Apple TV+ has just released the official teaser trailer for Ghostwriter, the streaming service’s reboot of the 90s supernatural mystery series.
As far as teasers go this was a pretty good one. It introduced viewers to the main cast, and explained that something wasn’t right in the bookstore. Of course, we know that it’s Ghostwriter, a ghost that likes to write.
The original series ran on PBS for three seasons from 1992-95 and was a huge critical success with the goal of the series to teach reading and writing skills to elementary and middle school children. It also had multi-episode arcs, encouraging viewers to follow the clues across episodes to solve the mystery.
It’s unsure if the new Ghostwriter will also be employing multi-episode arcs, but given the nature of a streaming service where you’ll forget when one episode ended and another began, differentiating episodes can become tricky. I don’t know how many times I’d try to figure out what happened in each episode of Daredevil, because I had watched so many in a row and they had all blurred together. Hopefully, if Ghostwriter does employ a continuing storyline, they’ll be able to make each episode stand-out on its own as well.
Ghostwriter premieres November 1, 2019 on Apple TV+.
