Time to get excited, Psych-Os! It has been confirmed that the Psych movie sequel is officially in development! USA Network has formally greenlit a two-hour follow-up to 2017’s Psych: The Movie.
Production will start next month in Vancouver. The movie finds Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) going back where it all started thirteen years ago: Santa Barbara.
Check out the official synopsis for the upcoming movie:
“Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) is ambushed on the job and left for dead. In a vintage Psych-style Hitchcockian nod, he begins to see impossible happenings around his recovery clinic. Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill) return to Lassie’s side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional, and possibly the supernatural. Separated from their new lives in San Francisco, our heroes find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds as they secretly untangle a twisted case without the benefit of the police, their loved ones, or the quality sourdough bakeries of the Bay Area. What they uncover will change the course of their relationships forever.”
As first reported by TVLine, in July, plans to shoot Psych: The Movie 2 last summer were put on hold due to scheduling conflicts with stars Roday and Hill.
Check out the official poster below:
Psych: The Movie 2, which will debut on USA Network later this year. It’s co-written by Roday, Andy Berman and series creator Steve Franks. Franks will also be directing again. Roday, Hill and Franks will receive Executive Producers credits alongside Chris Henze.
Created by Steve Franks, Psych stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson, and Corbin Bernsen. Check out the synopsis below:
“A novice sleuth is hired by the police after he cons them into thinking he has psychic powers which help solve crimes. With the assistance of his reluctant best friend, the duo take on a series of complicated cases.”
All seasons of Psych and Psych: The Movie are available now on home video and streaming.
