Twitter once again became a legit news source last night as USA Network executive Ted Linhart announced some good news for Psych fans:
BREAKING - Psych has been renewed for an 8th season --S7 starts Feb 2013- details to come later— Ted Linhart(@TedOnTV) December 20, 2012
If for some reason the embed above doesn't appear on your Kindle Fire or Nokia text message alert, it says, "Psych has been renewed for an 8th season -- S7 starts Feb 2013 -- details to come later." However, we now know that Season 8 will only be eight episodes long.
"But Season 7 hasn't even started," you say. Correct! Season 7 starts in February, meaning creator Steve Franks has plenty of time to map out Season 8.
But why so much time? Why the super advanced renewal? Why why why? I can only relay what others are prognosticating: Season 8 could be Psych's last. Fans, what do you think—is that a bad thing, or is it time?
