Following the success of the really rather good Ghostbusters: Afterlife, we’re set to be seeing a lot more of the much-loved franchise on our various screens.

First up, the sequel to that movie. The plan is to escape the country and get back to the New York City setting of the firehouse, as teased in the post-credits scene of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. We won’t say any more just in case you haven’t seen it yet, but seriously if you haven’t and you loved the original Ghostbusters then do yourself a favour!

Director Jason Reitman is reportedly working on a script for the sequel – codenamed Firehouse – currently, alongside his Afterlife co-writer Gil Kenan. They’re also busy with a Dark Horse comic book series that, according to Sony, will “help bridge the gap between Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the upcoming sequel.”

That’s not it for the Ghostbusters movies though. An animated feature that’s set to be “part of the expanding Ghostbusters universe” is also in the works, with Reitman and Kenan overseeing the project that’s to be directed by Jennifer Kluska (Hotel Transylvania: Transformania) and Chris Prynoski, who has several animated credits to his directorial and producing CV.

Speaking of Ghostbusters and animation there’s also a new television series in the works.

If you prefer a little more interaction with your busting of ghosts, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is in development, a multiplayer FPS experience for which the pitch is “As a Ghostbuster, join with other Ghostbusters to chase and trap ghosts in museums, prisons, hotels, and more, and capture the ghosts before they can fully haunt the areas. Or, as the Ghost, hide, sneak, surprise, scare, and of course, slime Ghostbusters and civilians until the everything has gone completely spooky. Use trickery, deception, and Ectoplasm to gain the upper hand and drive the Ghostbusters out.”

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is planned for release on PS5, Xbox and PS4 towards the end of the year, with a promise of crossplay between formats.

Meanwhile, this week marked the anniversary of the release of the original Ghostbusters back in 1984, and a couple of fun vids were unleashed. First up, an excursion to NYC:

Next, a fascinating – and a little bit creepy – look at the creation of Harold Ramis’ digital double for Ghostbusters: Afterlife:
