Freeform Cancels Stitchers After Three Seasons

Stitchers, the Freeform series about a woman who can 'stitch' into the minds of the recently deceased, will not be back. The series just wrapped up it's third and what is now final season. according to Deadline.


The sci-fi procedural focused on Kristen Clark (Emma Ishta), who was recruited to join a government agency because of her ability to stitch into the minds of the recently deceased and use their memories to investigate murders. Kirsten was highly intelligent and had a strong aptitude for technology, but this basically made her a mental hacker. Leading the agency was Maggie Baptiste (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) and neuroscientist Cameron Goodkin (Kyle Harris). Kirsten and the Stitchers team investigates murders and deciphers mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. Ritesh Rajan, Allison Scagliotti, and Damon Dayoub also starred.


The series was created by Jeffrey Alan Schechter and ran for a total off 31 episodes.

The premise for the series has been done before, Tru Calling and Pushing Daisies come to mind and in a way the Frightners. The fact it lasted for three seasons on Freeform is a sign that there was something decent there, but how hard is it to build an audience on some of these smaller cable channels? And what does it mean for shows like Marvel's Cloak & Dagger and Marvel's New Warriors which are both slated for the former ABC Family network. Will the strength of the Marvel brand be enough to bring viewers over?
