Freeform’s set a March 22, 2016 premiere date for season two of the sci-fi series Stitchers starring Emma Ishta. When the series premiered in 2015 it marked the first time ABC Family (renamed Freeform in January 2016) had dipped its toes in scripted procedural dramas.
In addition to Ishta, the cast includes Ritesh Rajan, Kyle Harris, Allison Scagliotti, and Damon Dayoub. Jeffrey Alan Schechter, Jonathan Baruch, and Rob Wolken are the executive producers.
Season two will air on Tuesday nights at 10pm ET/PT.
The Stitchers Plot:
A highly intelligent and persistent young woman, Kirsten Clark has an aptitude for technology but never expected to 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 is the perfect candidate to 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 new role as a ‘stitcher,’ as well as LAPD Detective Fisher, who provides backup and support for the team.
