New Ghost Whisperer Spoilers: Season 5 Scoop! Jim & Melinda’s Baby!

Ghost Whisperer Season 5 Spoilers! Time Leap 5 Years in the Future!

Ghost Whisperer Leaping Five Years in the Future: Melinda and Jim’s Son Aidan Lucus will be 5, Casting Under Way

A Ghost Whisperer insider confirms that producers of the CBS drama are toying with the idea of kicking the new season off five years into the future. The move would allow the show to introduce Jim and Melinda’s son as a pre-schooler instead of as a newborn. As you’ll recall, the season ended with Melinda learning that her offspring would possess psychic powers even greater than her own. Probably a tough story to do with a burping, teething toddler.

Episode 5.01: Season Premiere Airdate: September 2009

Casting for 5-year-old Aiden Clancy have begun. As said in spoilers below, the show is planning a five-year jump between the season 4 finale and the season 5 premiere, meaning that Jim and Melinda’s son will be 5 years old at the start of the season. Aiden is described as a normal but sometimes serious boy who sees ghosts. When playing at a friend’s house, Aiden sees the ghost of sad and scary man who is bruised and has a cut on his head. Aiden pretends he wants to play with cars but in fact he wants a reason to get close to the ghost and talk to him. He learns that the man doesn’t remember who he is but remembers he got hurt after hurting someone else first. Melinda, who was chit chatting with the other mother, arrives on the scene and asks Aiden if he wants to go. He says no as he wants to help people just like his mother does. Source:

5×02 Melinda on Fire

5×03 The Name’s Eli James

5×04Ghost Stories (1/2)

5×05 Ghost Stories (2/2)

Executive producer P.K. Simonds talking about Jim/Sam. “The face that everyone sees, including Melinda, when they look at ‘Jim’ is Sam’s,” he says. “But over time, people who know that Jim’s soul is in Sam’s body — including Jim himself — will see him more and more like Jim. Even in mirrors, we’ll soon stop seeing Sam’s face looking back.” (TV Guide)

Ghostly whispers about next season (yes, next!), include: Dr. Jim (?!), a certain baby’s special gifts, the “Book of Changes” and a possible Grandview space-time continuum!

Are we going to see more of the Watchers on Ghost Whisperer? Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds says we will “definitely” see more Watchers and begin to learn about how the “very important” Book of Changes relates to their abilities: “Over the very, very long span of time that they’ve been watching, [the Watchers] have observed that history tends to repeat itself. That gives them a certain ability to make a pretty good educated guess about what the future is. They are able to know something about what’s taking shape, let’s say, in a character’s womb. And yes, it’s possible to know certain things about the gift that might be growing.”

Do you have any inside info about Ghost Whisperer? Show runner P.K. Simonds broke the news to us that Melinda is preggers with Jim’s baby, but that’s not all he had to say about Ghost Whisperer’s newest castmember: It’s a “very special baby with an important role to play,” who will inherit unique abilities from Melinda. But Melinda’s “new, young apprentice,” says Simonds, also possesses “other kinds of gifts that we haven’t explored on the show yet.”

So great that Jim remembered himself on Ghost Whisperer, but what’s next? Do they still have two guys playing one character? According to Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds, “We might catch a couple of glimpses” of Kenneth Mitchell, the actor who plays Sam, during the remainder of the season, but that’s it. And we’ll see David Conrad as Jim, but everyone on the show still perceives him as Sam. “He can’t resume [his Jim life] exactly, because Sam Lucas doesn’t have a license to practice emergency medicine, but obstacles are also opportunities. He finds a new direction that actually allows him to go after a specific dream he’s always had.” Like, say, Jim’s dream of medical school? Looks like Grandview residents might eventually enjoy Jim’s bedside manner via Dr. Sam Lucas… Source: Kristin on E!Online

2.23 Book of Changes (Season finale) – Airing May 2009

Melinda’s dreams and visions about her baby tie in with a mysterious “Book of Changes” that everyone wants to get their hands on. Jeremy Bishop: In his mid 30s, good-looking, tall, and mysterious, he meets with Zoe to discuss a special collection of books that are being sold to support the university. His interest in the tomes is sinister, and he can turn from pleasant and charming to ice-cold in an instant. (SpoilerTV)

David Conrad lives on in Ghost Whisperer: Character lives on, dead

For most people, the day they find out they’re going to die is the worst day of their life.

But David Conrad’s reaction was one of bemusement.

After three seasons playing Jim Clancy on Ghost Whisperer, the CBS supernatural series about a woman who talks to ghosts, the writers sat down with Conrad and told him that his character was going to die in Season 4. In a shocking episode, Jim is fatally shot, leaving his psychic wife Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) to help his spirit cross over to the other side.

“The head writer said, ‘Hey, we really need to have a meeting.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, boy. Here it comes,'” Conrad remembers. “It was funny, actually — he was like, ‘We’re going to kill you off, but . . . you’re still on the show.'”

One of the perks of starring on a supernatural-themed show is that a character’s death doesn’t necessarily mean the actor should start looking for work. In this case, Jim refuses to go into the light; instead, he enters the body of another recently-deceased man, who wakes up with no memory of his past life. While other characters can only see the other man, when Melinda looks at him, she — and the viewers — see Jim, meaning Conrad gets to keep his day job.

But not everyone reacted to Jim’s death and rebirth as well as Conrad did. When news of the storyline first leaked last September, fans immediately took to the Internet to voice their intense displeasure, with most threatening to stop watching the show altogether. Even as the plot unfolded throughout the season, viewers continued to express anger.

“The new storyline is a flop. I think Melinda and Jim need to be together to make the show work, not with this crazy thing of Jim’s spirit in someone else,” one viewer posted on a forum. “I always looked forward to watching on Fridays, if they don’t bring Jim back (in the flesh), I will find another show to watch.”

Added another: “The writers of this plot twist should be FIRED! . . . This all better be a dream or something! If this plot isn’t done and over by the first epi of the next season, I am done with the show!”

Yet, surprisingly, Ghost Whisperer’s ratings have gone up. So far, the fourth season is averaging 10.5 million US viewers, up from 9.3 million last year; its Feb. 28 episode earned 11.54 million viewers, putting it in the No. 15 spot in the Nielsen ratings and beating out hit shows like Lost and The Amazing Race. Not bad for a Friday-night show whose fans keep threatening to revolt.

“I think they’re angry in the sense of, ‘This chicken’s terrible! And it comes in such small portions!'” says Conrad. “They’re pissed about something but only while they’re watching it. I think the writers irked people just right — and they did it in few enough episodes that viewers followed it to get what they wanted.”

The 40-year-old actor isn’t phased by any of the negative fan reaction and is focusing instead on the new challenges brought on by the storyline.

“The thing that was most interesting about it, to me, was what it gave us the opportunity to do. If I lost my memory completely about Melinda, there was the idea that they could start flirting again and courting each other,” he explains. “It was weird — when you’ve worked with someone day in and day out for a few years, it’s neat to suddenly play a scene where we don’t know each other. Playing a supportive husband and wife translates into Jennifer and I watching each others’ backs on the set. To be in a scenario where you’re not supposed to be doing that is a little awkward, a little strange. It felt sort of alien, but kind of cool.”

That attitude is exactly how Conrad approached acting in the first place. The Pittsburgh native never intended to become an actor but fell into the industry almost by accident.

“In college, I just auditioned for something out of the blue and I got the role, so I ended up falling into doing theatre in college even though I didn’t major in it,” he recalls. “It was literally, like, I walked in the door, ‘Hey, I’ve never done this before; let’s try this.’ They gave me the part and the rest was just staying in a place where somebody wanted you. That was really it. It wasn’t like, ‘I want to be an actor!’ it was just, ‘Hey, they like me.'”

Conrad continued his stage career, starring in several Shakespeare productions and various Tom Stoppard plays, before landing a lead role on the ABC drama Relativity. The show only lasted one season, but the exposure helped Conrad secure appearances on shows like Boston Public and Miss Match before finally landing his most well-known role as Jim on Ghost Whisperer in 2005. But despite his fame on the small screen, Conrad returns to the stage whenever he can.

“Almost all filmmaking is so controlled by economic forces or just the simple nature of the media. All the machines, lights, all of the cameras, have to be lugged around, it breaks up the process by which you make a performance. The scripts are rewritten by 20 people — after a while, by the nature of the way the economics are set up, I think it kind of dumbs it down. In theatre, you walk out on the stage and it’s just you. A couple of people tell you what to do, they put lights on you, and you just do it for two or three hours. There’s something great about that. It’s simple, liberating. I have to say that I prefer that kind of freedom.”

Not surprisingly, however, Conrad is most frequently recognized for Ghost Whisperer — now more than ever.

“I get stopped in airports all the time. People had said things to me before, but this was a little funny,” he says, laughing. “Most of them are like, ‘Whee! We like this!’ or ‘You’ve gotta get back to her!'”

But for Conrad, whatever the fan response, he’s just happy to see Ghost Whisperer doing so well after four years on the air.

“It’s been a good season for us. Not too many series have a jump in their fourth year. It’s rare,” he says. “After four years, you’re tired, the crew’s tired. And then, to say, ‘Wow, we’re No. 15 for the week,’ that’s a great thing. It’s like, okay, cool. We can keep doing this.”

    I love Ghost Whisperer. I think it’s written very creatively and full of emotions. I just hope the new season will be shown here in the Philippines sooner. Actually, the show here is a lot episodes back than in the US. I love Melinda. Her character is so well crafted and of course, goes well with Jim. I adore Delia, Eli and Ned. Please stick with the characters. It won’t be the same if one of them will be gone. I Hope you guys stay in the air for a looooong time. So that we can enjoy your show more!

    I really love this show. Malinda and Jim are the heart of the show and i hope David conrad never leaves. they both make you feel has if you were in love with the same unconditionally deep love that they have for eachother. I wish that the show would show a few episodes of Malinda as a new mother because thats all she\’s ever wanted, why rush it. Anyways cant wait for season five. This show brings so much strong emotions it almost feels like im in Malindas place.

    I have soms info. about where season 5.

    P.K. Simonds said in an interview: “Over the very, very long span of time that the Watchers have been watching, they’ve observed that history tends to repeat itself. That gives them a certain ability to make a pretty good educated guess about what the future is. They are able to know something about what’s taking shape, let’s say, in a character’s womb. And yes, it’s possible to know certain things about the gift that might be growing”. He also said, that we’ll begin to learn about how the “very important” Book of Changes relates to the Watchers abilities.

    According to one of P.K. Simonds recent interviews, he stated, “Everyone who knows Jim’s ghost is in Sam’s body, over a while Jim will start to appear in mirrors and more people will begin to see Sam as Jim once again.” [28][29][30] The Fifth Season will start shooting June 30, 2009 and Jennifer Love Hewitt is directing the Season Premiere.
