After a very long wait, Freeform has given the greenlight for fan favorite procedural drama series, Stitchers. This means the show will have a third season and executive VP of Programming and Development Karey Burke made the announcement on October 6.
This makes it official and all the fans who complained about the amount of time it took Freeform to renew their favorite series can now smile.
Stitchers has a very vocal and passionate fanbase, Burke said. She also revealed that the show has been proven hit. The series has performed strongly and Burke revealed that the network was very proud of the Stitchers focussing on #smartgirls “everywhere.”
In the Adults 18 – 49 demographic, Stitchers comes in as the firm number two new series of the past two seasons. The show came in closely behind Shadowhunters.
Only Pretty Little Liars and Shadowhunters came ahead of Stitchers making the sci-fi, drama show the number three original series across digital platforms.
The lead character, Kirsten Clark is uber smart and intelligent. Add to that a stubborn resistance to giving up and you have one formidable young lady hacking into the memories of the recently murdered victims. The Stitchers program is part of the NSA and thus far the team have no real idea what the hacking technology is really going to be used for.
Neuroscientist Cameron, a brilliant and dedicated teammate who has an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture works along side Kirsten. They also have a “connection” that tantalizes fans enormously. Camille, an expert computer graduate and hacker extraordinaire works with Clark and she is romantically entangled with…
Linus who is another pop culture aficionado and the team engineer and comms expert. Maggie runs the show and she also looks out for the younger members of her team. Detective Fisher is a new yet important part of the team.
The season two finale saw another cliffhanger and fans are desperate to learn more about “Camsten” and the mystery behind Kirsten’s father and what really happened to her mother.
Stitchers is executive produced by Jeffrey Alan Schechter, who is also the show’s creator. Jeff is also well know for Overruled. Jonathan Baruch and Rob Woken also executive produce the series.
Freeform have not explained why they took so long to renew the series. Fans, who were impatient to learn their favorite show’s fate, created petitions for a third season. Social media platforms were used to query why there was no immediate renewal of the show.
Regardless of the reasons, Stitchers is now going to return and fans will hopefully learn more about the characters and where they are headed next.
There is still so much for Kirsten to learn about her father and what his true intentions are/were. Many questions still need to be answered and more layers peeled back to reveal secrets that have been hidden throughout the first two seasons.
Many fans want to see Cameron and Kirsten get together as a couple and it will be investing to see what Jeff and the writers come up with this season.
Congratulations to all the cast and crew for finally getting the greenlight for season three. Suffice to say, we cannot wait.
