USA Network has announced that a Psych Christmas movie is in the works – and the whole cast is returning!
Psych: The Movie picks up three years after the end of the show’s eighth and final season – Shawn(James Roday), Gus (Dulé Hill), Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.
Will there be pineapples? What do you think?
Series creator Steve Franks and Roday co-wrote Psych: The Movie – which is set for a December premiere.
And now, the end is near… When Psych returns on Wednesday, February 26th, it will be for its final five episodes. The gang behind the eight years of lunacy swear that that the series will end with a finale that will answer a lot of questions. An interactive post-finale special, Psych After Show, follow immediately thereafter with the entire cast and series creator Steve Franks.
In the meantime, follow the jump to check out a farewell message from series stars James Roday and Dulé Hill. It will be worth your time, fellow Psych-Os.
For years they’ve threatened to do it; for years they’ve teased us with the possibilities. Now, on December 15th (9/8C), the mad geniuses behind USA Nerwork’s hit series Psych are all pulling out all the stops for Psych The Musical!
Written and directed by series creator Steve Franks – with fourteen songs co-written by composer Adam Cohen - Psych The Musical finds Shawn, Gus and the gang tracking down mad playwright Z, who once trapped a critic in a theater while burning it to the ground. Their only informant uses songs and cryptic clues to reveal Z’s plans. Check out the press release, after the jump, for more details – including the episode’s complete playlist.
USA Network’s Psych (Wednesdays, 10/9C) returns for its seventh season with the conclusion to the season six cliffhanger that saw fake psychic Shawn’s father shot by a dirty cop. Santa Barbaratown 2, Lethal Weapon 5 pokes fun at buddy cop movies while moving quickly away from the drama of Henry’s shooting. It may not be the show’s best season premiere, but it does show that no one connected to the show is phoning it in. Hit or miss, Psych is still swinging for the fences.
James Roday and Dule´ Hill aren’t just big fans of Steven Spielberg. Being the stars of USA Network’s Psych [Wednesdays, 10/9C], they also get to play in his sandbox as the series returns with Indian Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger.
Naturally, they had so much fun doing the Indiana Jones homage/spoof that they wanted to talk about it… and anything else that came up [these guys are some kinda gregarious!].
On next week’s mid-season finale of Psych [USA Network, Tuesday, December 14th,10/9C], Shawn and Maggie’s plan to have a nice, quiet spa weekend – and taking their relationship to the level – is derailed by a couple of grifters and a Mafia-related murder.
Jason Priestly plays Clive, one of the grifters, and talked with reporters/bloggers about the experience.
The mid-season finale of Psych [Wednesday, USA, 10/9C] begins with an e-mail alerting Shawn and Gus to a ‘cinnamon festival’ in the small [so small it’s in parentheses on the computer map they check] town of Dual Spires. The guys immediately set off [they do love their cinnamon] – and find themselves in the strangest little town they’ve ever visited. Then, a plastic-wrapped dead girl turns up. The dead girl is Paula Merral, niece of the owners of The Sawmill Café – and we cut to the opening credits and… Julee Cruise singing an Angelo Badalamenti-like arrangement of the Psych theme.
Pierre Despereaux [Cary Elwes] may be the most intelligent, erudite, suave and elegant criminal that Shawn [James Roday] and Gus [Dule´ Hill] have ever put behind bars. His return makes for an enjoyable mid-season premiere of Psych [USA Network, Wednesdays, 10/9C].
USA’s Psych [Wednesday, 10/9C] has its summer finale tonight and it’s a bit different. One, Maybe Two, Ways Out finds Shawn and Gus drafted to help Nadia, a real, honest-to-goodness spy, find the one man who can erase her existence from all known databases. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that – especially considering the black ops helicopter full of shooters.
