NEW YORK – August 11, 2011 – Continuing its strategy of year-round programming, USA Network’s longest running current original series on-air, PSYCH starring James Roday and Dule’ Hill, returns this fall on Wednesday, October 12 at 10/9c, it was announced today by Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, USA co-presidents.

From vampires to super heroes, hippie communes to mental institutions, season six of PSYCH will thrill and delight fans of Santa Barbara’s favorite psychic crime-solving team. A bevy of top names in entertainment will make guest appearances this season, including pop culture icon William Shatner as Juliet’s father; Danny Glover and Wade Boggs in a baseball escapade; Kristy Swanson and Corey Feldman in a vampire episode co-written and directed by James Roday; John Rhys Davies in an Indiana Jones inspired episode written and directed by Steve Franks; plus Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block fame, Malcolm McDowell, Jason Priestley, Molly Ringwald and WWE Superstar the Miz. This season, when it comes to Juliet, Shawn is making some grown up moves in their relationship and best friend and partner Gus deals with being a third wheel. Also, whether or not Shawn is a “real” psychic is questioned.

With nearly two million Facebook fans, this cult favorite stars James Roday as police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he’s psychic. With help from his best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus (Dulé Hill) and his father, Henry (Corbin Bernsen), they continue to solve the mysterious and often bizarre crimes of the Santa Barbara Police Department. Also starring Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson and Kirsten Nelson.

    We changed our programming tier in order to enjoy Psych again as well as Monk reruns on ION, a sample of which was given w/o charge during a recent weekend. So glad to learn that they will have a current Psych season now that we once again have USA on our lineup. This show keeps me interested and leaves a smile on my face. There is no show that I enjoy more. This is what I consider entertainment!

    Thank heavens Psych is finally on the schedule again! Since “Monk” went off the air, it’s one of the very few truly entertaining shows left.
