The CBS original series “Ghosts” will make its San Diego Comic-Con debut with a panel discussion and a few interactive experiences.
San Diego Comic-Con International returns as a live summer event July 21 to 24 San Diego Convention Center and surrounding areas of downtown San Diego.
The panel for “Ghosts” will take place Thursday, July 21, in Ballroom 20. The full cast, including “livings” Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, as well as “ghosts” Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, Sheila Carrasco, Rebecca Wisocky and Devan Chandler Long, and executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, will take part in a panel discussion moderated by series guest star Matt Walsh. The panel will be and will treat fans with never-before-seen footage, including a preview of season two.
As part of CBS’s “Summer of ‘Ghosts’” immersive marketing campaign honoring the “recently departed” first season and its upcoming sophomore season this fall, “Ghosts” will show up in San Diego with Pinecone Trooper Pete’s “Friend Zone,” an activation with a campsite feel in honor of scout leader ghost Pete, whose unfortunate archery accident left him with an arrow through his neck for eternity. The activation will be set up at the Interactive Zone at Petco Park from July 21-24, and will feature a “scare-free” archery activation — but nothing is what it seems at this campsite setup on ‘the lawn’ of The Woodstone Mansion — the show’s setting and home to the ghosts. Fans can connect with Ghosts and ‘the other side’ through psychic mediums and programming that’ll give attendees insight into their past, present, and future lives.
Fans who can’t make it to San Diego can still enjoy the “Ghosts” experience in the Metaverse, which, beginning on July 21, will take fans on an immersive journey through the haunted Woodstone Mansion to solve puzzles, undertake quests and earn limited edition, collectible NFTs. The “Ghosts” mansion was meticulously recreated using actual blueprints and features surprising interactions with the show’s main characters.
Season two of “Ghosts,” which CBS touts touted as the No. 1 new series on TV and the top comedy on streaming service Paramount+, premieres Thursday, Sept. 29, in its new time slot at 8:30 p.m. The entire first season is available to stream on demand on Paramount+. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Lionsgate Television and BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions. It is based on the BBC Studios series of the same name. Additional information about “Ghosts” activities at Comic-Con will be shared via the show’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts @GhostsCBS.
