James Roday’s Psych days have been extended by two weeks…
Shortly after ordering five additional scripts of its veteran series Psych, USA Network has ordered two additional episodes for the dramedy’s upcoming eighth season.
The total order for what will most likely be Psych‘s final season now stands at 10 episodes.
For one of the extra episodes, USA executives picked among the five extra scripts. For the other, the network is letting the show’s fans choose from three episodic storylines. The episode that gets the most votes will be produced, with the winner announced at the Psych Comic-Con panel on July 18, hosted by returning guest star Cary Elwes.
USA originally ordered eight episodes for Season 8 in December, ahead of the show’s delayed seventh season.
Here’s a look at the storylines Psych fans can vote on starting tomorrow:
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.
