“Stitchers” Season 3 star Ritesh Rajan recently helped raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer.
On his Instagram account, the actor revealed that he and his male co-stars, Kyle Harris and Damon Dayoub, will be raising awareness for the cause. Rajan is also asking for financial support in order to fund the cause. “We need your help!! We are pledging to be active every day this month, but we need your donations to keep us going… Help us kick cancer’s butt!!!” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the third season of “Stitchers” was confirmed last month. During a Facebook Live, lead star Emma Ishta and Harris announced that the Freeform series has been renewed for 10 episodes. As of late, the premiere date and timeslot for episode 1 are yet to be revealed.
Freeform executive vice president Karey Burke said that they simply listened to the fans of “Stitchers” who have been asking for another season. “’Stitchers’ passionate fanbase has been vocal about wanting to see more of this show, and we listened. ‘Stitchers’ has proven itself a consistently strong performer, and we’re proud of the fact that it celebrates smart girls everywhere,” he told TV Line.
Harris also took the time to thank the fans of the series for their support during the first two seasons. Harris’ short message on Facebook ended with Ishta’s cameo appearance. “We’re gonna come back bigger and better than ever so stay tuned. Emma, I saw that,” he said.
The filming for “Stitchers” Season 3 started on Monday, Oct. 31. Matthew Scott Kane, one of the production staff for “Stitchers,” shared a photo from the set taken on the first day of filming. “The excitement in this empty stage is ELECTRIC,” he wrote.
“Stitchers” Season 3 will premiere on Freeform sometime next year.
