Disney's Bunk'd Returns June 10 for Season 6; Paramount+ to Be Exclusive SVOD Home of Ghosts

Bunk'd

The long-running hit comedy series Bunk'd will return for its sixth season on Friday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. Disney Channel also announced a pickup of five additional episodes, bringing the total to 30 episodes for the sixth installment of Bunk'd. A spinoff of the Disney Channel fan-favorite comedy Jessie (2011-2015), Bunk'd revolves around the hilarious adventures of the campers and counselors at Maine's rustic Camp Kikiwaka. Series regulars Miranda May (Lou), Trevor Tordjman (Parker), Mallory James Mahoney (Destiny) and Israel Johnson (Noah) will return for the new installment set at a dude ranch in the Wild West. They will be joined by new cast members Shiloh Verrico (Country Comfort) as Winnie, Luke Busey (Cobweb) as Jake, and newcomer Alfred Lewis as Bill. Erin Dunlap will continue to serve as executive producer and showrunner of the series, with May also landing an executive producer role. As in previous seasons, May will continue to direct select episodes.

Season six, titled Bunk'd: Learning the Ropes, begins as Lou, Parker, Destiny and Noah arrive at the soon-to-be Kikiwaka Ranch in Dusty Tush, Wyoming, where Lou must convince the surly owner, a.k.a. The Marshal, to officially sell the property to her. In the meantime, counselors Noah and Destiny have their hands full with the newly arrived campers, including Bill, a no-nonsense descendant of famous cowboy Bill Pickett who prefers roping cattle to hanging out with friends; Winnie, a fearless girl who's earned the nickname Wild Winnie by breaking the rules and occasionally blowing things up; and Jake, a laid-back, easy-going boy who also happens to be a video-gaming fanatic.




Ghosts

Paramount Global and its streaming service Paramount+ announced it has partnered with Lionsgate for the exclusive U.S. subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) rights to the hit comedy, Ghosts, from BBC Studios, CBS Studios and Lionsgate. The highly coveted streaming deal underscores the show's breakout success and follows its renewal for a second season on CBS. In addition to Paramount+'s existing in-season rights to Ghosts, under the terms of the new agreement starting Fall 2022, the service will be the exclusive year-round SVOD home to all episodes of Ghosts. Ghosts has been the number one comedy on Paramount+ year-to-date.

Part of Lionsgate's partnership with BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions, Ghosts is based on the British series of the same name and follows Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), a couple who learn that their new dream house is inhabited by ghosts that only Samantha can see and hear. Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Asher Grodman, Rebecca Wisocky, Sheila Carrasco, Danielle Pinnock, Roman Zaragoza and Devan Chandler Long also star, with Joe Port and Joe Wiseman serving as showrunners. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television, BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and CBS Studios.
