If you love spooky fun supernatural TV shows like Ghosted as much as I do, you definitely need to add these 10 shows to your to-watch list! Check them out and tell me your favorites!
I’ve always been a huge fan of shows that mix the supernatural with a bit of comedy. While most of my favorites are heavier on the spooky and lighter on the laughs, Ghosted takes the opposite approach- more laughs than horror. Think along the lines of Ghostbusters. It’s a supernatural comedy television series that airs on FOX, making its premiere on October 1, 2017. The series showcases Leroy Wright (Craig Robinson), a paranormal skeptic and Max Jennifer (Adam Scott), a paranormal believer, who team together to investigate paranormal occurrences around Los Angeles, California. Here are some other awesome TV shows like Ghosted.

4. Ghost Wars
If you’re looking for shows like Ghosted that are a bit heavier on the spooky side, Ghost Wars is the one to watch. This paranormal, action television series has aired on SYFY, for 1 season so far, premiering on October 5, 2017. The series centers on Roman, an outcast in a remote Alaskan town, who must save the town residents from paranormal forces. The problem? The townspeople aren’t too kind to paranormal people! If your town was overrun by demons, I bet you’d feel the same way, though.
Grimm is one of my all-time favorite shows like Ghosted. It’s a fantasy, mystery, supernatural television series that aired on NBC for 6 seasons, from 2011 to 2017. The series showcases Nick, a homicide investigator, who discovers that he’s a Grimm, a guardian-like man with the ability to spot Wesen (aka monsters and other paranormal creatures). While most of his ancestors simply beheaded the Wesen they came across, Nick does things a bit different. In fact, his best friends are a blutbad (kind of like a werewolf) and a Fuchsbau (a fox-like creature).

The series centers around Myka and Pete, Secret Service Agents, who are assigned to a covert area that contains supernatural artifacts.
