WMG / The Haunted Hathaways

The Prestons died during Hurricane Katrina
  • They live in New Orleans, they're black and they're dead, but they can't reveal that on the show because it's a family show and still a very controversial topic, almost 9 years after it happened.

The Hathaways will become ghosts themselves
  • A Bittersweet Ending of a Grand Finale would end up the three dying but can now live with the Prestons forever.
    • Jossed with the series finale ending with the Prestons simply being allowed to stay with the Hathaways in their bakery.
