USA’s ‘Psych’ Returning With Movie-Length Holiday Special
It’s been some time since USA originals ditched the sun and sand aesthetic, but Psych – it’s all coming back! Literally, in fact, as a Psych revival movie is in the works for 2017, giving the fan-favorite comedy its very own holiday special.
USA confirmed the news amid recent reports that Psych had reconvened filming for a special presentation. A two-hour Psych: The Movie is indeed in the works for December, returning James Roday and Dulé Hill to their roles as Shawn Spencer and Burton “Gus” Guster, with Psych creator Steve Franks directing a script co-written with Roday.
This December brings a true holiday miracle.

Series stars Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, Corbin Bernsen and Kirsten Nelson will return for the film, which picks up three years after the 2014 finale, and sees the characters “come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own. A comedic thrill-ride follows, as the wild and unpredictable Psych team pursues the bad guys, justice … and, of course, food!”
Psych is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays. Steve and James have taken the unique brand of comedy that the series honed over eight seasons and packed it in to a two-hour movie that successfully rekindles one of the greatest bro-mances in television history.
Additional favorites from the series are expected to return, but stay tuned for the latest on Psych: The Movie’s holiday debut.
