USA Network To Produce Two-Hour TV Special Psych: The Movie

USA Network has announced that it will revive its retired TV sitcom Psych for a new special called Psych: The Movie.

Originally debuting in 2006, the program revolved around the adventures of a young crime consultant who claims to have psychic powers and his best friend who tries to rein in his mischief. During its run, the show proved very successful and ran for eight consecutive seasons before concluding in 2014.

Three years after the series finale, however, the network has resolved to breathe new life into it for a two-hour special that will premiere this coming December. Series leads James Roday and Dule Hill have already been confirmed to return for the movie, with regulars Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, and Corbin Bernsen also being said to be ready to reprise their roles as well.

Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, quotes NBCUniversal Entertainment Networks chief Chris McCumber as saying the following about the TV comedy.

“Psych is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays,” says 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.”

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
