The Ghost Whisperer is heading to the future.
As the CBS drama readies for an intriguing fifth season, one that will jump the show five years into the future, cast and crew members gathered at Comic-Con last week.
At the event, stars Jennifer Love Hewitt (Melinda), Jamie Kennedy (Eli), Camryn Manheim (Delia) spoke to TV Guide Magazine about their new season, which premieres on September 25.
Enjoy the following excerpts from the interviews:
Hewitt, on Melinda/Eli interaction: I think they’re going to come up with fun stuff for us to do. We got to do a fun scene the other day that was funny and heartfelt. Eli and Melinda are sort of partners in crime and they share their weird gifts.
Manheim, on where her character is at: My son is dating girls and sucking face and I’m not super happy about that.... Delia has rented the store next to Same As It Never Was, and has started her real estate business. She’s also dating several men.
Kennedy, on his character's parents: My dad and I have a strange relationship. My mother and I have a good relationship. The episode I’m filming now is crazy. The bomb’s keep getting dropped. It’s something that’s either going to work or people are going to think this is really weird. It’s something that’s not addressed normally in television.
Producer Ian Sander, on Melinda's son: He’s a special child. He has the gifts that he has and much more. He can see things she can’t, and sense things she can’t. What that lets us do is reveal a new dimension we haven’t seen before. There are beings on this other plane who are wonderful, magical forces of good. And some are the direct opposite. There’s a new enemy that we’ve never grappled with before. Also, sometimes there are things that don’t want to be seen. Shadows perhaps.
