psych os

11 years ago today I fell in love with a show at 6 years old and have been obsessed ever since

Honestly, I’m not even sure if I watched the premiere, it’s been such a staple in my life for SO LONG that it feels like it’s always been there. I’d watch the new seasons and episodes every week with my mom. I used to aspire to be Shawn and write down all his jokes and Gus’ nicknames in a tiny book I had when I was young. I met my best friend, my sister, the Gus to my Shawn when I was 11 and we have made every joke and reference, send each other pictures of pineapples we see in general, send screenshots and played ‘guess the episode’ and it has been the best. I know we’re a smaller fandom but I can’t express how much this show has shaped me as a person and meant to me. I would rewatch it ALL the time when it was on Netflix, a sad sad day when it was taken off… anyway… Thanks James, Thanks Dulé & the rest of the cast! And thanks Steve Franks for creating the best show in my life!! Can’t wait for the movie!

Timothy Omundson will appear in Psych: The movie in some way

You’ve no doubt noticed that one important face is missing from that group shot: Timothy Omundson, who plays Detective Lassiter. Omundson is absent from the from the reunion because he suffered a stroke shortly before production began on the movie, which meant Franks and Roday, who co-wrote the script, had to rework the story.

“[Omundson’s stroke] kind of forced us to rethink a lot. First and foremost, whether or not we should be making this movie — if it even made sense and if the timing was right or not. Then beyond that creatively, how do we make that work?” says Roday, who characterizes Omundson’s recovery as “remarkable.”

After talking with Omundson and his family, they decided to forge ahead and actually found a way for their friend to be part of the experience in some capacity. “There is most definitely a way that he appears in the movie,” says Franks. “We haven’t gotten to that point [in the editing process, yet]. I can’t say for 100 percent sure that he will, but I can say like 99.99 percent that we did everything we can to get Tim in the movie.”

Roday adds: “I think we found the best way possible to keep Lassiter very much a part of what we do, set him up to succeed in the future, and still give all of our Psych-Os an opportunity to see that ridiculously handsome mug of his.”

Sorry, Psych-Os, Cary Elwes Isn't in 'Psych: The Movie'
Gus (Dulé Hill) may want to update his go-to pick-up line, because we’ve learned something that’s more messed up than Pluto’s demotion. EW has learned that Cary Elwes will not app…

Despite leaking the existence of said movie, they couldn’t make Cary’s schedule work. Maybe he’ll be in the (not official) second movie!!

‘Psych: The Movie’ Is Real, as the ‘Psych’ Cast Reunites for a New Case This Christmas

Christmas has come early for the “Psych”-os: USA Network confirms that it has ordered a “Psych” reunion movie, set to premiere this December.

“Psych” premiered in 2006 and ran for eight seasons. According to USA, the film will follow the pals gathering during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.

“‘Psych’ is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays.” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Steve and James have taken the unique brand of comedy that the series honed over eight seasons and packed it in to a two-hour movie that successfully rekindles one of the greatest bro-mances in television history.”

Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions, credited the show’s rabid fan base – who affectionately call themselves “Psych-os” – for keeping the franchise alive.

Franks, Roday and Hill executive produce the film with Tagline’s Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak.

greet each other with “Happy Tuesday the 17th” & rally cries of “Let’s Twist This!”, rewatching of the episode, and suddenly Psych gifs on Tumblr are active! It’s sort of a Psych Holiday for us. Anyway, hope all the psych fans out there had a great Tuesday the 17th!

After Psych ended it felt like all the Psych-Os went into hiding! It's so nice to see it coming back with a movie and if you ever want to talk about it, I'm here!

I know what you mean! I didn’t, though. It was just hard to find others. I was always looked for Psych stuff to reblog and share. Especially of this guy here.

Psych Still Needs More Help & Viewers!

Thank-you to all the #Psych-Os who watched #PsychRemake live last Wednesday! We managed to climb up a bit in ratings and trended during the east coast airing! But Psych is still struggling with the new crap timeslot at 9PM! I saw FAR too many Psych-Os say they couldn’t watch live. Things happen, I know there’s; work, family, sickness, afterschool sports/clubs, etc but the problem is we don’t have enough people watching Psych live right now. We don’t have enough new viewers to fill in for Psych-Os who are missing it. If you DO have to miss it live you can STILL help the 7+ days ratings by: recording new episodes, rewatching new episodes on your DVRs as many times as you can, rewatching new episodes as soon as available On Demand, downloading the new episodes on itunes, Amazon Instant & Google Play! Also when the repeated episode airs on TV! Every little bit of extra love & support helps psych!

So keep talking about Psych with everyone you see, keep tweeting about watching Psych Wednesdays at 9PM every day, keep reminding people to watch Psych live over other shows because it needs the ratings more! Even if you don’t live in the USA, you can help by spreading the word! We need all Psych-Os to keep tweeting about psych, posting on FB walls, re/blogging it on Tumblr & wearing your Psych Gear out in public! Try to get someone started on watching Psych now so they can catch up & watch season 8 live! Seasons 1-6 are available on Netflix & On Demand. Season 7 episodes can be found online by Googling and the DVD can be found $20-25 at some stores. Just keep watching, supporting & loving Psych! If this really is Psych’s last season, is this the way we want the final season to go?! Psych season 8 is supposed to be for us Psych-Os let’s keep it that way!
