Staff Reporter | On 18, Sep 2020
Ghostwriter will return to Apple TV+ this October for a second season.
A reimagining of the 1992 hit series from Sesame Workshop, the modern-day series maintains a city-based, multicultural cast, inviting children aged 6 to 11 to see themselves on screen as they learn to appreciate a range of new and classic literature. In its second season, the series’ young heroes work to save their bookstore and discover the true identity of the Ghostwriter while introducing audiences to fresh tales like “Malia and the Magic Paintbrush” and “The Cobalt Mask,” and familiar literary characters including Dr. Watson of “Sherlock Holmes” fame.
The series was presented with the Outstanding Children’s or Family Viewing Programming Award at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys, making Apple TV+ the first streaming service to win a Daytime Emmy in its first year of eligibility. Now, it’s coming back for a second chapter, with Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny returning as the writer and director and PGA-nominated Andrew Orenstein serving as showrunner. Sesame Workshop’s executive vice president of Creative and Production Kay Wilson Stallings is also on board as executive producer.
Season 2 will premiere on 9th October, with all episodes expected to land at once.
A subscription to Apple TV+ costs £4.99 a month.
