“Ghostwriter” Stars Nour Assaf, Princess K. Mapp & Daire McLeod On The Apple TV+ Show’s New Season & The Original Series

In the Emmy Award-winning series Ghostwriter — a reimagining of the 1992 hit series from Sesame Workshop — 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 & The Motorcycle, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ song “She’s A Rainbow,” E.B. White’s book Charlotte’s Web, and Jewell Parker Rhodes’ tale Bayou Magic. The show is set to return for a third season later this month on October 21, 2022 with an entirely-new cast and a new adventure.

Starring Princess K. Mapp (Sydney To The Max, The Unicorn), Nour Assaf (The Casagrandes) and Daire McLeod (Danger Force), season three of Ghostwriter also features its fair share of notable guest stars, including Randall Park, Jay Baruchel, Emmy Award-winner Jean Smart and Iain Armitage. The Apple TV+ series was developed for television by J.J. Johnson and Emmy Award-winning Andrew Orenstein with Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny directing its first episode. Matheny and Orenstein executive produce the series alongside Johnson, Christin Simms, Blair Powers for Sinking Ship Entertainment, and Kay Wilson Stallings for the aforementioned Sesame Workshop.
