Mira Sorvino has been tapped to do a multi-episode arc on USA Network‘s Psych. The Oscar winner will join the seventh episode of Season 8 playing the Santa Barbara Police Department’s newest head detective, Betsy Brannigan — an incredibly sweet, adorably reserved and yet certified badass. Brannigan’s record for taking down ruthless criminals is rivaled only by her skills in sparkly craft making, and her seemingly bubbly demeanor can turn on a dime once she straps in the dual-wielded Colt .45s. She’s a scrapbooking, cat loving, crime-fighting machine. The 10 episodes of Season 8 have been widely considered to be the series’ final ones. USA originally ordered eight episodes in December ahead of the show’s delayed seventh season, which did very well. Two additional episodes were subsequently ordered; USA brass picked among five extra scripts for one episode, and for the other the network is letting fans choose from three episodic storylines.
