Fox today topped up the first season of Ghosted with an order of six additional episodes. The freshman comedy premiered in October and is off to a decent start on Sunday nights as part of the network's prime time comedy block.

An offbeat workplace comedy with a focus on the paranormal, the half-hour series follows a cynical skeptic who is paired with a 'true believer' after being recruited by a top-secret government agency to investigate a recent spate of unexplained activity in Los Angeles that could be tied to a larger mystery that threatens the existence of the human race.

Ghosted started off with a shorter-than-usual order of 10 episodes due to scheduling needs on the part of Fox. Today's top-up gives brings the show's total up to 16 - short of what would typically be considered a full season.

Also of note, a new showrunner is being brought in for the newly-ordered episodes. Former executive producer of The Office, Paul Lieberstein, will be taking over for the departing Kevin Etten, who ran the series for its first 10 episodes. The move could signal a shift in style going forward with the hopes of boosting the show's overall performance.
