Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Psych‘s series finale, stop reading now. James Roday spoke to EW about the “big get” and that pitch-perfect ending.
Tag: Psych (1-10 of 58)
Is it a coincidence that March 19’s penultimate episode of USA’s Psych — the last one star James Roday will ever direct — features his co-star Dulé Hill (Gus) running and screaming for most it? “No it is not,” Roday says. “It’s been one of the great joys of my experience on Psych, and I know our fans are equally as fond of watching Gus being in peril and trying to scream his way out of it.”
In the episode, “A Nightmare on State Street,” Gus visits a dream therapist (guest star Bruce Campbell) to help determine the true fear behind his terrifying nightmares. “In truth, he has to do so much screaming in this episode that we did actually talk about trying to find some nuance and having levels so that there was tiers to the screams. That’s a real discussion that we had,” Roday says. “And I can tell you that he honestly feels like I ruined screaming for him for the rest of his career because he blew out every scream that he had on this show. He feels like he needs to take a break for a long while before he does something where he screams again, otherwise people are just gonna identify him with this character.” READ FULL STORY

Gus (Dulé Hill) and Shawn (James Roday) are celebrating Psych: The Musical with a fist bump in this exclusive Playbill-esque poster for the upcoming melodious event that will find the duo diving into a world of mystery and music.
Fans have been waiting a very long time for the musical (it was announced back in July 2012!) but the premiere date is finally upon us. But what can everyone expect when Dec. 15 rolls around? Per a description, Shawn and Gus are must track down playwright and mad man, played by guest star Anthony Rapp, but in order to do so, they need to get help from a dangerous villain from Shawn’s past.
The two-hour song-fest airs starting at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
Pierre Despereaux is coming back to Psych.
EW can report that Cary Elwes will reprise his role as an elegant art thief on the USA show in season eight. “Always the brilliant chap, he proves to be a well of mystery as he weaves through enthralling kerfuffles, chock full of daft chaps, codswallop and smashing twists & turns that’ll leave your knickers in a knot,” according to the press release.
Kristy Swanson, a.k.a. Marlowe, will also return to the show.
One year ago, Friday nights featured the great showdown of three genre shows all airing at 9 p.m.: Supernatural, Fringe, and Grimm. Now, all of those shows can look at their Friday time slot in the rear-view mirror — Fringe because it aired its series finale in January but Supernatural and Grimm because they’ve managed to beat the odds and escape the so-called Friday Night Death Slot.
NBC has moved Grimm to Tuesdays at 10 p.m., where it will replace the canceled dating show Ready for Love. Grimm will air once more on Friday — tomorrow’s episode, “Ring of Fire,” which was preempted last week for coverage of the manhunt in Boston — and will air on Tuesdays for the rest of season 2, starting April 30.

Great Scott! Psych has reached episode number 100!
And how better to celebrate the milestone for the oft-’80s-referencing, wacky USA Network show than to salute a wacky ’80s movie? Psych’s 100th episode, which airs tonight, fully embraces its Clue theme, complete with guest stars plucked right from the 1985 film: Lesley Ann Warren (Clue’s Miss Scarlet), Martin Mull (Colonel Mustard), and Christopher Lloyd (Professor Plum).
In Psych’s nod to the cult classic, Shawn and Gus are invited to a mysterious party at a historic Santa Barbara mansion. Not long after they arrive and meet their fellow guests, there’s a deadly crime to solve, and five suspects emerge: the Butler, the Groupie, the Manager, the Author, and the Host.
The Clue theme is a good fit for Psych, not just because the show has mystery-solving and crime-fighting at its core, but because the comedy of each is very similar: farcical, frenetic, somehow pulling off a combo of being both delightfully over-the-top and packed with some solid deadpanning.

Psych returns today with a brand new season and we’re convinced Psych-os everywhere will be pleased with what the show has in store. But if you don’t believe us, trust the word of executive producer Steve Franks, who filled us in on the action that awaits us and told us why viewers new and returning should check out the new season.
1. There will be major Shules action.
Juliet and Shawn have romped around together for a while now, but this year, things are going to get pretty serious for these two love birds. “We’ve been pushing their relationship forward very slowly, and we knew as we were beginning season 7 that we [wanted to] push Shawn as much as we could this year,” says Franks. “There are a lot of things [Shawn and Juliet] need to get through to get to the place they need to be to be together forever. So I said, ‘Let’s start knocking some of those down.'” One big moment will take place at the the end of the second episode of the new season. We won’t spoil what it is, but Franks teases, “it’s life altering for a character like Shawn.”
2. Shawn’s BIG secret will be addressed
Shawn may have fooled everyone into believing he has psychic abilities for seven seasons, but Franks says the time has come to address it. “It has to be addressed at some point…we learned last year with the William Shatner episode how important honesty is for her,” he says. “So there might be some of that going on this year as well.”
3. This happens (EXCLUSIVE PHOTO): READ FULL STORY
