Producer Previews Season Five of The Ghost Whisperer

by at . Comments

When The Ghost Whisperer returns this fall, the CBS drama will look a bit different.

Don't worry, Jennifer Love Hewitt will still be her gorgeous self. But she may show signs of a gray hair or two.

That's because the series will jump ahead more than five years. This is mainly meant to speed up the development of Jim and Melinda's unique son, as producer P.K. Simmons confirmed on his blog this week:

"This season's big story is going to be driven by Melinda and Jim's new little guy, Aiden. Carl the Watcher told Melinda that her son would be able to do what she did, "and much, much more" - and he wasn't lying. From the first episode... it will become apparent what some of those gifts are. And that's because, yes, we're jumping five years ahead."

This can be tricky territory. Let's hope the show knows what it's doing.
