Ghosts Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?

In season 1, New Yorkers Samantha and Jay Arondekar move into their newly inherited countryside mansion and set about converting it into a bed and breakfast. Unbeknownst to them, the property houses several ghosts who died on the grounds in the past millennium. The spooky residents of the mansion are against the couple’s plans and thus try to unsuccessfully scare them away. However, one of their botched attempts causes Samantha to almost die after falling from the stairs.

Samantha survives but gains the ability to see and hear the ghosts, whom she refuses to acknowledge initially. After a few hiccups where the ghosts try to sabotage Jay and Samantha’s plans, they begin warming up to the couple. Samantha introduces the ghosts to social media and the internet, which causes tiny trouble with Jay’s sister, Bela. The Arondekars hold a Viking funeral for Thorfinn, while Hetty tries to escape the mansion in Jay’s body but in vain. Later, Samantha and Jay try to unite Sasappis with the ghost of his long-distance crush, Shiki.

Moreover, Pete comes to terms with his wife and best friend’s betrayal that happened before his death. He eventually falls for Alberta, but she refuses to reciprocate his feelings, causing him to seek the help of Cholera victim Nancy. Elsewhere, Sam reconnects with her mother’s spirit and finds her closure. As the season ends, the group faces some problems created by the ghost of Hetty’s husband, but she eventually banishes him to hell. On the other hand, Sasappis showcases his rich heritage, while Sam makes Thorfinn seek help from a therapist when he experiences night terrors.

Season 2 shall most likely showcase new escapades of the Arondekars and their paranormal buddies and depict whether Pete is finally able to woo Alberta or not. Furthermore, as the bed and breakfast attracts more guests, it shall pose some uproarious challenges for Jay and Samantha. Other story arcs that might be explored include Bela’s newfound belief in the ghosts, Hetty causing more defiant mischief, and the pasts of the ghosts being explored further.
