CBS’s hit series Ghosts set to make San Diego Comic-Con its haunting ground.
Ghosts is television’s number one new series and number one comedy on Paramount+, and is now set to make its San Diego Comic-Con debut with a panel, activation, and Web3 Metaverse experience. Not only is it the first time the series will be attending the con, but it marks the first title to boast a Web3 Metaverse experience at San Diego Comic-Con. There have been a number of immersive experiences, and of course VR Con, but this is a first and exciting foray into the Web3 Metaverse.

The full cast, including “livings” Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, as well as “ghosts” Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, Sheila Carrasco, Rebecca Wisocky and Devan Chandler Long, and executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, will take part in a panel discussion from 1:00-2:00pm on Thursday, July 21 in Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center. The panel will be moderated by series guest star Matt Walsh and will treat fans with never-before-seen footage.
As part of CBS’s “Summer of GHOSTS” immersive marketing campaign honoring the “recently departed” first season and its upcoming sophomore season this fall, GHOSTS will show up in San Diego with Pinecone Trooper Pete’s “Friend Zone,” an activation with a campsite feel in honor of scout leader ghost Pete, whose unfortunate archery accident left him with an arrow through his neck for eternity. The activation will be set up at the Interactive Zone at Petco Park from July 21-24, and will feature a “scare-free” archery activation – but nothing is what it seems at this campsite setup on ‘the lawn’ of The Woodstone Mansion – the show’s setting and home to the ghosts.
Fans can connect with Ghosts and ‘the other side’ through psychic mediums and programming that’ll give attendees insight into their past, present, and future lives.
Fans who can’t make it to San Diego can still enjoy the GHOSTS experience in the Metaverse, which, beginning on July 21, will take fans on an immersive journey through the haunted Woodstone Mansion to solve puzzles, undertake quests and earn limited edition, collectible NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens). The GHOSTS mansion was meticulously recreated using actual blueprints and features surprising interactions with the show’s main characters.
The one-hour premiere will be seamless with back-to-back episodes. Pictured (L-R ) Rose McIver as Samantha and Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay Photo: Cliff Lipson/CBS 2020 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
