It’s not yet clear if FOX is ghosting its freshman supernatural comedy series, Ghosted. Today, the network’s Chair and CEO Dana Walden, addressed whether Ghosted would be cancelled or renewed for season two, by metaphorically setting its Facebook status to, “It’s complicated.” The series was pulled from the air back in April, and is expected to finish its first season run (completed under the guidance of a new showrunner), this summer.
A FOX fantasy TV series, Ghosted stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, Ally Walker, Adeel Akhtar, and Amber Stevens West. Captain Ava Lafrey (Walker) orders the abduction of ex-LAPD detective and current mall security guard, Leroy Wright (Robinson), and former Stanford astrophysics professor and current bookstore clerk, Max Jennifer (Scott). She then recruits them to work for a secret governmental agency known as the Bureau Underground, to help save the world from all kinds of unusual threats.
Fox is heading into its upfront presentation today with two freshman comedy series, midseason addition LA to Vegas and fall entry Ghosted still in limbo.
“We haven’t made a decision,” Fox chairman Dana Walden said during Fox’s upfront press call today. “We still have episodes to air of a [sic] in July,” she said.
Ghosted was taken off the schedule in April. Remaining are the back 6 episodes of the supernatural comedy made under new showrunner Paul Lieberstein who was brought in after Season 10.
She and Fox chairman Gary Newman dismissed notion that LA to Vegas and Ghosted’s future is jeopardized by the fact that they are single-camera as all live-action series currently slated on Fox for next season are multi-camera – Last Man Standing The Cool Kids and Rel.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Ghosted TV series? Should this FOX TV show be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
