It’ll be a memorable last hurrah for James Roday and his Psych cast mates…
USA Network has formally announced that the current eighth season of the 37-year-old Mexican American actor’s cult favorite series will be its last, which the last episode airing on March 26.
Roday and his Psych co-star Dule Hill made the official announcement today via video posted on YouTube.
