New images have arrived for Psych: The Movie, teasing the return of Shawn and Gus. After eight seasons on USA, Psych ended its run as an absurdist crime procedural. Though never a huge hit, the series would predate the genre-homaging of Community and the perception-as-superpower of The Mentalist years before both shows arrived. Thanks to the dynamic between its stars and often surrealist humor, the series amassed a dedicated audience eager for more once the show had ended. Luckily, word broke earlier this year that the series will return as a TV movie set to air next month.
Following the news of Psych: The Movie, we learned that Zachary Levi – recently cast as the lead in Shazam! – will serve as the chief antagonist. Dubbed The Thin White Duke, itself an homage to David Bowie, he’ll offer Shawn and Gus a reason to re-team with the Santa Barbara Police Department for one last case. This summer, we got our first look at much of the returning cast of Psych: The Movie alongside new details about the film. Now, a whole batch of photos have arrived featuring the characters.
USA released a series of new images from Psych: The Movie, teasing scenes from the upcoming film. We see several shots of Shawn and Gus back together, plus a tease of at least one ridiculous disguise the former will attempt to pull off.
Along with Gus and Shawn, we can see Chief Vick squaring off against Levi’s villain. The actor more than proved his comedic abilities on the similar Chuck for a number of years, so his return to the genre will be exciting. It will also be interesting to see him tackle an outright villain before becoming a hero once again in Shazam!
The photos also give us our first look at Gus together with his new love interest, Jazmyn Simon’s Selene. Gus has always had a rocky relationship history, but it sounds as if he may have found a soulmate from what we’ve heard. Simon will be one of many new characters, alongside returning Psych favorites like Ralph Macchio.
Psych may not be coming back as a series, but Psych: The Movie already promises to be exactly what fans have come to expect from the show. The lead-up to the film has seen stars James Roday and Dulé Hill promoting the show’s signature ’80s references and hidden pineapples, along with tons of inside jokes and catch phrases. For long-time fans of the series, it’s a safe bet that the movie will feature much of the same.
Psych: The Movie will air December 7 on USA.
