Psych Renewed for Season 7; USA Tells Facebook Fans First

Amid Facebook status updates of your friend's riveting vacation pictures from Fresno and a Tweet from your aunt about something Jesus did today, you may have noticed that Psych has been renewed for Season 7.

The news was revealed in a video by stars James Roday and Dulé Hill, as part of a puzzle that was slowly assembled on the show's Facebook fan page. How cool is that? Screw the middlemen, screw the PR folk, screw those stupid web sites like TV.com, those two guys went straight to the fans and let them know first. Why can't other shows do it like this?

Season 7 will consist of 16 episodes and air later this year. USA brass was in on the social-media reveal, saying, "It was exciting to deliver this historical news to them first and before traditional media." Even though it makes my job harder, I am very much okay with this, and I encourage other shows to do the same. I can't wait for Alison Brie to knock on my door and let me know that Community is coming back for Season 4.

Now someone please find Mr. Roday a darned belt!


The second half of Psych's sixth season begins February 29.

I'm very glad! And not just because I'm a huge fan of the show, but because I'm hoping they'll redeem themselves after season 6 (let's face it, it's the worse season by far. I'm really hoping they'll go back to that fun energy they had in the much earlier seasons).

Canceled the 4400 but this mind numbing medicated snorefest lingers on. Makes sense.

whedonrules is right on both accounts, whedon does rule, and the show should be winning awards all over the place, it's very well written (though simple) and one of the funniest shows on television

Yes! One more year of awesome Psych Comic-Con panels and swag. I still have my Psych Magic 8 Ball with 20 sayings from the show from season 3 or 4's panel.

Great news. The most underappreciated crime fighting duo on television today and the best two actors who have created two timeless television characters to never get nominated for anything. Great news; happy for all the cast and crew.

I sensed this would happen--psychically, of course.

one of the best shows on tv, although every once in a while i wish they'd deviate from the blatantly obvious manner in which every episodes unfolds.



and, i mean, lets see him deal with a number of people finding out.. maybe not vick, but jules or lassie would be fun, although the former kind of breaks them up, so lets go with lassie; proof but not enough to convict so to speak.. i don't know.. something bad happens, shawn accuses the wrong people based off incomplete information, and then he figures it out with some help from Gus, his father, or Woody..

Remember Abed's Cougar Town appearance??

How cool would it be to try and spot Abed on Psych?

What if he's holding a pineapple??

Awesome. One of the best and yet still underrated show there is. Thank you USA for keeping them coming back. They know what they are as a show and they do everything they do well. And when they rip on The Mentalist, it is hilarious.

YES YES YES :) Psych's interaction with the fans is phenomenal. Seriously. Huge Twitter presence, and Dule Hill and Tim Omundson are especially awesome at replying and interacting. So glad this show's been renewed... But, it was never a question anyhow ;) You can't deny their awesome :D

Absolutely fantastic. Been a huge fan of Dule Hill since season one of "The West Wing" and he hasn't let me down yet. First came upon Roday with this show here, and he seems like just a hilarious guy. Awesome show, enjoying it all.

This might be the only "procedural" I watch. James and Dule are gold. They totally replaced JD and Turk as best bromance.
