Coming as no surprise, FOX announced today that its supernatural comedy Ghosted will not be continuing beyond its current season. That show debuted in Fall 2017 in the post-Simpsons timeslot on Sundays and posted good ratings throughout the Fall months, though its numbers were typically inflated by bleed-over from the NFL games on Sunday afternoon. The show had some behind the scenes shakeups, and the network brought in a new showrunner for the later episode. FOX also appeared to lose faith in the series as it only briefly returned after its Winter hiatus then disappeared from the schedule altogether.
Ghosted ended the season as one of the FOX’s better rated shows based on its Fall numbers, and the network claimed that the remaining episodes would air in Summer and they would then decide its fate. But it showed up on the schedule in June with little notice and aired amidst repeats, resulting in low ratings. It still has three more episodes to go, but those have not been scheduled and they may not air at all now that the show has been cancelled. It sure seemed like FOX should have given this one a better chance based on its early ratings success, but perhaps the behind the scenes issues proved too much for the network and they decided to cut this one loose. I never noticed much in the way of fan support for the show, so I don’t know if there will be much of an effort to lobby other venues to pick it up. At this point, I would say the chances of this one get saved are very slim.
Ghosted follows a miss-matched pair that is recruited as paranormal investigators by a mysterious organization known The Bureau Underground. It stars Adam Scott, Craig Robinson, Ally Walker, Adeel Akhtar.
There are still a few more shows from the regular season awaiting word on their fates such as Superstition, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, and Altered Carbon. Be sure to follow CancelledSciFi.com and the Cancelled Sci Fi Twitter Site for updates and breaking news on these shows and more.
