USA's PSYCH to End Run After Current Season
PSYCH's eight-season run on USA will soon be coming to an end.
According to Deadline, the network has confirmed that its longest running original series will conclude at the end of its current season. The final episode is slated to air on March 26, followed by an hour-long after show.
"Psych has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy," said Chris McCumber, USA's president. "The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series' incredible run."
Since its premiere, PSYCH has consistently drawn strong numbers in the ever-important adults 18-49 demo, averaging around 4.19 million each Wednesday, per the report.
PSYCH is a quick-witted comedy starring James Roday as police consultant Shawn Spencer, who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he is psychic. Dulé Hill stars as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick Gus; Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's disapproving father, who ironically honed his son's "observation" skills as a child; Timothy Omundson as Detective Lassiter; Maggie Lawson as Detective Juliet O'Hara; Kirsten Nelson as Chief Vick; and Kurt Fuller recurs as "Woody" the coroner.
PSYCH is executive produced by Franks, Kelly Kulchak and Chris Henze, from Universal Cable Productions in association with Tagline Pictures. Mel Damski serves as executive producer/director. Saladin K. Patterson, Andy Berman and Todd Harthan are co-executive producers/writers. Kell Cahoon is consulting producer.
