Stitchers fans can expect the series to stick around for at least one more season. Freeform renewed the sci-fi drama for a third season following a high-rated season two. Freeform’s Executive Vice Present of Programming and Development Karey Burke made the announcement, stating, “Stitchers‘ passionate fanbase has been vocal about wanting to see more of this show, and we listened. Stitchers has proven itself a consistently strong performer, and we’re proud of the fact that it celebrates #smartgirls everywhere.”
According to the network, Stitchers is Freeform’s number two new series among adults 18-49 over the past two seasons. Only Shadowhunters, based on Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments books, ranks higher. Stitchers is executive produced by Jeffrey Alan Schecter, Jonathan Baruch, and Rob Wolken. Stitchers stars Emma Ishta as Kirsten Clark, Kyle Harris as Cameron Goodkin, Ritesh Rajan as Linus Ahluwalia, Salli Richardson-Whitfield as Maggie Baptiste, Allison Scagliotti as Camille Engelson, and Damon Dayoub as Detective Quincy Fisher.
The Plot: Highly intelligent and persistent, Kirsten Clark has an aptitude for technology but never expected that she’d be hacking into the minds of the recently deceased. Recruited into a covert government agency to be ‘stitched’ into the memories of the dead, Kirsten and the Stitchers team investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. Working alongside Kirsten is Cameron, a brilliant neuroscientist whose passion for the program is evident in his work, and Linus, an earnest engineer and communications technician. The secret agency is headed by Maggie, a skilled veteran of covert operations who closely guards the deeper purpose of the Stitchers program. Kirsten’s roommate, Camille, a gifted computer science grad student, is also recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her role as a “stitcher,” as well as LAPD Detective Fisher, who provides back-up and support for the team.
