A pineapple [Image by YinYang/iSt[Image by YinYang/iSt[Image by YinYang/iStock] years later, Psych fans have a new reason to get excited. According to Variety, all of the main characters will be returning for Psych: The Movie, which is set to begin production on May 24. Psych: The Movie is said to pick up three years after where the series finale ended, when Shawn, Gus, and the others will “come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.”
Psych: The Movie is co-written by James Roday and Steve Franks. They will both be executive producers, along with Dulè Hill. Franks will also direct the two-hour TV movie, which will air this December.
“‘Psych’ is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays,” said President of Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, Chris McCumber.
“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.”
Jeff Wachtel, Chief content officer of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and the president of Universal Cable Productions, agreed with McCumber’s statement. Wachtel mentioned the fans of Psych and how wonderful they are. He expressed his joy at being able to give Psych fans this “gift” of Psych: The Movie and recognized how important it is to make the movie as enjoyable as possible.
“Steve, James, Dulè and the rest of the gang are all returning for a delightful holiday movie that will not – nay, dare not – disappoint!”
Psych fans may have to wait until December for Psych: The Movie, but considering that there has not been any new content in three years, seven months is not that long a time in the scheme of things. In the meantime, Psych fans can content themselves by keeping up with production details, or maybe even rewatching the whole series from the beginning.
