Ghostwriter Reboot Heads To Apple TV+

If, like me, you were a kid that grew up in the late 90s-early 00s, then chances are you saw Ghostwriter.

The series followed a bunch of kids in Brooklyn who solved mysteries with the help of their spirit pal, who could communicate through using letters whether it be on books or a computer screen. It was an awesome show. One that is fondly remembered by those of us who grew up watching it.

It was cancelled pretty abruptly after funding for the series ran out.

Like many nostalgic properties, it looks like Ghostwriter is getting a reboot.

According to TVLine, a reboot version of the popular series is heading to Apple TV+ on Nov. 1st along with adult dramas such as The Morning ShowSee, and Dickinson. 

The series also veers from the original plot. Rather than just dealing with neighborhood mysteries, this series will kind of combine with Wishbone a little and have the kids meet ficitional characters.

The simple synopsis is that  “four kids who are brought together by a mysterious ghost in a neighborhood bookstore, and must team up to release fictional characters from works of literature.”

So we’ll see how that goes.

The original series ran for 74 episodes on PBS and proved so popular that it was briefly revived on CBS as The New Ghostwriter Mysteries, which only lasted one season.

Apple TV+ will only be for $4.99 per month USD. So if you’re interested on reliving your nostalgia, then it’s not a bad price. It will be available Nov. 1.

In the meantime, watch the opening and relive your childhoods.
