Production got underway on Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel last month, and the first photos from the set have now been shared online.

The snaps (via Daily Mail) show original spook-hunter Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) alongside Paul Rudd's Mr. Grooberson (did we ever get his first name?) who debuted in the last movie, and another actor from the '80s classic!

Spoilers follow.

Yes, William Atherton will reprise his role as "dickless" Environmental Protection Agency officer, Walter Peck.

You can check out the photos at the link below.

We're not sure why Peck would be sniffing around the Firehouse again, but the team did make him look like a fool when they saved the city after he forced them to switch off the containment unit, so perhaps he's out for revenge?

Plot details are still under wraps, but after moving the spooky adventures to a more rural setting for Afterlife, it's been confirmed that we'll be returning to New York City in the next movie.

Other main cast members Carrie Coon (Callie Spengler) Finn Wolfhard (Trevor), and Mckenna Grace (Phoebe) are expected to return, but it's not clear if Hudson's fellow Ghostbusters OGs Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will also reprise their roles.

In the previous movie's stinger, we saw Winston return to the team's old headquarters, where the refurbished ECTO-1 was waiting. Though nothing has been confirmed just yet, the implication was that Zeddemore was planning to train a new group of Ghostbusters.

AGREED. I didn't even know the actor was still alive.

I’ve heard this movie will redeem Peck. In the third act he’ll get his dick back.

Watching this movie as an adult, this guy was a dick. But he was just doing his job. For the freaking EPA. Leave it to the 80s to make villain out of a guy who works for the epa and is questioning the safety practices of a group of random scientists operating unlicensed nuclear machinery in the middle of highly populated metropolitan city. I highly doubt that ANY of the equipment and facilities being used were up to city code.

@Stinkor1 - He has his reasons for being suspicious, but he still throws a tantrum and unleashes those ghosts, even though he doesn't understand what he's doing in regards to the machinery, but does it anyway.

@Stinkor1 - The 80's? How about now too! Lol.

It'll be confirmed he's dickless. We'll get a ghost fly by accidentally ripping his pants off and we see he's basically just a Ken doll.

@Origame @santoanderson - Actually it will be the ghost of his dick revealing that he's suffering from... "Phantom Penis Syndrome".

No no, I'm leaving. Lemme just slam the rest of my beer and maybe another shot before my Uber shows up. No more shots? Fine fine fine, I'm going (to the bar next door! Ha!!)

@StSteven - My question is, would it need a whole new name like "Phantom Penis Syndrome"? Or is a punishment also a limb? Or dies size matter in this case? If your penis is ample would it be a limb?

@CorndogBurglar - Well that's a pretty heavy philosophical question which I thus far haven't really sen properly addressed in Academia or elsewhere, so it might justify a healthy (and tasteful) debate.

Personally, I can do curls with mine as it does bend in the middle like an elbow of knee (I can do also do pushups with it if I "warm up" first), so in the case I say it qualifies as a limb , but from what I seen on some of the more scholarly sites such as "Pornhub" and "YouPorn" that's not the case for most guys, so I guess it matters what you use it for. For example, if you can paint a wall with it, then it probably qualifies as a limb. But if all you use it for is sex, then I guess it all comes down to who's REALLY doing all the work there 😉.

Well, to play the obvious card in the IDW comics Peck goes on to head a committee that oversees paranormal extermination, and the Busters aren't the only game in town.

Bring on Ron Alexander.

Afterlife shouldn’t have been made. It was not good. Doubt this will be either.

They'll have to update the scene with Peck for MoDeRn times.

He won't be called "dickless"; they'll just say he's transitioning. 😁
