Press Release - Episode Guide for Season 3.5 - Cast Bios - Pictures - Videos


Guest stars include Cybill Shepherd, Rachael Leigh Cook, Mykelti Williamson & Jonathan Silverman

PSYCH, USA Network’s hit original series starring James Roday (“The Dukes of Hazzard”), Dulé Hill (“The West Wing”) and Corbin Bernsen (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” “L.A. Law”), will return with the continuation of its third season with all new cases on USA Network on Friday, January 9, 2009 at 10/9c. 

A quick-witted drama, PSYCH follow the adventures of young police consultant, Shawn Spencer (Roday), who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic – at least that’s what he lets them believe.  Spencer is joined by his best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and his disapproving father (Bernsen), who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child.  Also featured are Timothy Omundson (“Judging Amy,” “Deadwood”), Maggie Lawson (“Crumbs,” “Inside Schwartz”) and Kirsten Nelson (“Everwood”).

In the first episode written and directed by Steve Franks called “Six Feet Under The Sea,” Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill) are called in when Shabby the Sea Lion is found dead after being released into the wild, Shawn sets out to prove it was murder and stumbles onto a bigger conspiracy.  The third season also continues with guest-stars including Cybill Shepherd ("Cybill," "The L Word"), Rachael Leigh Cook ("She's All That," "The Babysitter's Club"), Mykelti Williamson ("August Rush," "Lucky Number Slevin") and Jonathan Silverman ("The Single Guy," "Weekend At Bernies").

PSYCH is executive produced by Steve Franks (“Big Daddy”), Kelly Kulchack and Chris Henze, in association with Tagline Pictures and Universal Cable Productions. Mel Damski (“Picket Fences”) serves as the Executive Producer/Director, Saladin Patterson (“The Bernie Mac Show”) is the co-executive producer/writer and Josh Bycel (“Andy Parker, P.I.”) is the co-executive producer/writer.

The boys are almost back, and at the official site at psych.usanetwork.com, fans can countdown the days with the "PSYCH Countdown Calendar" featuring new content everyday. Viewers can play along with "Shawn’s Nickname Generator" and even check out the cast’s yearbook photos in PSYCH Yearbook Superlatives."  As always, PSYCH fans can watch new "Psych-Outs," view full episodes, read writer commentary on each episode and play fun games featuring their favorite fake psychic detective.
