“Everyone is full of joy and cheer, except one miserable man — Ebenezer Scrooge,” the Season 2 description reads. “What happened to make him so mean? Tune in to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to hear all about Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and the Ghosts who show Scrooge the true spirit of Christmas.”

Get ready for haunting stories of betrayal, love, jealousy and rage. Each chapter brings more clues, more suspense and of course, more twists and turns.

Season 2 takes a more festive approach with A Christmas Carol, although fans can still expect some ghostly visitors and a foreboding warning about a terrifying possible future if Scrooge can’t change his ways.

In a video teaser, Morrison is seen seated in an overstuffed chair, surrounded by holiday decorations and reading from a large book that sits in his lap.

“Bah humbug,” he reads.
