The Psych movie franchise is a continuation of the original series, which aired on USA Network from 2006 to 2014.
The first installment, Psych: The Movie, aired on USA on December 7, 2017. It follows Shawn, Gus and Juliet’s new life in San Francisco. The gang reunites after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.
The sequel Psych 2: Lassie Come Home, originally produced for USA, premiered on Peacock at launch in Spring 2020. The film focused on Lassiter, who 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 (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) return to Lassie’s side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional and possibly the supernatural.
Psych 3: This Is Gus hails from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Thruline Entertainment. Series creator Steve Franks will serve as executive producer and director. Chris Henze will executive produce for Thruline. James Roday Rodriguez and Dulé Hill will also executive produce. Franks and Rodriguez will co-write.
