Freeform has canceled sci-fi procedural Stitchers, no long after it concluded its third season.

But the energy, love, and support of our fans is something that I am grateful for & will never forget. Our amazing cast and crew are the real heroes of this adventure. And thanks @FreeformTV for giving me the chance to tell 3 yrs of stories.”

Star Emma Ishta posted on Instagram:

Today we say goodbye to what has been a huge part of my life for the past 3 years -The Little Show that Could – @stitcherstv . I want to thank our creator and show runner Jeff Schecter, our executive producers @jonathanbaruch and Rob Wolken, Steve Minor and @freeform for taking a chance in a completely unknown actor with hardly any experience. You have given me the opportunity to grow exponentially as an actor but more importantly as a human. I am so grateful. And to our fans: THANK YOU. It has been a delight and honor to create this show for you. Your enthusiasm and passion is unparalleled, thank you for believing in us. To the next chapter! P.S. See how they catch me when I fall? @kyleharris @damondayoub @teshrajan

Meet the Stitchers – ABC Family’s new genre drama

by on Jun.08, 2015, under Television

Stichers is the new SF procedural drama from ABC family, and features a couple of faces familiar to fans of this site – Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who played Allison Blake on Eureka, and Allison Scagliotti, who played Claudia Donovan on Warehouse 13. It debuted last week, and episode 2 airs tomorrow night at 9/8c.

The show follows Kirsten Clark (Emma Ishta), a Caltech student who has temporal dysplasia, which causes her to have no sense of time. She is at odds with her roommate, Camille (Scagliotti), another Caltech student who is a computer systems expert and is trying to kick her out. Kirsten encounters Maggie Baptiste (Richardson-Whitfield), who leads the Stitchers program – a covert government project (the agency we are not given) which has developed the capability to insert or “stitch” a person into a recently deceased victim’s memory for a limited time, with the hope that they might discover the truth about the person’s death. Kirsten’s affliction makes her perfect to become a Stitcher.

Helping on the team is Cameron Goodkin (Kyle Harris, The Carrie Diaries), a brilliant neuroscientist and acts as a guide while Kirsten travels through memories; and Linus Ahluwalia (Ritesh Rajan, Campus Life), a bioelectric engineer.

The first episode was extremely fast-paced – perhaps a bit too much, as there is a lot to follow for an introductory episode, but that doesn’t prevent the characters from coming through. And their interactions allow for a good amount of humor to lighten up the intensity, especially the banter between Kirsten, Cameron and Linus. It will be interesting to see how this translates in the long run.

Of course I had to wonder about the length of the “exit password” that Kirsten needs to type in to exit the memories…I tweeted about the fact that something you’d need to type in quickly should be much shorter…almost instantly I got a reply from executive producer/creator Jeff Schechter, who said, “It used to be ‘iheartjeffreyalanschechter’, but my wife objected.” OK, everyone involved is fun to deal with…

Check out some introductory videos below on each of the Stitchers.
