On Tuesday, March 22nd, Stitchers
returns for it's second season on Freeform, the new name for ABC Family. The series follows a secret government program where they "stitch," someone into the memories of the recently deceased. Having had devastating consequences in the past, they recruit grad student Kirsten Clark, who has temporal dysplasia, which means she doesn't perceive the passage of time and doesn't process emotions, which makes her the perfect candidate. When Kirsten is stitched, she is able to use the memories of the dead to help solve mysteries and murders.
Other members of the team include neuroscientist Cameron Goodkin (Kyle Harris), who guides the stitches, communications technician Linus Ahluwalia (Ritesh Rajan), Kirsten's friend Camille Engelson (Allison Scagliotti), who also works for the program, and head of the department, Maggie Baptiste (Salli Richardson-Whitfield).
At the end of season one, Cameron had stopped his heart so that Kirsten could stitch into his memories to learn the identity of Detective Fisher (Damon Dayoub)'s shooter. On the season premiere on Tuesday, after Kirsten successfully brings Cameron back, she has the unexpected side effect of her temporal dysplasia being gone, and her emotions come flooding back.
Stars Ishta and Harris talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision earlier in the week for an exclusive interview about what's coming up in season two.
