Ghost Whisperer: Is Tonight’s the Last Episode? Maybe Not…

Ghost Whisperer canceledIt was a little bit of a surprise that Ghost Whisperer was cancelled by CBS earlier this week. While the show’s ratings have dropped significantly this season, many reported that the TV show was on track for season six. Well, CBS may have cancelled it but the TV show could still continue on ABC.

Ghost Whisperer follows Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a young woman who has the ability to see, talk to, and help the dead. Series regulars have included David Conrad, Camryn Manheim, Jay Mohr, Aisha Tyler, Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, and Kenneth Mitchell.

With the current ratings, Ghost Whisperer wouldn’t ordinarily be of interest to ABC. However, the network co-owns the show with CBS and actually handles the production in-house. They actually developed the series before CBS picked it up back in 2005. If the price is right, ABC would stand to make more money from season six episodes once they hit syndication.

If Ghost Whisperer moves to ABC, should it air on Friday nights?

According to Deadline, negotiations for Ghost Whisperer possibly moving to ABC started on Tuesday afternoon and are still in motion. Word is that they are going well though there are a number of points to work out.

It’s positive that the showrunner for next season is already in place and producers have signed on. That means that the show is ready to go back into production. The Ghost Whisperer writing staff have all been asked not to take other jobs until a final decision is made.

For now, people are being cautiously optimistic. Deals like this have fallen apart at the last minute before but things are reportedly looking good. We’ll obviously keep you posted.

What do you think? Will a deal be made so that Ghost Whisperer can continue for year six on ABC? If that were to happen, when would you like to see it air — on Friday nights or in another spot?

    I can’t believe there will be no more Ghost Whisperer! My
    mom and my best friend turned me onto to it last year! Since then,
    I have watched every rerun over and over again! Being a new fan, I
    can see why the ratings dropped! Melinda and Jim are a beautiful
    couple, why would they chose an actor as their child who is cute
    but nothing like the parents! The child really cant act much
    either. I sometimes get embarassed for the little guy because of
    his bad acting! In the future have Melinda and Jim act like real
    life parents do today! Jim is a doctor, Melinda self employed, gosh
    I don’t know a parent today who has that much patience with their
    cildren! What a shame for a series… so many avenues to go down to
    keep the storyline going!If I do’t get to see another new episode,
    I wish all the actors and actresses best of luck in their future
    careers!

    I really don’t think you should cancel Ghost Whisperer. As someone previously mentioned, this show is worldwide. I live in Saudi Arabia for crying out loud! It’s amazing and it always makes me feel better, you know? I’m sure I’m not the only one to have cried during episodes, and mostly towards the end. They’re happy tears. The story line combined with the great actors is too good a deal to end.. Please don’t end this show!

    ABC…please keep the show going!! It’s my favorite show out there and I really miss watching it!! Put it back on!!!

    So much junk on TV. This is a heart warming, funny, suspenseful with a positive twist. I do agree killing Jim and having him still be himself is weird. A bad decision. Should never have killed him off but still worth the time and really the only show I have to tape. Please don’t cancel this show it’s missed in a big way already.

    I love the ghost whisperer and i cant believe that i have just watched the last ever episode on Living TV please dont axe this great show ,it has been my wednesday nite guilty pleasure.
    The cast and story lines have been great you could come back with the devil wants to take aiden or something.
    I cant tell you the amounts i`ve cryed.
    I know its an American show but my friends and colleagues in Britian love it and thats what should count that this show is world wide.
    I have to tell you though,when jim died and went into sams body it confused me to the fact he didnt need to die as it was always jim even when you did 5 years on, and just watchin the last few epiosdes she introduces her husband as jim and not sam.see how it got confusing? but still i watched it.
    thanks for you time
