Three years after the show ended USA Network has decided to bring the team behind the wildly successful Psych back for a two hour holiday event this December called Psyhic: The Movie according to Variety. The show was one of the major hits for USA which ended on a respectable eight season 120 episode run in 2014. The TV movie event is going to bring back to original cast and creator.
"'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."
The Psych movie will reunite fake psychic Shawn (James Roday) and his best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) during the holidays to solve a case when a mystery assailant targets someone close to them. Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen), and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) are all set to return which will take place three years after the series finale.
"'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,'" added 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!"
Production for Psych: The Movie will begin on May 24th for a December release.
