It is being reported that Freeform has canceled Stitchers after three seasons. The science fiction crime drama, which concluded its most-recent run last month,was one of the cable network's older shows from back when it was known as ABC Family.

The network's first procedural drama, Stitchers followed a young woman who is able to 'stitch' herself into the minds of the recently-deceased. Today's move follows Freeform's recent strategy shift to focus more on "becomers" - or young adults experiencing new life changes.

The series had its best performance during its freshman year, where it averaged roughly 900,000 viewers. While its numbers dipped in Season 2, it still ranked as the Disney-owned network's second-highest rated new series over two seasons among adults 18-49, behind only Shadowhunters. But with the the shift in programming and its numbers not picking up, the cancellation is really not much of a surprise.
