PremiseEdit

Married New Yorkers Samantha and Jay Arondekar believe that their dreams have come true when they inherit a beautiful country house from Sophie Woodstone, a distant relative of Sam's, only to find that it is falling apart and inhabited by ghosts who died on the mansion's grounds and are now bound to the area until they can reach the afterlife. Jay cannot see or hear the ghosts, but Samantha can, after having a near-death experience.

CastEdit

MainEdit

LivingEdit

  • Rose McIver as Samantha Arondekar, a freelance journalist who, after an accident that leaves her close to death, revives with the ability to see and hear ghosts everywhere.[6]
  • Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay Arondekar, Samantha's husband and an unemployed chef.[6]

GhostsEdit

  • Asher Grodman as Trevor Lefkowitz, the most recently deceased of the ghosts, a wealthy, hard-partying business executive and Wall Street tycoon[7] who died in 2000 from a heart attack, caused by an accidental drug overdose, while not wearing pants. Unlike the other ghosts, he can interact with the physical world to a limited degree if he concentrates hard enough.[8] He is based on Julian Fawcett MP in the original British series.
  • Richie Moriarty as Pete Martino, a Pinecone Trooper leader[7] who died in 1985 when one of his scouts accidentally shot him through the neck with an arrow.[8] He is based on Pat Butcher in the original British series.
  • Sheila Carrasco as Susan Montero, a.k.a Flower, a hippie[6] who died while trying to befriend a wild bear.[9] She has the power to put a living person in a trance, as if under the influence of marijuana, if she passes through them.[10]
  • Danielle Pinnock as Alberta Haynes, a flamboyant Prohibition-era jazz singer[7] who died from drinking poisoned moonshine.[11] Her humming can be heard by the living.[8] She can be heard by Alexa devices.
  • Brandon Scott Jones as Captain Isaac Higgintoot, a closeted gay American Revolutionary officer[7] who died of dysentery[8] two weeks after the siege of Fort Ticonderoga[9] and has been largely forgotten by history, making him immensely jealous of the more famous Alexander Hamilton.[9] He is based on the Captain in the original British series.
  • Rebecca Wisocky as Hetty Woodstone, the lady of the manor, Sam's fourth-great-grandmother, and the original owner of the Woodstone country estate.[6] She is based on Lady Fanny Button in the original British series. Hetty can possess a living person who has been shocked by electricity.
  • Román Zaragoza as Sasappis, a cynical Lenape Native American.[6]
  • Devan Chandler Long as Thorfinn, a Viking and the oldest of the ghosts, who set out on an expedition to North America but was abandoned by his shipmates and died of a lightning strike. He has the ability to make lights flicker. He shares some attributes with Robin the caveman in the original British series.[8]

RecurringEdit

GhostsEdit

  • Hudson Thames as Crash, a 1950s-era James Dean style ghost who was decapitated.[12] The character has so far only appeared in "Pilot", "Halloween", and "Trevor's Pants", but CBS has suggested he may return in future episodes.[13] He is based on Sir Humphrey Bone in the British version; however, unlike Humphrey, whose head is always present in each appearance, only Crash's headless body appears.

In addition to the main ghosts, the mansion houses a group of ghosts who died of cholera and occupy the basement. Their sickly appearance disturbs the upstairs ghosts. The total number is uncertain, but six have been named, three of which have been named within the series (Nancy, Stuart and Creepy Dirk), with the remaining three being listed in the credits. They are based on the Plague ghosts in the British version.

  • Stuart Fink as Cholera Victim Stuart
  • Arthur Holden as Cholera Victim Creepy Dirk
  • Cody Crain as Cholera Victim Cody
  • Nigel Downer as Cholera Victim Nigel
  • Cat Lemieux as Cholera Victim Catherine
  • Betsy Sodaro as Cholera Victim Nancy

There are also three British soldier ghosts who died in the Revolutionary War and occupy the shed on the property as that has been the agreement since the war ended. As a result, they know Isaac. They keep mostly to themselves and only come up to the main house to redraw the border lines every few years, although the main house ghosts say it's only for Nigel, their leader, to flirt with Isaac, who accidentally shot him. It is revealed in the season one finale that Nigel and Jenkins had a brief tryst at one point.

  • John Hartman as Nigel Chessum
  • Chad Andrews as Baxter, Nigel's subordinate who plays a military drum
  • Christian Daoust as Jenkins, Nigel's subordinate who plays a fife

LivingEdit

  • Tristan D. Lalla as Mark, a construction worker involved in renovating Woodstone Manor for Sam and Jay.

GuestsEdit

  • Mark Linn-Baker and Kathryn Greenwood as Henry and Margaret Farnsby, Sam and Jay's neighbors who promise to support their permit applications for their renovations. They are based on Barclay Beg-Chetwynde and his wife in the British version.
  • Caroline Aaron as Carol, Pete's wife who cheated on him when he was alive.
  • Rachael Harris as Sheryl, Sam's mother, who she sees as a ghost at the restaurant where she died. After she and Sam make peace with each other, she moves on to the afterlife.
  • Punam Patel as Bela, Jay's sister who gets catfished by Trevor. Sam tells her the truth about her talking to ghosts, and while Bela is at first skeptical, Sam is able to convince her with the help of the ghosts.
  • Matt Walsh as Elias Woodstone, Hetty's husband, who was trapped in a ghost proof vault. He has the power to make people sexually aroused when he walks through them. After he rants about never becoming a better person, he is seemingly sent to Hell.
  • Gregory Zaragoza as Naxa, Sass's father who tries to convince him not to be a storyteller.
  • Odessa A'zion as Stephanie, a teenage ghost who was murdered on her prom night by a chainsaw killer in 1987. She sleeps in the attic most of the time and wakes up for only one day each year.
