Wait For It…


New Season Will Feature 100th Episode Milestone and Long-Awaited Two Hour Musical

NEW YORK – October 10, 2012 – USA Network’s hit comedy series PSYCH returns for its highly-anticipated seventh season on Wednesday, February 27 at 10/9c with 16 new one-hour episodes. This season, the Network’s longest running series currently on air will celebrate its landmark 100th episode and unveil the long-awaited two-hour musical.

PSYCH stars James Roday as police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he’s psychic. DulĂ© Hill stars as Shawn’s best friend and reluctant sidekick Gus, Corbin Bernsen as Shawn’s disapproving father, who ironically honed his son’s “observation” skills as a child, Timothy Omundson as Detective Lassiter, Maggie Lawson as Detective Juliet O’Hara, Kirsten Nelson as Chief Vick and Kurt Fuller recurs as “Woody” the coroner.

Season seven will explore Gus’ personal life, feature the wedding of one of the main characters and deliver new ‘Psych-isms’ crafted for the series’ legions of devoted fans, affectionately known as PSYCH-O’s. Parminder Nagra will recur as Gus’ girlfriend, exposing his romantic side and creating jealousy with Shawn. Additional guests include Katy Mixon, Garcelle Beauvais, Jeffrey Tambor, WWE’s Big Show, as well as the return of Cybill Shepherd and Kristy Swanson.

To celebrate the series’ 100th episode, PSYCH will host a mini reunion of the popular 1985 movie “Clue” featuring original cast members Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren and Martin Mull. The episode will also include guest stars Garrett Morris, Steve Valentine and returning guest star Curt Smith – of Tears For Fears’ fame – who will play himself. The long-awaited two-part “PSYCH: The Musical” – an epic nod to the colorful word of musical theater – will showcase original songs written by show creator Steve Franks and performed by the entire cast with a host of impressive guest stars including Barry Bostwick, Brooke Lyons and Anthony Rapp.

While awaiting the return of their beloved show, fans can play the Emmy nominated PSYCH: Hashtag Killer, a suspenseful thrilling “whodunit” experience allowing fans to engage in a storyline specifically created for this experience, allowing them to send and receive messages directly with Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill), in an effort to solve the case.

PSYCH’s sixth season proved to be the show’s most watched among P18-34 with 1.12 million, while showing growth among P18-49 (2.24 million) and P25-54 (2.22 million).

    This show is the best ever and should run forever as Sharon Bakaian said. It has humor and mystery in all in one! Don’t take it off please!

    Very avid fans. February does seem so far away. I like the mid season openers. January and the summer would be wonderful. Our family is just so happy to know it is finally coming back. We love the show and its quirky, funny yet wholesome script.

      E way I see it, waiting a few more months is better than having it in the fall running against shoes like the voice. Last year when they debuted in the fall their ratings hurt a bit. Id rather have it midseason than fall.

      Psych used to be a summer show, why they changed it I don’t know but if midsession is what needs to be done to keep it on the air I’m all for it.

      Are you kidding me! February is too long to wait. I expected it to return this fall. Best show on TV – cable and broadcast networks. It should stay on until FOREVER!
