Disney has announced that they’ve ordered a second season of animated buddy-comedy “The Ghost and Molly McGee”. This announcement comes just weeks ahead of its series premiere on the Disney Channel on Friday 1st October (9:35 p.m. EDT).
New episodes of the first season will be rolling out Saturdays (9:00 a.m. ET) through to November 27th on Disney Channel, with new episodes being made available in October on Disney+ in the United States. We should expect another batch of episodes to be released on Disney+ at a later date.
This new series has been created and executive produced by Bill Motz and Bob Roth (“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures”), along with executive producer Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”), the series follows tween optimist Molly, who lives to make the world a better place, and grumpy ghost Scratch, whose job is to spread misery.
The first season will also welcome guest stars Kelsey Grammer (“Cheers”), Natasha Rothwell (“Insecure”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”).
