Ghosts revolves around married couple Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), who move into a country mansion that they have inherited. They discover that it's not only decrepit, but haunted by the ghosts of persons who died on premises! Sam can hear and see the ghosts, while Jay cannot. 

The ghosts include the flashy Prohibition-era jazz singer Alberta (Danielle Pinnock), gay Revolutionary War Captain Isaac Higgintoot (Brandon Scott Jones), Pinecone Trooper leader Pete (Richie Moriarty) and Sam's ancestor Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky). 

When Ghosts season 2 kicks off, Sam and Jay have finally succeeded in converting the mansion into a B&B. Now, she enlists the help of the ghosts to get a good review from some highly critical guests.
