The couple's hopes of a quaint retreat are quickly dashed when they find that its falling apart. Worse still, its inhabited by a collection of eccentric ghosts that only Sam can see and hear after being involved in a near-death experience.

The new season means a return of familiar apparitions like scout leader Pete, upper-class Hetty, Thorfinn the Viking, trouserless Wall Street "finance bro" Trevor and Susan the hippie, as well as the promise of at least one new spectral guest Woodstone.

The new season sees the Ghosts working alongside Sam and Jay as the couple look to make a success of turning the estate into an upmarket B&B with inevitably hilarious outcomes, with CBS promising both a Halloween and Christmas special later in the run.

How to watch Ghosts online: stream season 2 online in the US


If you have cable, Ghosts season 2 will be shown every Thursday on CBS, kicking off at 10pm ET/PT on September 29.

Tune in on linear TV or watch on-demand on the CBS website. You'll need to sign in with your cable provider details.

Alternatively, if you don't have the channel on linear TV, it's available to stream on Paramount Plus. Currently you can benefit from a 7-day FREE trial of Paramount Plus. Thereafter, Paramount Plus starts at $4.99 a month with Limited Ads, or $9.99 a month for No Ads.

Or, you can opt for a much more fully featured over-the-top streaming service. Some of them struggle with national networks like CBS, so our recommendation in this case would be FuboTV, which is a complete cable replacement starting from $64.99 a month. 

There's a FREE 7-day trial deal on offer to try it, and cancelling is easy if you decide it's not for you - essentially meaning it's possible to watch Ghosts online for free, at least the first episode anyway.

Away from the US but want to watch the same streaming coverage you do when at home? You got it - just grab a great VPN deal and follow our instructions above to get started.

How to watch Ghosts season 2 in the UK and beyond

Viewers in the UK will be familiar with the BBC original version of the show, which has just started its fourth season on the network.

Somewhat surprisingly, there isn't currently a UK broadcaster showing the US remake in the region, despite its early success Stateside. 

The only alternative is to use one of the best VPN providers to tap into a stream from another nation, as described above.

The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location - and all through a safe, encrypted connection. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services will require a credit card based in the country the service is from.
