- Set years after the end of The Real Ghostbusters, lack of supernatural activity has put the Ghostbusters out of business. Each member has gone their separate way, except for Dr. Egon Spengler, who still lives in the firehouse to monitor the containment unit, take care of Slimer, further his studies and teach a class on the paranormal at a local college. When ghosts start to reappear, Egon is forced to recruit his lone four students as the new Ghostbusters.
- Dr. Egon Spengler, one of the original Ghostbusters that acts as a mentor for the new team
- Kylie Griffin, a goth girl genius and expert on the occult
- Eduardo Rivera, a cynical Latino slacker
- Garrett Miller, a young white paraplegic athlete who uses a wheelchair
- Roland Jackson, a studious African-American machinery whiz.
- Janine Melnitz, the Ghostbusters' previous secretary who returns to the job
- Slimer, a hungry ghost that is apart of the team
Kylie Griffin is one of the only Extreme Ghostbusters that appeared again after the series was cancelled, in the Ghostbusters comic books published by IDW Publishing. In the comics, she originally only appeared in cameo roles as a worker in Ray Stantz's occult book shop before being made a Ghostbuster in issues starting in 2013.
The fandom for this particular Ghostbusters section of the franchise is fairly small - probably due lack of circulation after the initial release and cancellation. Despite this the popularity of the character Kylie Griffin, the second female Ghostbuster to star in the franchise, had her appearing in the Ghostbusters comics.
The main shipping for the fandom is the canon pairings of Kylie Griffin/Eduardo Rivera and Janine Melnitz/Egon Spengler. Other pairings also appear such as Garrett/Eduardo and some crossover pairings with other fandoms.
