Ghost Whisperer: Staying Cancelled, No Season Six on ABC

Ghost WhispererA staple of CBS’ Friday night schedule, ratings for Ghost Whisperer have dropped quite a bit over the season. Last week, the network surprised many viewers by cancelling the TV show after five seasons. The blow was softened when it was learned that the series might get a second chance on ABC. The alphabet network has now apparently passed.

Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisperer began in September 2005 and ran for 107 episodes. The series’ regular cast has also included David Conrad, Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, Camryn Manheim, Aisha Tyler, and Jay Mohr.

Things had been looking positive for the series to continue and some outlets actually had even reported that the show had been picked up. Unfortunately, the deal didn’t work out.

We may never know the details but Ghost Whisperer executive producers Kim Moses and Ian Sander issued a statement that said, “After five wonderful seasons and over 100 episodes, we are disappointed to announce Ghost Whisperer will not be returning for a sixth season. We’ve had an incredible experience and owe a debt of gratitude to everyone involved. We continue our relationship with ABC Studios and look forward to developing many more successful projects together in the future.”

While it looks like Heroes and Law & Order will get some closure, there’s been no word on any plans to go back into production and wrap up Ghost Whisperer.

What do you think? Sad to see it go? How would you have ended Melinda’s story?

    To the idiots who canceled Ghost Whisperer What the hell were you thinking Maybe you were not thinking. The show was amazing and thought provoking but some 3 piece suit college grad canceled an immensely popular show. Are you execs brain dead

    I miss the show too but I had a hard time staying intrigued after Jim died…. Jim and Melinda were my favorite and it just wasn’t the same.

    Ghost Whisperer is the ONLY show that my whole family loves to watch together! Please bring it back. It is hard to find good programming on tv and now they have taken away our favorite one :(

    I am still totally disappointed that Ghost Whisperer did not get the 6th season it deserved! I own all 5 seasons on DVD and still, to this day, feel that it needed a MUCH better ending. The ending that us fans got actually left us expecting to see more. Totally unfair!

    Ghost Whisperer was may favorite show. There was no ending. If they dont want to bring it back, they should at least make a tv movie to sum up everything .! I think us fans deserve it. Consider it CBS??

    Heroes and Law & Order are not in my line of interest.. It’s a sad sad thought not to ever have Ghost Whisperer back on the air.. It didn’t end correctly not for a series finale that is.. It was bad enough they did away with Medium and Charmed.. NOW Ghost Whisperer.. My only QUESTION is WHY?… Everybody I KNOW watched Ghost Whisperer.. I am sure there are more that did as well.. Please Bring IT BACK and you will see the OVERLY WELCOME of dedicated VIEWERS..

    Please Please Please! Continue the story of Melinda and her family there are so many angles like with the book, shadows, shiny people etc that could be used as a source of continued torment under Melinda’s regular ghost appearances. This series I got started on late but fell instantly in love with it! How cool would it be to add another child to the family who posesses other gifts etc and how Melinda would need to protect them etc?! You have serious fans that still care a year after the show is cancelled to continue to fight to say we care and we want more! We WILL watch and it will be amazing! Pretty please with a cherry on top?!!!

    I believe Ghost Whisperer is one of the best shows of all time. I cant believe they cancelled the show so abruptly. They at least needed to give the show a good send off. For the fans sakes. If it were up to me. I would bring it back somewhere. Id find some way of bringing the fans what they want. I followed Melinda and Jim’s relationship from beginning to end and we deserve a better ending than we got. Please give it a thought CBS. Not cool.
