Disney Channel’s amazing uplifting animated series, The Ghost and Molly McGee, is in the full strides of its second season. This season introduces a whole family of BFFs to the McGees, the Chen Family. Each member of the Chen Family perfectly complements a member of the McGee family, in perfect friendship and maybe even a little more in Molly’s case. However, when things seem to good to be true, they often are, as despite the Chen Family being the McGee Family’s new BFFs, they’re also renowned ghost hunters! How could the perfect friends have such opposing viewpoints on ghosts? Series creators Bill Motz and Bob Roth give us some clues.

How Much Backstory of the Chen Family Will We See in The Ghost and Molly McGee Season 2?

RELATED: The Ghost and Molly McGee Creators Wanted to Make A Show About Friends Not 2 People Who Hate Each Other The Illuminerdi: You didn’t go too deep into it in the opening episode, you do set up the Chens’ back story. They’re famous MeToubers. They obviously don this [ghost hunting] before. Can you tease how much of their origin we’re going to get to see?
Bob Roth: You’re going to see some hints of it. Bill Motz: What is it? You’re going to see why? Bob Roth: Yeah, you’re going to see definitely why. Okay. We can’t say too much without spoiling. Bill Motz: But. Bob Roth: Yeah, you’re going to learn what was the inciting incident in the screenwriter talk for the Chens to become the ghost hunting Chens. Bill Motz: And then you will also get a little sense of that MeTube community of people who have shows on and other ghost hunters and some other dynamics that go on in that world, too. Bob Roth: We have an episode where we go to a paranormal convention, which is super fun. Bill Motz and Bob Roth, Creators and Executive Producers of The Ghost and Molly McGee
