‘Psych’ set to return for Holiday Special

PSYCH-O’s, boy have we got some great news for you. Three years after the finale aired, USA Network and Universal Cable Productions have announced that this year we’re getting a one off Holiday special.

Are you excited? Because we’re super excited.

PSYCH: The Movie has been written by original series creator, Steve Franks (who will also direct), and Shawn Spencer himself, James Roday, and will feature the return of all your favorites. Besides Roday, series regulars Burton ‘Gus’ Guster (Dulé Hill), Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) will all be back for the fun.

The 2-hour feature will take place 3 years after the original series finale, and according to the press release “The ambitious friends — along with some returning fan-favorite characters — come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own. A comedic thrill ride follows, as the wild and unpredictable PSYCH team pursues the bad guys, justice …and food!” Who wants to start speculating who those returning fan favorites will be (please include Cary Elwes, PLEASE include Cary Elwes).

PSYCH is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays.” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Steve and James have taken the unique brand of comedy that the series honed over eight seasons and packed it in to a two-hour movie that successfully rekindles one of the greatest bro-mances in television history.”

PSYCH has an absolutely phenomenal and constantly refreshing fan base. We couldn’t be more thrilled to gift our Psych-os this holiday season with PSYCH: THE MOVIE,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions. “Steve, James, Dulé and the rest of the gang are all returning for a delightful holiday movie that will not – nay, dare not – disappoint!”

PSYCH: The Movie will air on USA Network in December 2017.
