Fans have been anxious to get back into the world of Ghostbusters for a long. Many were not happy with the 2016 reboot, but with the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, we’ll actually be diving into the canon that was established back in the 1980s. As wary as fans have been, excitement has grown as more and more cast members were confirmed to have appearances. But what about Bill Murray?
Bill Murray has been one big question mark, and while his appearance is no guarantee of fan love (it certainly didn’t work in the 2016 reboot), with this one taking place within the actual canon, his showing up would bring more weight.

Now, thanks to Vanity Fair, we know he is, in fact, returning.
Bill Murray is *definitely* in the new Ghostbusters movie.
I know because he made me wear a proton pack when I visited the set.

As indicated in the piece, this is 100% confirmed, as the journalist actually visited the set of Ghostbusters: Afterlife and was given the proton pack treatment by Bill Murray himself. As far as how he’ll play into the story…only time will tell. But at least Murray seems to enjoy the script.
“The script is good. It’s got lots of emotion in it. It’s got lots of family in it, with through lines that are really interesting,” Murray told the outlet. “It’s gonna work.”
Those are strong words, especially since this is a franchise that hasn’t really fired on all cylinders since that first movie.
