ABC Family Renews 'Stitchers' For Season 2

ABC Family has renewed its original drama series Stitchers for a second season. Through its first six episodes, the series is averaging 930,000 total viewers.

From writer Jeffrey A. Schechter, Stitchers centers on 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.

The drama stars Emma Ishta, Kyle Harris, Ritesh Rajan, Damon Dayoub, Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Allison Scagliotti.

Schechter, Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken serve as executive producers. ABC Family Original Productions and StoryBy Productions produce.

"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 Programming and Development, 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."

The summer finale airs on August 4.
