C’mon, Son! A ‘Psych’ Movie Is Finally Happening
Listen up, Psychos! Shawn, Gus, and The Blueberry are coming back for more ‘Psych’.
Are you ready for the ultimate pineapples galore, people?
Since Psych aired its series finale back in 2014, us Psychos (hardcore fans of the show and not actual “psychos”) have been waiting patiently for a reunion. Apparently the TV gods have witnessed enough of our ugly crying because Shawn and Gus are coming back to wreak more havoc in Santa Barbara.
The Psych gang is reuniting to make a movie which will start filming on May 24th in Vancouver and San Francisco. Although details surrounding production and the storyline are unknown at this point, it’s safe to assume that it will be a TV movie featured on USA Network.
Would it be too much too ask for an Adrian Monk cameo since Shawn and Gus are already going to be frolicking through the streets of San Francisco? Just thinking about Monk losing his sanity around these two beautiful buffoons is sending us in a tizzy!
When USA announced that Season 8 would be the final season of Psych, the network certainly left a door open for a future reunion. “Psych has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy,” explained Chris McCumber, president of USA Network. “The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run. And while the series will wrap in March somehow I don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus.”
That’s precisely why news of a stand-alone movie does not come as a surprise to us Psychos. The beloved comedy was one of the rare cable dramas with a solid viewership, and it even surpassed the 100 episodes mark. Not too shabby for a couple of highly observant weirdos who love to shout “Suck it!” at the top of their lungs!
