CBS has landed a big hit series with Ghosts, the network's newest half-hour comedy, and fans now have a first look at the show's upcoming prom episode: "Attic Girl."

Ghosts, a CBS Original series, returns Thursday, April 14 a 9PM, ET/PT. The show will be available to stream on Paramount+ the following day.

Attic Girl and Sam
Trading the undead for the mostly-still-dead, Ghosts stars Rose McIver as Samantha, a woman who inherits a large New York estate and decides, along with her husband Jay – played by Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project) – to turn the manner into a bed and breakfast. However, unbeknownst to our clueless couple, the house is haunted by a group of ghosts who are much more friendly than frightening.prevnext

Stephanie and Trevor
In an official synopsis of this show, CBS describes Ghosts as "a single-camera comedy about Samantha (McIver) and Jay (Ambudkar)" who are a cheerful freelance journalist and up-and-coming chef from the city, respectively. The couple decides to "throw both caution and money to the wind when they decide to convert a huge rundown country estate they inherited into a bed & breakfast." Once there, they "find it's inhabited by the many spirits of deceased residents who now call it home."prevnext
The synopsis continues, "The departed souls are a close-knit, eclectic group that includes a saucy Prohibition-era lounge singer, a pompous 1700's Militiaman, a '60s hippie fond of hallucinogens, an overly upbeat '80s scout troop leader," and "a cod-obsessed Viking explorer from 1009." There is also "a slick '90s finance bro, a sarcastic and witty Native from the 1500s, and a society woman and wife of an 1800's robber baron who is Samantha's ancestor."prevnext

The series description adds, "If the spirits were anxious about the commotion a renovation and B&B will create in their home, it's nothing compared to when they realize Samantha is the first live person who can see and hear them."prevnext
