Stitchers follows Kirsten, who has been recruited into a government agency to be "stitched" into the memories of people recently deceased to investigate murders and mysteries that otherwise would have gone unsolved. Cameron, a brilliant neuro-scientist, assists Kirsten in the secret program headed by Maggie, a skilled covert operator. The program also includes Linus, a bio-electrical engineer and communications technician. Camille, Kirsten's roommate and a computer science grad student, is also recruited to assist Kirsten as a "stitcher".Written by
On September 15th, 2017, the show was officially canceled by Freeform after three seasons, presumably due to low ratings though Freeform gave no official reason. A large fan campaign was launched on Twitter not long after with the full support of the cast and crew to bring back the show. A petition was made and fans tweeted emails of higher-ups at Freeform as well as Freeform's Feedback page on their website. Fans also contacted other networks, specifically SYFY and TheCW, to get them to pick the show up for a fourth season. Whether this campaign is successful or not has yet to be determined. See more »
One of my biggest problems with the show is the main character, Kirsten. Not that the actress playing her is bad, but the way the show has decided to present her is. Because of her condition she unable to feel like the rest of us(which is what makes her perfect for the program she is enlisted for), but her lack of feeling is portrayed as a complete lack of empathy for others. This condition of hers could have been portrayed in an entirely different way. The show has her coming off as a sarcastic, sociopathic narcissistic brat who is very annoying. Instead of feeling something for her because of her handicap, you just want to smack the s@@t out of her. If you cannot like the main character of this show then I don't know if there is much hope for the rest of the season either. I've seen shows much better than this cancelled. So, unless something miraculous happens, I don't believe this show has much of a chance.
