In the United States, original episodes of season five aired from September 25, 2009 - May 21, 2010. For airdates on other networks and in other countries, see: International Airdates. Season five has a total of five main characters, Melinda, Jim, Ned, Delia, and Eli. Season Five will move five years into the future in one of the early episodes and continue in the future for the rest of the series, much in the same format as One Tree Hill and Desperate Housewives. Melinda will also have her baby in the first episode of the season, a boy Melinda and Jim name Aiden. 

With the show going five years into the future, the season will be set during 2014 - 2015. This would mean it had been nine years since the start of the show.

This season is the final season of Ghost Whisperer, after CBS canceled it on May 18, 2010. Most main plot points were wrapped up in the final episode, with the only exception being what happened to President Bedford. As of 2013, there are no plans to continue the show in any form.
