The third season of Stitchers (Freeform, Mondays, 9/8C) has had its share of surprises – not the least of which was Cameron and Kristen finding out where her mother was being kept (not to mention that a big reason the Stitchers program exists is to find a way to save her).
This week’s episode, Paternis, delves into the pasts of the show’s main characters – Cameron, Kristen, Linus and Camille.
Recently I had the chance to catch up with the cast of ABC Family series “Stitchers”. Allison Scagliotti, Ritesh Rajan, Damon Dayoub, Salli Richardson, Emma Ishta & Kyle Harris give us dirt on what to expect inside the lab and sneak peek into the lives of their characters out in the world.
What will happen when Kirsten enters Cameron’s mind? Does Cameron live or die? Will Camille and Linus’ relationship go to the next level or is Linus forever stuck as a man child? “Stitchers” airs Tuesdays 9/8c on ABC Family.
ABC Family is a network that takes chances – could Kyle XY, Middleman, Bunheads, or Pretty Little Liars really have appeared anywhere else?
Now, the network is premiering Stitchers, a sci-fi/procedural/relationship dramedy that may have their most out there premise yet – technology exists to allow a human consciousness to be ‘stitched’ into the brain of a recently deceased person and experience their most recent memories. This technology is being used by a very, very clandestine government agency to solve murders – though not just any old murders…
Stitchers, the new ABC Family sci-fi drama about covert government operatives who allow themselves to be ‘stitched’ into the minds of the recently deceased, has begun production in Los Angeles.
Stitchers stars Emma Ishta (Manhattan Love Story) as newly recruited Kirsten who works alongside brilliant neuroscientist Cameron (Kyle Harris, The Carrie Diaries).
Salli Richardson-Whitfield’s (Eureka) Maggie heads the secret program which also includes immature bioelectrical engineer, Linus (Ritesh Rajan, Jungle Book) and Kirsten’s roommate, Camille (Allison Scgliotti, Warehouse 13), a gifted computer science grad student.
Warehouse 13 is snagged, bagged and about to be tagged. One of Syfy’s most popular shows ever, the thrilleromedy (as its perpetrators fondly refer to it) will return for a shortened six-episode fifth and final season in 2014.
In tonight’s season premiere of Warehouse 13 (Syfy, Mondays, 10/9C), Secret Service Agents Pete Lattimer and Mika Bering have to save the world and deal with an immortal while Claudia Donovan and Steve Jinks have to enter Artie’s mind to persuade him to live. For the Warehouse 13 team it’s just another day at the office.
Warehouse 13 [Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C] uses a loose format – agents must track down and neutralize a variety of dangerous artifacts – to go places that most television series would avoid at all costs. This week’s episode, for example, is a high fantasy parody of video games, their programmers, and the show itself.
Allison Scagliotti is best known for playing Warehouse Agent-in-Training, Claudia Donovan on Syfy’s hit series, Warehouse 13 [Mondays, 9/8C]. As the Warehouse’s resident tech wizard, she has only added to her geek cred – having played one of the Wonder Twins on Smallville – but that’s small potatoes compared with her dual role in this week’s episode of Warehouse 13, in which Claudia and Agent Pete Lattimer [Eddie McClintock] have to enter a virtual world inside a computer game to save the life of Douglas Fargo [Neil Greyston, crossing over Eureka]. Because of the unique nature of the episode – and her dual role, Syfy arranged a conference call Q&A session with Scagliotti.
This call took place before the series was picked up for a fourth season, but just after news of Syfy’s cancelation of Eureka – both of which topics came up in the course of the call.
Aaron Ashmore, Smallville’s version of the iconic Jimmy Olsen, will be replacing Joanne Kelly as Eddie McClintock’s partner on Warehouse 13 – at least temporarily.
Ashmore joins the series as Steve Jinks, a young ATF agent who has the innate ability to tell when someone is lying. Mrs. Frederic [CCH Pounder] brings him onto the Warehouse 13 team following Myka Bering’s [Kelly] resignation at the end of season two to be Pete Lattimer’s [McClintock] new partner. Though Bering remains a regualr character, her character arc remains unrevealed at this time.
Details from the official press release follow the jump.
Syfy’s Warehouse 13 had a second season that both entertained like crazy and pulled in strong ratings, so it’s hard to understand why the series didn’t have a third season pick-up by the time the second season ended. Finally, the logical/inevitable decision was made and the snappy series about two Secret Service agents who snag, bag and tag dangerous supernatural artifacts has been granted that well deserved third season.
Executive Producer Jack Kenny has signed a new development deal that will see him continue to head the show’s creative team and work on new projects for Syfy.
