14 TV Characters Who Would Make Great Ghosts

at .  Updated at .

Shows are filled to the brim with supernatural creatures, but the one thing I've found to be missing? Memorable ghosts. 

While a few ghosts have made a name for themselves on the small screen, there simply isn't enough of them.

That's a shame especially since ghost stories are a staple during the Halloween season when you're looking for a fright!

We've brainstormed a list of TV characters who we think would make awesome ghosts and who we wouldn't mind getting a visit from in the afterlife. 

Since this list is so arbitrary, comment us with characters you think would make great ghost side-kicks! 

1. Joey Tribbiani - Friends

Joey Tribbiani - Friends
Paper! Snow! A Ghost! You're always hearing about how haunting and damned ghosts are, but why do we rarely hear of funny ghosts who just run around town with you and continuously cracks jokes? Sure, people would look at you weird, but Joey Tribbiani is hilarious -- dead or alive.

2. Chanel # 3 - Scream Queens

Chanel # 3 - Scream Queens
There would never be a dull moment with Chanel #3 around. She would probably pop up and monotonously hit you with some hard-hitting gossip. She'd be your eyes and ears on the ground, though I don't know if I'd ever trust her advice. She does, however, have some experience with the undead after dating Cassidy, a doctor who was technically a ghost since he suffered from a strange mental condition known as Cotard's syndrome. Oh, and she loves ghost stories!

3. Rogelio de la Vega - Jane the Virgin

Rogelio de la Vega - Jane the Virgin
Rogelio doesn't really think before he speaks; therefore, it would probably be in his best interest to be a ghost. He would be able to spy on everyone, say what's on his mind at all times, and wouldn't have to worry about his complex beauty regimen. Plus, he'd never run out of stories, and would probably still tweet from the afterlife.

4. Ravi - iZombie

Ravi - iZombie
Something tells me, Ravi would get a huge kick out of being dead. As a science enthusiast, he would probably run experiments on himself and find the cure to death. That is after he finished developing the cure for zombieism.

5. Jack - This Is Us

Jack - This Is Us
We practically see Jack as a ghost for most of This Is Us, and we don't mind it because at least he's around. He gives great advice, so it would be in your best interest to have him talk over your shoulder and lead you down a moral path. Not to mention you'd always have someone to grab ice-cream and watch football with.

6. Eleanor Shellstrop - The Good Place

Eleanor Shellstrop - The Good Place
Holy fork! Eleanor would be a hoot to have around as a ghost. She does what she wants to do, says what she wants to say and is unapologetic about all of it. Sure, you'd probably get into a lot of trouble if you listened to her on a daily basis, but at least there would never be a dull moment. And in your downtime, you guys could, like, discuss ethics or something.

7. Jughead - Riverdale

Jughead - Riverdale
Not only would you have control of the Southside, but you'd be able to crack every mystery in town thanks to your trusted ghost friend, Jughead! Imagine how many revenge pranks you could play on the Ghoulies and Hiram Lodge.

8. Dan Humphrey - Gossip Girl

Dan Humphrey - Gossip Girl
Oh, lonely boy. Dan Humphrey ran in the popular crowd, but he was so incognito about what he did on his downtime, no one ever picked up on the fact that he was the elusive Gossip Girl. If your goal is to have a ghost that can get the hottest gossip around town, Dan is your ghost man!

9. Elijah Mikealson - The Originals

Elijah Mikealson - The Originals
Who wouldn't want the voice of reason as their ghost? Elijah stood by Klaus' side for centuries, guiding him towards the right path in life. We wouldn't mind having an inner voice that looked out for us and gave us sound advice.

10. Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot
Mr. Robot isn't a ghost but an embodiment of Elliot when he was hallucinating. However, if he was a ghost, you'd always have someone to blame your bad decisions on. "It wasn't me, it was Mr. Robot," sounds like a decent excuse.

11. Alison DiLaurentis - Pretty Little Liars

Alison DiLaurentis - Pretty Little Liars
Alison had a way of making everyone feel really special. She may have been manipulative in the beginning but by the end of A's game, she came out a strong woman who we wouldn't mind having as part of our squad in ghost form. She was always looking out for her friends, checking in on them, and making sure they're taken care of, even when she was supposed to remain undetected. We'd love to channel that inner badass.

12. Michael Cordero - Jane the Virgin

Michael Cordero - Jane the Virgin
Again, Michael also has experience being a ghost because up until this point, we all thought he was dead. Yes, we have to wait till the premiere of Jane the Virgin Season 5 to find out if Michael is really Michael, however, we'd keep him around because he's caring, charismatic and quite silly.

13. Miranda Collins - Ravenswood

Miranda Collins - Ravenswood
Out of all the characters on this list, Miranda Collins actually was a ghost. And while her time as a ghost wasn't exactly pleasant, she's still the most qualified. Plus, she could always be someones ghost GF and technically, that isn't cheating on your real GF, right Caleb?

14. Ichabod Crane - Sleepy Hollow

Ichabod Crane - Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod has experience with the Headless Horseman, which means he's familiar with supernatural forces. He was able to assimilate into the modern world rather quickly after being dead for hundreds of years, so I doubt he'd have any trouble as a ghost. His wittiness knows no bounds and neither does his historical knowledge, which I'm sure would come in handy if you're trying to ace a history quiz.
