USA is bringing back Psych for a holiday special


Way back in 2010, the USA Network’s comedy detective show Psych staged a mini Twin Peaks reunion, and with that gum already coming back in style, it’s only appropriate that Psych would get a little revival of its own. As reported by Variety, USA has announced Psych: The Movie, a two-hour holiday event that will see James Roday and Dulé Hill reprising their roles as fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer and his partner Ovaltine Jenkins, with Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, Corbin Bernsen, and Kirsten Nelson returning as well alongside other “fan-favorite characters.”

The movie will take place three years after the show’s last episode (which aired on USA in 2014), and it will be about the core Psych characters reuniting when a “mystery assailant” goes after one of them. Series creator Steve Franks will direct the movie, and he also co-wrote the script along with Roday. It’s set to air this December.


Now USA just has to bring back Monk and Burn Notice so Tony Shalhoub and Jeffrey Donovan can join the Psych guys in an Avengers-style team-up.
