The BBC has confirmed filming is now underway on the second series of sitcom Ghosts.

Launched in April 2019, the BBC One comedy focuses on a young couple, Alison (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe), who unexpectedly inherit a grand country estate only to find it is both falling apart and overrun with ghosts.

Crumbling country pile Button House is home to a troupe of restless spirits who have died there over the centuries. Each ghost very much a product of their time, resigned to squabbling with each other for eternity over the most inane of daily gripes.

The show is created by the original stars of Horrible Histories and creators of Yonderland: Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond.

The writers also star in the show as the most prominent ghosts, who only Alison can see.

Lolly Adefope and Katy Wix, who play other long-deceased inhabitants of the house, are also returning for the new run.

The BBC ordered both Series 2 and Series 3 last Summer, following the success of the first run. The six-part series attracted a consolidated series average of 3.7m viewers, which the BBC says makes it the highest rating comedy series on UK television in 2019.

The creators say: "We were thrilled with how warmly Series 1 was received and can't wait to creak open the doors of Button House again and share another clutch of ghost stories."

The first day of filming was on Thursday 13th January, as revealed in a Tweet posted by Baynton:

Series 2 of Ghosts will be shown on BBC One later this year.

The first series is currently available to watch on BBC iPlayer
