Update: USA has issued a press release about the additional episodes and Comic-con events
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THE SERIES’ AVID FANS GET TO VOTE ON A STORYLINE, SET TO AIR IN SEASON EIGHT
- TELETHON – In a classic “whodunit?” case with a PSYCH twist, Shawn and Gus investigate a murder that Shawn is convinced was committed by the beloved host of Santa Barbara’s annual Children’s Hospital Telethon. There’s only one problem – the host was seen by hundreds of thousands of people on live television during the exact time the murder occurred elsewhere. Can Shawn steal the show, poke a hole in this rock-solid alibi, and prove the host did it? Or will Shawn fail in front of his biggest audience yet?
- DREAM THERAPY – From acclaimed director James Roday (“Mr. Yin Presents…”, “Heeeeere’s Lassie”), comes a new vision in terror: “Nightmare on State Street!” In the episode, an exhausted Gus enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after this, nothing is ever again what it seems… He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream!
- FOOD TRUCK – When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the PSYCH Naptime Food Truck, and soon discover that the high-profit world of Santa Barbara’s mobile food business is cutthroat, insular and a place of many secrets – many of them worth killing for.
In April, USA ordered five additional Psych scripts. Now the network has decided to produce two additional episodes, extending the eighth season to ten episodes. According to Deadline, USA has already decided to produce one of the new scripts. Fans will choose the other one, voting on which of three potential storylines they would most like to see. The winning episode will be announced at the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 18.
Psych-os can cast their votes now through July 12 on the USA website.
