During the recent Apple press conference that saw the reveal of the new iPhone, which at this point is a pretty standard reveal year to year, new information was also released for the upcoming streaming service, Apple TV+. It was announced that Apple TV+ would launch at the price of £4.99 per month, while Apple also discussed some of its content. One of the announcements was that Ghostwriter, a children’s TV show that ran during the mid ’90s, will be getting a reboot.
The original Ghostwriter was an educational show with the ambition of helping children with their reading and writing, while solving a mysterious case along the way. It eventually got cancelled due to a lack of funding, despite the critical acclaim the show garnered due to its realism and diversity. According to Deadline, the reboot will explore a different route to the original. The new show will feature a haunted bookstore that has been unleashing fictional characters to run riot in the real world, causing four children to work with Ghostwriter to solve the mystery and get them back.
Ghostwriter is set to be available on November 1, the launch day of the streaming service. Brett Dalton, who appeared in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, has been announced to star, with four newcomers Amadi Chapata, Justin Sanchez, Isaac Arellanes, and Hannah Levinson. Hopefully a trailer will follow in the coming weeks to shed some light on this darker re-imagining.
