Who are all the ghosts on the CBS show “Ghosts”?

Have you ever been to an Airbnb and thought, “Hey, this place is for Of course haunted” but in a non-alarming way? You are probably not alone. There are plenty of haunted hotels and B&Bs around the world, which is basically the main plot of the new CBS show. Ghosts.

Based on the BBC series of the same name (which you can also stream on HBO Max), the show stars Rose McIver (from the CW series iZombie) and Utkarsh Ambudkar as young couple Sam and Jay, who inherit an old mansion which they decide to turn into a quaint bed and breakfast. The only thing is… the mansion is a fixer. And when Sam, played by McIver, has a near-death experience, she begins to see all the ghosts living in the house. And since it’s in upstate New York, there are plenty of them. Some of them have “powers” and some of them are just annoying, so it can be hard to keep track. Here is a breakdown of the characters.

Captain Isaac Higgintoot, played by Brandon Scott Jones, is a gay Revolutionary War officer who died in the field after the siege of Fort Ticonderoga (geographically, that makes sense!). He often assumes the role of leader, even when no one wants him to.

Then there’s Pete Martino played by Richie Moriarty, a Girl Scout troop leader who died in the field in the summer of 1985 after being shot in the neck with an arrow by an untrained Girl Scout. Heety Woodstone, played by Rebecca Wisocky, is the lady of the mansion and the original owner of the mansion and the grounds. Her cause of death is unknown, but she is Sam’s great-great-great-great-grandmother.

Asher Grodman plays Trevor Lefkowitz, a young Wall Street trader who died without pants in the late 90s. Trevor actually possesses the ability to touch certain objects in the real world. Sheila Carrasco plays Flower, a young woman who was attacked in the field by a bear while trying to get out of a cult. Then there’s Alberta Haynes, played by Daniella Pinnock, a Prohibition-era singer whose voice can be heard by “the living” aka, not the dead.

The two oldest ghosts are a Viking named Thor, played by Devan Chandler, who can sometimes control the lights in the house, and Sasappis, played by Roman Zaragoza, a Native American Lenape. Of course, no character breakdown would be complete without mentioning the group of dead cholera ghosts who live in the basement.

There seem to be other ghosts living on the land, but these are the main set of spirits, who often have their own plots and plots that involve them recounting their time as humans. While many of their deaths remain a mystery, viewers will be happy to know that the show has been renewed for a second season, so there will be more ghost puns to come. You can stream all episodes of the first season now on Paramount+.
