Freeform is uniting two of its most popular shows – Shadowhunters and Stitchers – on one action-packed night.
Beginning with Shadowhunters’ summer preview and Stitchers’ third season premiere, the shows will air back-to-back on Mondays.
On Monday, June 5th, Shadowhunters (8/7C) finds the Downworlders picking up the pieces after Valentine’s bold move; meanwhile, on Stitchers (9/8C), the third season opens with a vital new stitch and Cameron trying to bring Kirsten back to the land of the real world.
Freeform has been a busy little network – adding a host of new programming and a fan festival on top of its major upcoming ongoing shows.
There’s Sticks, from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (‘Daria crossed with Girls’); Freeform’s Summer Fling (‘a two-day immersive celebration with performances, panels and meet and greets’), and Hollywood Movie Night with Karlie Kloss (supermodels riffing on their favorite movies).
Then there’s the new 25 Days of Christmas programming – Decorating Disney (how the holidays come to life at the happiest place on Earth), Angry Angel (a young woman tries to get back to heaven after she seriously messes up), and Life-Size 2, starring Tyra Banks.
The network also a new partnership with Time Inc.’s People to develop multiple scripted, original movies.
Alone Together – from the comedy entity known as Lonely Island – follows the exploits of Esther (Esther Povitsky) and Benji (Benji Aflalo) – true platonic friends – as they try to gain acceptance from vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles.
Alone Together will premiere in early 2018. Freeform has released an almost absurdly relatable trailer.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger won’t make it debut until next year, but Freeform has already released a teaser for the series.
As a fan of the original comic (too many years ago), I have to say that the trailer captures the essence of the comic – the duo’s situations prior to meeting each other; the hesitance as they discover their nunique bond, and, of course, their powers.
There’s even a very cool shout out to Cloak’s comics costume (blankets can do weird stuff…).
