|Ghosts (2019 British TV series)|
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, appearing as they did at the times of their deaths, until they can reach the afterlife. Jay cannot see or hear the ghosts, but Sam can after a near-death experience.
- Rose McIver as Samantha “Sam” Arondekar, a freelance journalist who, after an accident that leaves her clinically dead for three minutes, revives with the ability to see, hear, and interact with ghosts. She is based on Alison Cooper from the original British series.
- Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay Arondekar, Samantha's husband and a chef with many typically "nerdy" interests such as comic books, sci-fi films, video games, and Dungeons & Dragons. He is based on Mike Cooper from the original British series.
- Brandon Scott Jones as Captain Isaac Higgintoot, an initially closeted gay Continental Army officer who died of dysentery two weeks after the siege of Fort Ticonderoga and has been largely forgotten by history, making him immensely jealous of the more famous Alexander Hamilton. The living can smell a foul odor if he passes through them. At the end of the first season, he begins a relationship with a British officer haunting a shed on the property, whom he accidentally killed with an invention that would become the sniper rifle. He is based mainly on the Captain in the original British series, while his ghost power is similar to that of Mary the witch trial victim.
- Danielle Pinnock as Alberta Haynes, a flamboyant Prohibition-era Lounge singer who was murdered by drinking strychnine-laced moonshine, the solving of which is a key plot arc of the second season. Her humming can be heard by the living. She can also be heard by Alexa devices.
- Richie Moriarty as Pete Martino, a cheerful, friendly, and polite but socially awkward travel agent and Pinecone Trooper leader of Italian descent who died in 1985 when one of his girlscouts accidentally shot him through the neck with an arrow. He has an unrequited romantic interest in Alberta, and Jay considers him his best friend despite being unable to perceive his presence. Among his varied interests are improv, basketball, Dungeons & Dragons, and Star Wars films. He is based on Pat Butcher in the original British series.
- Asher Grodman as Trevor Lefkowitz, the most recently deceased of the ghosts, a wealthy, womanizing, hard-partying stockbroker of Jewish ancestry who died in 2000 from a heart attack, caused by an accidental drug overdose, while not wearing pants. Though he claims he lost his pants because he died during a sexual encounter, he simply lent his pants to a friend as a good deed. He can physically interact with the corporeal world to a limited degree if he concentrates hard enough, usually with only one index finger. He is based on Julian Fawcett MP in the original British series.
- Sheila Carrasco as Susan Montero/"Flower", a cheerful and sweet but naive and forgetful hippie who lived in both a commune and a cult in the 1960s. She was mauled to death by a bear she tried to hug while under the influence of drugs. She can put a living person into a hallucinogenic high if she passes through them and likes being part of throuples.
- Devan Chandler Long as Thorfinn/"Thor", an aggressive, often overly dramatic Viking from Norway and the oldest of the ghosts, who set out on an expedition to North America over 1,000 years ago but was abandoned by his shipmates and died from a lightning strike. He has the ability to manipulate electricity and enjoys combat, especially against Danes; watching TV; and talking about his favorite foods, particularly cod. He has a son named Bjorn, now a ghost on an adjacent property, who married a Danish woman. He is based on Robin the caveman in the original British series.
- Rebecca Wisocky as Henrietta "Hetty" Woodstone, the uptight lady of the manor, Sam's great-great-great-great-aunt, and wife of the original owner of the Woodstone country estate. She takes pride in being wealthy, looks down her nose on the working class and anyone Irish, and experimented with illicit drugs throughout her life, including cocaine and morphine. Her husband cheated on her in life with many different women, while her son Thomas was responsible for Alberta's murder. She is based on Lady Fanny Button in the original British series.
- Román Zaragoza as Sasappis/"Sass", a cynical Lenape Native American, who often serves as the voice of reason for the other ghosts. He enjoys storytelling, stirring up drama, watching TV, and smelling all sorts of food, especially pizza, prepared by the living.
- Hudson Thames (Season 1) and Alex Boniello (Season 2) as the head of Crash, a smooth-talking 1950s-era greaser ghost who was decapitated. He is based on Sir Humphrey Bone in the British version; however, unlike Humphrey, whose head is always present in each appearance, Crash's head goes missing in the pilot episode when Thorfinn accidentally knocks it off his neck. Only his body (played by Matt Keyes) appears until his head is recovered in "Ghost Father of the Bride."
- The cholera victim ghosts: an indeterminate number of ghosts who died during a 19th-century cholera outbreak. Although they can go upstairs if they wish, their sickly appearances disturb the upstairs ghosts, so they spend all their time in the basement and are experts on the house's heating system. They are based on the Plague ghosts in the British version.
- Betsy Sodaro as Cholera Victim Nancy, who becomes Pete's fake girlfriend and lives upstairs briefly.
- Stuart Fink as Cholera Victim Stuart
- Arthur Holden as Cholera Victim Creepy Dirk. When the ghosts decide to elect a representative to petition Sam rather than make requests individually, Creepy Dirk wins after Isaac's attempt to garner their support for his candidacy. He briefly holds the position after Sam rejects the arrangement.

- Nigel Downer as Cholera Victim Nigel
- Cat Lemieux as Cholera Victim Catherine
- Tyler Alvare as Cholera Victim Ralph

- Odessa A'zion as Stephanie, a senior high school student who was murdered on her prom night by a chainsaw killer in 1987. She sleeps in the attic for months at a time, as extended sleep periods are common for ghosts who die in their teen years, and wakes up around the day of her prom night each year.
- Crystle Lightning as Shiki, a Lenape woman on whom Sasappis had a crush in life. As a ghost, she is bound to the land occupied by the publishing office of the Ulster County Review magazine, so Sam and Jay help her establish a long-distance relationship with Sass.

Meanwhile, Sasappis, tired of rooming with Pete, asks the scout leader to be less overly cheerful, and he feigns adopting a more dour and cynical personality.
