Ghost Whisperer fans shouldn't say goodbye to the paranormal just yet. Although the show was canceled after five seasons, executive producer Kim Moses tells TVGuide.com that she and her team are moving forward on a new show called Ghostworld with ABC. CBS cancels seven series, including Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs and Cold Case Set to shoot this summer, Ghostworld is about a ghost who helps a young homicide detective solve crimes. In doing so, he hopes to discover clues to his own life and death. The script was originally written by Daniel Taplitz and What About Brian creator Dana Stevens is also now on board. Although ABC passed on picking up the series after what Moses calls a "very last minute" cancellation by CBS, Moses is staying positive. "We always want to keep telling stories because that's what we are in our heart and our soul," she says. "ABC and CBS have been incredibly supportive ... and it's important we do additional things."

He says, "They are talking about it, so that's cool. We haven't exactly gone into the light, we haven't crossed over, but we've got some life." "Ghost Whisperer" premiered in 2005. Its Friday night partner "Medium" which is starring Patricia Arquette has been picked up for a sixth season. The show previously was axed by NBC. Source Here
