It is near perfect timing by ABC Freeform that they announced the premiere date of season two of the massively popular series Stitchers on Friday January 29. Freeform’s release stated that the show’s “sophomore” season will begin on March 22, 2016. MikesFilmTalk just returned from spending a day on set as the Stitchers cast and crew worked on the season finale.
Cast members were interviewed, and selfies taken (pics can be seen via mikesfilmtalk on Instagram or @mikesfilmtalk on Twitter). Every cast member was excited about the upcoming season and revealed a lot about how the new season was going to be even better than the first.
(Interviews will be appearing as the premiere date gets closer.)
Stitchers follows Kirsten Clark (Emma Ishta) a young lady who is “stitched” into the brains of the recently deceased to access their memories. A team of talented colleagues, Cameron (Kyle Harris), Linus (Ritesh Rajan), Camille (Allison Scagliotti), Det. Fisher (Damon Dayoub) and head of the lab Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) all work together in the secret lab.
The first season saw relationships built and placed under strain. Secrets were revealed about the one young woman, as well as other characters, who could enter the minds of the dead and learn who had killed them and why. Entering memories of the deceased is just the tip of the iceberg in this secret government facility, as no one yet knows the real purpose behind the mission.
Speaking to the show’s stars and the creator Jeff Schechter it looks like season two is going to “up the stakes” and be even more exciting than the first season. Without going into detail, as the actual interviews will be up shortly, everyone on the show is pleased with how the series and their characters are developing.
As more answers to questions from last season are answered, more mysteries crop up as Kirsten, along with her friends and colleagues, tries to learn more about her past. The entire cast bring their roles to life and the writing of the series allows a depth to these character that are often missing in science fiction shows.
On March 22, ABC Freeform will give fans their second look at Stitchers with a season that promises to amp up the storyline, character development and provide a number of surprises along the way. As the cast and Jeff emphasized, this will be Stitchers 2.0.
More will be revealed in the coming weeks, like interviews with the cast and the creator Jeff. Stitchers will air Tuesdays, do not forget to tune in and see what happens next.
