In addition, the network has also picked up Stitchers, its first-ever procedural drama about “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.” Jeffrey A. Schechter (Overruled!) will executive-produce and pen the pilot.

Stitchers is new ground for us and I’m excited to bring procedurals to the network,” ABC Family President Tom Ascheim said in a statement. “We think our fans will love the intricate mysteries that Stitchers will solve week to week as much as they love our relationship-driven dramas.”

TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard has been updated with the Young & Hungry news.

    Yeah! Charming program

  2. John NYC says:

    Welcome news: though very unexpected. Overall a cute show.

  3. johnhelvete says:

    Glad for Young and Hungry, the cast was solid and worked well together. Stitchers not sure about, the logline does not interest me. Unstrung, the tennis drama is not going forward. Recovery Road, the rehab show is still in contention, and that show is based on a very good book.

  4. LADY_in_MD says:

    With the way they left off in the finale I was hoping for a renewal this show was a great summer addition to my DVR :-)

  5. Eliza says:

    I enjoyed the 1st season of Young and Hungry. Cute show. Great cast.

  6. Mick says:

    So Stitchers is basically Dollhouse or even closer to iZombie without the zombies?

  7. Tom says:

    about time!

  8. c-mo says:

  12. Candice says:

    I was hoping it would get renewed.

  13. Kay says:

    YAY! Thank goodness they didn’t cancel this one!!

  14. ChrisGa says:

    I enjoyed Young and Hungry and am happy to see it get a second season. Jonathan Sadowski is beyond swoon-worthy in my book and the support crew is fairly aces. However, I could live the rest of my life without Emily Osment, who tries way too hard at every turn to the point of being utterly grating, the end result being the exact opposite of charming.

  15. jhene says:

    Outside of PLL their mystery dramas never work. Stitchers will flop

  16. E says:
