EXCLUSIVE: Nickelodeon has ordered 6 more episodes of The Haunted Hathaways, bringing the supernatural comedy’s freshman season to 26 episodes. The Haunted Hathaways will return with originals on September 14 at 8:30 PM. Since its July 13 launch, which drew solid 3.3 million total viewers, the live-action series has averaged 2.8 million total viewers, 1.5M K2-11 and 1.1M K6-11, improving its time period by double digits. The Haunted Hathaways joins another new Nick comedy series whose freshman season was recently supersized, Nick at Nite/NickMom’s Instant Mom.

The Haunted Hathaways, executive produced by Boyce Bugliari & Jamie McLaughlin, follows the adventures of a not-so-typical blended family. When Michelle Hathaway (Ginifer King) relocates to New Orleans to open a bakery with her daughters Taylor (Amber Montana) and Frankie (Breanna Yde), they find out that their new home is already occupied by a ghost family comprised of jazz musician father Ray Preston (Chico Benymon), and his sons Miles (Curtis Harris) and Louie (Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr.). After agreeing to live under one roof, they come to care about and rely on one another while driving each other crazy– just like any normal family would.
