Peacock Announces Live-Action ‘Casper’ Series

Peacock streaming service is giving 90’s kids a reason to rejoice! Our favorite friendly ghost Casper has his own live-action television series in the work for Peacock.

Way back in the 1940s, Casper the Friendly Ghost was first released in animated shorts and a comic series. Years later, viewers saw the first live-action version of Casper alongside Christina Ricci. The movie soon became a favorite of fans and spawned several more films. Still today, around Halloween time, you can find Casper on television.

It seems this series will have a different tone than what we have seen before. This will be a complete reimagining of the origins of Casper as a horror adventure mystery type of genre, via Variety. The small town of Eternal Falls will have an awakening when a new family arrives. The storyline will explore coming of age and the question of what it means to be alive. Soon Casper will find himself uncovering a mystery and secrets that have been buried for one hundred years.
