CBS has handed a full season order to their freshman comedy series, Ghosts. This marks their third full season order of the fall season after FBI: International and NCIS: Hawaii.

Ghosts premiered on October 7, 2021, and, per “Deadline“, has become the No. 1 most-watched new comedy this season. Its two-episode premiere had the largest lift in L+7 of all new and returning comedy premieres thus far this season and the show received more than 5.5 million total live viewers on premiere night but added more than 2.2 million viewers in L+7, bringing total viewers to 7.76 million. Its third episode, airing on October 14, 2021, only saw a small dip in total live viewers, receiving almost 5.3 million. That’s excellent retention for just about any show but especially a comedy series on network TV. Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, CBS Entertainment, had this to say about the full season pickup:

“We’re thrilled this spirited new comedy has struck a chord with viewers and critics alike and is off to a great start. We’ve loved Ghosts since day one, and thank the outstanding executive producers, cast, and writers for skillfully bringing to life the boldest, most unique comedy you’ll find anywhere on television this season.”

Ghosts is based on the BBC comedy of the same name and follows a young couple (played by Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar) who inherit a country estate and decide to move into it to fix it up to become a bed and breakfast. While there, she has an accident that allows her to see the many deceased residents who are still tethered to the home. The titular ghosts are played by Danielle Pinnock, Brandon Scott Jones, Sheila Carrasco, Richie Moriarty, Devon Chandler Long, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, and Rebecca Wisocky.
