Cast Makes Triumphant Return to San Diego with an Exclusive Midnight Screening of “PSYCH: The Musical” and Comic-Con(R) Panel Discussion, Moderated by Cult Hero Cary Elwes

LOS ANGELES – June 26, 2013- USA Network, the #1 cable network, is giving PSYCH-Os what they want: more PSYCH episodes! Due to the extraordinary popularity of the show, the network has ordered two additional episodes for the eighth season, and, for the first time ever, fans will have the opportunity to vote for one they want to see appear on-air. The results will be announced when PSYCH makes its fifth annual return to San Diego’s Comic Con(R) on July 18.

Fans can start making their voices heard on Wednesday, June 26, via, and cast their vote for one of the following storylines:

· TELETHON – In a classic “whodunit?” case with a PSYCH twist, Shawn and Gus investigate a murder that Shawn is convinced was committed by the beloved host of Santa Barbara’s annual Children’s Hospital Telethon. There’s only one problem – the host was seen by hundreds of thousands of people on live television during the exact time the murder occurred elsewhere. Can Shawn steal the show, poke a hole in this rock-solid alibi, and prove the host did it? Or will Shawn fail in front of his biggest audience yet?

· DREAM THERAPY – From acclaimed director James Roday (“Mr. Yin Presents…”, “Heeeeere’s Lassie”), comes a new vision in terror: “Nightmare on State Street!” In the episode, an exhausted Gus enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after this, nothing is ever again what it seems… He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream!

· FOOD TRUCK – When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the PSYCH Naptime Food Truck, and soon discover that the high-profit world of Santa Barbara’s mobile food business is cutthroat, insular and a place of many secrets – many of them worth killing for.

The results of the fan vote will be announced in San Diego where PSYCH kicks off two days of activations starting on July 17 with an exclusive midnight screening of the highly anticipated “PSYCH: The Musical,” a two-hour special episode airing this winter on USA. The following day, the network will host a characteristically hilarious PSYCH panel during Comic-Con with the winning storyline revealed by the cast.

    I love this show. It’s original and the cast work so well together, especially the two main characters. I don’t know their relationship off camera, but on camera they are so in synch the friendship appears real, making a pleasure to watch.

    We this show is the most underrated show on television. It has great stories with great comedic entertainment. How none of these actor have not received recognition or any awards it beyond me. I hope that there will be more than 8 seasons. I always look forward to seeing gus and shawn. All the actors seem to have a lot of fun doing this series and it will be sorely missed. Please keep it on.
