Recurring

  • Hudson Thames as Crash, a 1950s-era James Dean style ghost who was decapitated. The character has so far only appeared in 'Pilot' and briefly in the background of 'Halloween', but CBS has suggested he may return in future episodes.
  • Odessa A'Zion as Stephanie- An 80s mean girl who died on the property after getting killed on her Prom Night. She spends months on end sleeping in the attic hence the nickname "Attic Girl". She's an Composite Character of Jemima (Being a minor and not interacting with the ghost adults very much) and The Hitchhiker Ghost Alison briefly encounter in the British Show.

In addition to the main ghosts, the mansion houses a group of ghosts who died of cholera and occupy the basement. Their sickly appearances disturb the upstairs ghosts. The total number is uncertain, but there are at least six, three of which have been named within the series (Stuart, Nancy, and Creepy Dirk), with the remaining three being listed in the credits. They are based on the Plague ghosts of the original British series.

  • Stuart Fink as Cholera Victim Stuart
  • Arthur Holden as Cholera Victim Creepy Dirk
  • Cody Crain as Cholera Victim Cody
  • Nigel Downer as Cholera Victim Nigel
  • Cat Lemieux as Cholera Victim Catherine
  • Betsy Sodaro as Cholera Victim Nancy

There are also British Ghosts who died in the Revolutionary War and live in the shed on the property as that has been the agreement since who war ended and as an result know Isaac. They keep most to themselves and only come up to the main house to redraw the boarder lines every few years although the main house ghosts say its only for Nigel to flirt with Isaac.

  • Chad Andrews as Baxter (The Flutist of the group)
  • Christian Daoust as Jenkins
  • John Hartman as Nigel Chessum
