It appears that series 5 -all episodes -are available on BBC iPlayer to stream now in the UK.
I know what I’ll be watching tonight.
It will be bittersweet though…as it’s the final series.

[hands] [hands] [hands] Ok- it wasn’t what I was expecting- but it seems to me the door has been left ajar for possible further episodes
0 0 grumbles crown grumbles  November 28, 2023
Or if not further episodes- might they have some xmas specials?🤞

Love this show, absolutely brilliant. Delighted to know that there’ll be season 5! Prefer the British version to the US because the cast seems more diverse age wise, which makes it more interesting imo.
0 7 Jill Ward  November 19, 2022
I too am looking forward to a 5th season of Ghosts. We have never had The Ghosts Christmas Special aired in Australia, please please show it on ABC television
0 5 James  November 8, 2022
❤ just love this show,especially Robin, remember the clip see you Tuesday, nearly died laughing hurry up season 5

While you’re waiting for series 5- the US version of ghosts is available to download now on Sky. It is a wonderful delight-and our ‘Ghosts’ are part of the production team. It’s SO good.

How can I watch season 4 I live in the states
1 1 grumbles crown Tasha Bouvia  December 25, 2022
Do you have Acorn TV in the states? It might be there? Or BBC iplayer?
Or any UK streaming service?

I’ve been told if you use a VPN-(Virtual Private Network)-and set your home country to UK- you can watch it like that. BBC will treat you as being in the UK-and you can watch it. I have never actually tried this -but people who know more than me advised me to try it.

I am totally invested in ‘Ghosts’. I love the characters and I look forward to learning about their past in Button House. This is definitely the best TV the BBC has produced in years. If they are crazy enough to cancel it then I hope it gets picked up by another platform (Apple, Prime etc). Keep the ghosts on TV!! ❤
0 9 Laura  November 6, 2022
[smile] my husband and I have really enjoyed watching this series - lovely humour, no swearing or sex. Something to easily chill and watch!
0 12 Jools  October 30, 2022
One of the best BBC productions ever… swearing, no sex, just amazing storylines and an incredible cast & crew.
Keep this gem going guys.
0 12 Colin  October 23, 2022
Come on season 5 please. We want more we want more we want more and we pay for it so get it done. Many thanks
0 2 Lorraine Colin  November 12, 2022
Absolutely Love Ghosts. It’s the best series in a very long time. I have enjoyed watching it and even binge watched again on iplayer can’t get enough. Come on BBC let’s have more and more. Thank you so much for the great entertainment this series has provided. Keep it up.

0 9 grumbles crown  November 16, 2021
[bigsmile] I feel an unexpected huge surge of relief that there will be series 4! I’m more invested in the characters than I realised. I wonder if we’ll get a Xmas Special again? Last years with Julian thinking of his own child was so sweet-and unmistakably Christmassy without laying it on with a trowel. ?
0 18 Sapphire  September 6, 2021
I absolutely cannot wait for a forth series of Ghosts, it is totally addictive, the characters are VERY well acted and the plot lines are imaginative and funny. A superb cast.
0 10 Cassie  September 5, 2021
Please let there be a season four of Ghosts! It is clever and funny, we need more shows like this on TV.
0 11 Pen  August 30, 2021
Such a brillaint show, I’m so excited for another series, it’s got so much more to the story and the cast are hilarious. It’s something that me and my 10 year old son watch together.
0 13 grumbles crown  August 20, 2021
