Apple TV+ today revealed the trailer for the third season of the Emmy Award-winning kids and family series, “Ghostwriter,” a reimagining of the hit early nineties series from Sesame Workshop. Premiering globally Friday, October 21, the all-new season of the modern-day “Ghostwriter” will feature an entirely new cast and epic literary adventure.
When a ghost haunts a bookstore and releases fictional characters into the real world, a group of friends works to solve an exciting mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business. While tackling the big mystery, the young heroes embark on six curious adventures with characters inspired by L. Frank Baum’s story “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”; author Pablo Cartaya’s “¡Leo! El Magnífico”; Beverly Cleary’s novel “The Mouse and the Motorcycle”; Mick Jagger and Keith Richard’s song “She’s A Rainbow”; E.B. White’s book “Charlotte’s Web”; and Jewell Parker Rhodes’ tale “Bayou Magic.”
Starring Princess K. Mapp (“Sydney to the Max,” “The Unicorn”), Nour Assaf (“The Casagrandes”) and Daire McLeod (“Danger Force”), season three of “Ghostwriter” will also feature notable guest stars including Randall Park (“WandaVision”) as Lion in “The Ghost of Oz” journey, Jay Baruchel (“This Is the End”) as Ralph The Mouse in “The Ghost, The Mouse and The Motorcycle” quest, Emmy Award-winner Jean Smart (“Hacks”) as Charlotte and Iain Armitage (“Young Sheldon”) as Wilbur in “The Ghost’s Web” adventure.

Johnson and Andrew Orenstein with Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny directing five episodes from the season.
