Disney orders second season of ‘The Ghost and Molly McGee’ animated series

Disney Channel has ordered a second season of animated buddy-comedy The Ghost and Molly McGee ahead of its series premiere on 1 October 2021 on Disney Channel, following the debut of the new Disney Channel original movie Under Wraps.

Created and executive produced by Bill Motz and Bob Roth (LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures), along with executive producer Steve Loter (Kim Possible), the series follows tween optimist Molly, who lives to make the world a better place, and grumpy ghost Scratch, whose job is to spread misery.

The first season will also welcome guest stars Kelsey Grammer (Cheers), Natasha Rothwell (Insecure), Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) and Jane Lynch (Glee). New episodes roll out Saturdays at 9 am through 27 November on Disney Channel, with episodes available in October on Disney+.

Joining the previously announced lead voice cast Ashly Burch (Molly McGee) and Dana Snyder (Scratch), the additional main series voice cast includes Jordan Klepper (Klepper) as the voice of Pete, Molly’s anxiously idealistic father; Sumalee Montano (The Lost Symbol) as the voice of Sharon and Grandma Nin, Molly’s creatively pragmatic mother and adoring grandmother, respectively; and Michaela Dietz (Steven Universe) as the voice of Darryl, Molly’s mischievously entrepreneurial brother.

Additional season one guest stars include Jenifer Lewis (ABC’s black-ish), Danny Trejo (Machete), Aparna Nancherla (Corporate), Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Patton Oswalt (Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!), Jessica Keenan Wynn (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) and Sean Giambrone (ABC’s The Goldbergs).

A trio of Chibi Tiny Tales shorts, featuring Chibi-style versions of Molly and Scratch embarking on wild adventures, including a visit to The Haunted Mansion, will begin rolling out in October on Disney Channel, Disney Channel YouTube and DisneyNOW. Coinciding with the series premiere, DisneyNOW will launch a time-management game, Bandshell Boo-nanza!, in which players must perform a variety of fun-filled tasks in order to help Molly throw the best multiday talent show ever.

A digital EP, music from The Ghost and Molly McGee featuring five original songs from the series, is set for release 1 October on Walt Disney Records. Additionally, an exclusive The Ghost and Molly McGee design will launch on Amazon and Disney Channel this fall.
