A drama series that marked a first for its cable network — the first-ever procedural drama for youth-focused Freeform — has picked up a renewal. Variety reports that Freeform picked up “Stitchers” for a third season.
The show “follows a young woman (Emma Ishta) who is recruited into a secret government agency to be ‘stitched’ into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and help solve mysteries before they go to the grave,” Variety notes.
In announcing the pickup, Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president of programming and development, said: “’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.”
The show also stars Kyle Harris, Ritesh Rajan, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Allison Scagliotti and Damon Dayoub, and is executive produced by Jeffrey Alan Schechter, Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken.
