowing their livelihoods depend on it.

As Alison becomes consumed by the demands of the more difficult guests and Mike works tirelessly to ensure they provide 5-star entertainment, the Ghosts face a startling event that that will change their lives/deaths forever. A stroke of terrible bad luck threatens the future of Button House.

Ghosts Series 4 begins tonight, September 23rd, at 8.50 pm on BBC One. Additionally, the whole series also lands on BBC iPlayer too.

A Ghostly Podcast too

To accompany the new series, there’s a new BBC Sounds podcast which is produced by Bafflegab.
