With the new season of Ghost Whisperer, the show is going to explore the history of where Melinda lives, the town of Grandview and start to explain her character’s purpose there.
We’ll learn more about Grandview and why the ghosts seem to hunt down our heroine in every episode (and here I thought she had a ghost welcome mat out on her doorstep!).
These add to the developing powers of the dark side in season 3, but are also a frustrating perspective for this writer, since she can only talk ghosts out of doing things and seems relatively powerless to stop anyone from doing evil. That is, unless she gets some new edge to help stop the dark side.
CBS has pointed out that this show is different from other ghost & psychic shows as it is constantly expanding on Hewitt’s character, Melinda. Personally, I see shows like Medium coming over to the Whisperer side of things as the character in that show has started interacting with her apparitions more like Melinda does… but then there are days where it all feels the same, and I’m watching the Medium Whispering People. :-)
CBS is trying to show that Melinda’s life is complicated and sort of has a lot of different facets to it. To be honest, it seems pretty complicated as it is. You try having conversations with ghosts while not looking completely daffy!
Ghost Whisperer returns on Sept. 28 and will air in its regular time slot, Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
