Millions of incredibly patient "PsychOs" received a pretty sweet gift from Peacock on Sunday: the opening four minutes of Psych 2: Lassie Come Home, ahead of its July 15 premiere. In the clip below, we get the first pieces of the puzzle behind the ambush that left Timothy Omundson's Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter very much worse for wear. Of course, what friendlier faces would he want to wake up to than James Roday's Shawn and Dulé Hill's Gus. Spoiler? These two could play these roles in their sleep, a ten-ton compliment to how these two can make fans forget the show ever stop airing. Though as you're about to see, Gus wouldn't mind changing up a few things – like how the whole "nicknames" thing's done:
Here's a Look at Psych 2: Lassie Come Home
Psych 2: Lassie Come Home reunites the cast once again when Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter (Omundson) is ambushed on the job and left for dead. In a vintage Psych-style Hitchcockian nod, he begins to see impossible happenings around his recovery clinic. Shawn and Gus return to Lassie's side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional, and possibly the supernatural. Separated from their new lives in San Francisco, our heroes find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds as they secretly untangle a twisted case without the benefit of the police, their loved ones, or the quality sourdough bakeries of the Bay Area. What they uncover will change the course of their relationships forever.
