Supernatural drama fanatics remember the 2000s hit television series, Ghost Whisperer with Jennifer Love Hewitt as Melinda Gordon risking her happiness to help those in limbo.

Melinda, a human paranormal detector, could communicate with the earthbound spirits who clung to the living due to unresolved business. With the help of her best friend Delia Banks (Camryn Manheim) and husband Jim Clancy (David Conrad), Melinda helped the dead find peace.

The American show was a huge success, running from 2005 to 2010.

The fifth and final season jumped forward five years in time, introducing the son of Melinda and Jim. Following its end, Ghost Whisperer cast members including Christoph Sanders, Jamie Kennedy, Aisha Tyler and Jay Mohr continued on with their careers.

However, even after 13 years since its end, many Ghost Whisperer fans are holding onto the hope the show will revive. It turns out fans aren’t the only ones open to a Ghost Whisperer reboot.

Jennifer, who has been busy portrayed Maddie Buckley on ABC’s 9-1-1, revealed while speaking as a guest on Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast, she would return to the beloved series in a heartbeat.

“No, I would do Ghost Whisperer,” Jennifer responds without hesitation.

“It was one of my favourite jobs. Melinda Gordon was hands down one of my favourite characters I’ve ever played, if not my favourite. I would love to do it.”

After five seasons, Ghost Whisperer was abruptly cancelled due to ratings which outraged fans. In 2010, the CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler told E Online it wasn’t an easy decision.

“It’s sad, but shows don’t stay on the air forever. It was surprising to us, too,” she said.

At the time, the Ghost Whisperer’s executive producers Kim Moses and Ian Sander issued a statement which read:

“After five wonderful seasons and over 100 episodes, we are disappointed to announce Ghost Whisperer will not be returning for a sixth season. We’ve had an incredible experience and owe a debt of gratitude to everyone involved.”
