Ghosts has been a scary good hit for the CBS network in its first season and now they have rewarded the series for its troubles, as it’s been announced that the freshman comedy series has been renewed for season 2.

Ghosts is based on the British series of the same name and it has performed solidly from the start for CBS. The series is averaging 8.06 million viewers per episode with a week of delayed viewing, trailing only Young Sheldon’s 9.18 million viewers among comedies this season, per “The Hollywood Reporter.”

On the show, a young couple’s dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house, only to find it’s both falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents. The series stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar. In addition to the renewal for Ghosts, CBS has also renewed The Neighborhood for a fifth season and Bob Hearts Abishola for a fourth. Young Sheldon is in the first year of its three-season pickup so The Big Bang Theory prequel series will also be returning. CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl had this to say about the renewals:

“We’re thrilled to bring back television’s four most-watched comedies for next season, and I’m proud of the incredible team that maintains CBS’ position as the clear leader in comedy. Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, together with a breakout cast and exceptional writers, have done a superb job of adapting Ghosts for the U.S. and absolutely making it their own. This smart and charming show is delivering new creative highs, not to mention scaring up new audience highs, every week. And on Mondays, the perfect pairing of The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola continues to deftly blend belly laughs with relatable and culturally relevant storylines, thanks to these exceptionally talented actors and outstanding creative teams.”

The Neighborhood is currently in its fourth season and it averages 6.6 million viewers per episode. On the show, a friendly guy from the Midwest tries to fit in in a tough L.A. neighborhood. The series stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Tichina Arnold, and Beth Behrs.

Bob Hearts Abishola is in its third season and it also averages 6.6 million viewers. On the show, an American guy falls in love with his Nigerian nurse. The series stars Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku.
