Following on from 2017’s successful revival, TV Line is reporting that USA Network has given the green light to Psych: The Movie 2, another two-hour special which will see the return of cast members James Roday (Shawn), Dule Hill (Gus), Timothy Omundson (Lassie), Maggie Lawson (Juliet), Kirsten Nelson (Karen) and Corbin Bernsen (Henry).
The official logline for Psych: The Movie 2 reads:
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.
Psych: The Movie 2 was originally targeting a shoot last summer, only for Roday and Hill to encounter scheduling conflicts with their commitments to ABC’s A Million Little Things and USA’s Suits respectively. Series creator Steve Franks will take on directing duties, and has co-written the script with Roday and Andy Berman. It is slated to premiere on USA later this year.
