There’s no end to stitching in sight.
Freeform has just ordered a third season of its sci-fi procedural “Stitchers”. No word yet on how many episodes or an airdate, but there will be more, mainly because the show’s fans were vocal about getting more.
“‘Stitchers’ passionate fanbase has been vocal about wanting to see more of this show, and we listened,” said Karey Burke, executive vice president of programming and development at Freeform in a statement. “’Stitchers‘ has proven itself a consistently strong performer, and we’re proud of the fact that it celebrates #smartgirls everywhere.”
NBC is staying in business with Dick Wolf.
The network has officially renewed its freshman series “Chicago Med” for a second, and veteran police procedural “Law & Order: SVU” for an eighteenth season.
And from before the weekend:
– MTV has canceled “Finding Carter” after two seasons.
– Netflix has renewed “House of Cards” for a fifth season. And it has officially ordered the revival of “Gilmore Girls”, with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino writing and directing all the installments, and of course, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are back in their respective signature roles of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
– The second season of “Stitchers” will premier on March 22 on Freeform.
Terry O’Quinn, best known for his role of John Locke On ABC’s “Lost”, will come back to the network that made him famous.
The Hollywood Reporter was first to report that the veteran actor has boarded the upcoming second season of “Secrets & Lies”, which features an all-new cast, aside from returning investigator Andrea Cornell, played by Juliette Lewis.
The new season centers on newlywed Eric Warner (Michael Ealy) and the investigation into his wife’s murder.
O’Quinn will play Eric’s father, a charming and lovable finance magnate and the adoring father of three children. He built his Charlotte private-equity firm on a model of honesty and morality and has achieved great success. Now, ready to retire, he’s passing the reins on to his heir apparent and eldest son, Eric (Ealy). However, when the party celebrating Eric’s promotion results in the murder of his wife Kate, John’s plans are abruptly put on hold, as he attempts to lead his family and his company through this shocking tragedy.
Also added to the cast is Mekia Cox, who will play Eric’s sister, a successful criminal attorney who rushes to her brother’s side when he’s targeted by Cornell in investigation into Kate’s death.
Meanwhile, ABC Family has announced that Damon Dayoub, who recurs on freshman drama “Stitchers” during the currently airing first season, will be a series regular when the show returns for its sophomore run in 2016.
ABC Family sees not a past, but a bright future for one of its freshman series.
