Stitchers Renewed For Season 3!

at .

Freeform's Stitchers is officially returning for another season. 

The drama series stars Emma Ishta as Kirsten Clarke, a young woman who is enrolled on the Stitchers program. 

As you probably already know, the Stitchers program is top secret and not very many people know about it. 

Signs of Illness - Stitchers

The renewal is somewhat surprising. 

The show concluded Season 2 way back in May. 

It was also pushed to a later time period for Season 2, which resulted in the show averaging just under 400,000 viewers. 

With Pretty Little Liars and Switched at Birth concluding, Freeform desperately needs some hit shows. 

Guilt and Dead of Summer's fates have yet to be decided and are still up in the air, but if the network is settling for terrible ratings, then both shows might return in some form. 

Freeform noted that the show's strong performance solidified its renewal. 

Haunted - Stitchers

“Stitchers‘ passionate fanbase has been vocal about wanting to see more of this show, and we listened,” says Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president of programming and development.

“Stitchers has proven itself a consistently strong performer, and we’re proud of the fact that it celebrates #smartgirls everywhere.”

The show must be pulling in a lot of viewers through other measures because the numbers are super bad.

Stitchers Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes and will premiere at a later date.

Stitchers Quotes

Kirsten: how long have I been in this room?
Maggie: Answer the question.
Kirsten: I'm trying to. How long have I been in this room?
Maggie: Guess.
Kirsten: An hour?
Maggie: One minute. [smiling and leaning in] You really don't know, do you?
Kirsten: I have this condition, it's called temporal dysplasia. I have no time perception.
Maggie: I've read about this condition. I thought it was made up.
Kirsten: I wish, cause then you could unmake it up; it really sucks. I use memory, logic and math to approximate time difference, but I don't know what time feels like.

Kristen: Why is he here? Are you guys coroners?
Cameron: No. He's here to share his memories with us.
Kirsten: But he's dead.
Cameron: Hmm. Fun fact: After death, consciousness lingers for 30 seconds. After that, 10 minutes and the brain starts to degrade. If we get a sample in here fast enough, we can start a protocol that will slow down further deterioration for days.
Kirsten: Sample? You mean corpse?
Cameron: Tomato/Tamato.
Kirsten: You're getting this guys dead, deteriorating brain to talk to you? How?
Cameron: By inserting a living consciousness into those memories. We call it stitching.
Kirsten: That's impossible.
Cameron: Is that so, doctor I've never studied neuroscience unlike Cameron. The brain is a bioelectrical device with emphasis on electrical. Even after death the wiring, the synapses are all still in there, for a while anyway, and that means so are the memories, but it takes a living consciousness to access them and interpret them and that's where you come in.
