Ahead of the release of the fifth and final series, the Ghosts team has revealed there will be one more trip to Button House.
The creators teased on social media that “there might be one last present under the Christmas tree this year.”
In previous series, the Christmas specials have given more backstory for the ghosts, with audiences getting a glimpse at former politician Julian’s (Simon Farnaby) relationship with his daughter back in series two. Last year’s special saw Scout leader Pat (Jim Howick) receive home videos from the family he left behind. Additionally, in a particularly touching festive moment, renaissance poet Thomas (Mathew Baynton) listened to The Smiths for the very first time.
The trailer for Ghosts’ series five revealed that Alison (Charlotte Richie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe) will be under investigation for the fire in their newly renovated Gatehouse, which was caused by an unfortunate bolt of lightning in series four’s finale. For more information on the final series and the trailer, read our article here.
Ghosts series five will air on BBC One on 6 October on BBC One, and the box set will be released on iPlayer the same day.
The final series of Ghosts starts on Friday... but there might be one last present under the Christmas tree this year #bbcGhosts
