‘Casper the Friendly Ghost’ Live-Action Series in Development at Peacock

The first official live-action outing since 1995

Beloved kid ghost Casper is making his return to tv screens thanks to NBC. The network is busy developing a live-action series for their streaming service Peacock.  A new origin story will be provided for this coming-of-age horror drama. Read on to know the full details.

About the New Casper Series

Casper
Universal Pictures

The new series gives a new origins to friendly kid ghost, and explores what it means to be alive. It begins with a new family moving into the small town of Eternal Falls, Casper’s home. He soon finds himself in the midst of a mystery that surfaced after more than a hundred years. It will draw inspiration on the tone of the 1995 classic, but there are reportedly no further connections.

The movie earned well in the box office, but reviews were mixed at that time. For a character that was introduced to entertain children, the movie did have dark themes. However, if you ignore the critics, it’s still a very enjoyable movie.

The Character’s History

Casper
Universal Pictures

The character has entertained pop culture for the past eighty years, after originally appearing in animated shorts in the 1940s. He later appeared on books after being acquired by Harvey Comics. Afterwards, he appeared in multiple television shows like The New Casper Cartoon Show, Matty’s Funday Funnies, Casper and the Angels. The last major show we got was The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper and Casper’s Scare School. The property slowly got transferred to Universal studios.

We will soon be getting information on the casting, and let’s hope it serves as nostalgia for the old fans while still entertaining the new ones.
