Classic ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie Characters Join New ‘Afterlife’ TV Series

The “Ghostbusters” franchise has inspired scores of great movies and television shows over the years.

Most recently, the franchise has spawned a children’s trilogy titled “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” And now comes “Ghostbusters: Afterlife TV Series,” which is bringing back familiar characters from the original films — but on a new medium.

“It’s going to be a bunch of the same characters — ‘Ghostbusters’ really hasn’t changed in 29 years since the original came out,” executive producer Richard Allen Davis told EW. “And then the new characters that you’ll see, they’re little kids. They’re, like, two- and three-year-olds who live in a haunted house with ghosts that are alive, too.”

The series may bring new life to the “Ghostbusters” property, but it also offers a sweet nostalgia infusion to longtime fans of the franchise.

“It’s really just an adventure show,” Davis said. “If you watch all the movies, you see a lot of characters trying to find their way back into the real world after getting zapped. And I think that’s kind of what this show is.”
