Ghost Whisperer ran for five seasons from 2005 to 2010 on CBS. It was one of many supernatural dramas that appeared in the mid-2000s, but it managed to attract a dedicated, loyal fan base. Ghost Whisperer also inspired a video game, a graphic novel, and several novel adaptations. Ghost Whisperer was something of a cult hit, but it received strong fan ratings and averaged 10 million viewers during the first and fourth seasons. Some of the cast members have returned to film, but most have moved on to animation, sitcoms, or genre TV. Even though it ended 9 years ago, Ghost Whisperer still stands out as a popular supernatural drama with memorable characters and a strong supporting cast. The series is currently streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime.
Since the show ended, the cast members have moved on to a wide variety of films, shows, and projects. Some have remained with CBS productions, and others have branched out into other genres and networks. Here is a list of their recent projects, shows, and movies.
