ABC Family today announced the hit original drama series "Stitchers" will return for a second season.
The first procedural program for the network, "Stitchers" is currently airing Tuesday nights (9 p.m.). The summer finale will air Aug. 4.
"Fans are enjoying the camaraderie of the 'Stitchers' team and a lead character that is unapologetically smart, focused and a great role model to young women," said Karey Burke, executive vice president of programming and development at ABC Family. "We look forward to seeing more of the 'Stitchers' team tackling diverse cases as they unravel the mystery behind the program's creation."
Launch to date, "Stitchers" is cable TV's No. 1 scripted series on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. in adults 18-34, women 18-34, viewers 12-34 and females 12-34.
"Stitchers" follows Kirsten (Emma Ishta), a young woman recruited into a covert government agency to be "stitched" into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. Working alongside Kirsten is Cameron (Kyle Harris), a brilliant neuroscientist whose passion for the program is evident in his work. The secret program is headed by Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), a skilled veteran of covert operations, and includes Linus (Ritesh Rajan), a socially immature bioelectrical engineer and communications technician. Kirsten's roommate, Camille (Allison Scagliotti), a gifted computer science grad student, is also recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her new role as a "stitcher."
