Psych Pscoop: Jennifer Finnigan Cast as Bonnie to Jason Priestley's Clyde

USA Network likes Jennifer Finnigan, they really like her.

Having just recently chosen the Close to Home alumna as the female lead for its new Wild Card pilot, the cabler also has tapped the actress to guest star on Psych — and TVLine has the details on her juicy role.

In a Season 6 episode titled “Neal Simon’s Lovers Retreat,” Finnigan will play Barbie, a comely con woman whose partner in crime is no less than Jason Priestley (or at least a Harley-riding nogoodnik played by the former Beverly Hills 90210 good boy).

Barbie and Clive set their scamming sights on a spa resort — the same one where Shawn and Juliet are enjoying a weekend getaway.

Tony Hale also guests in the episode, as the owner of an imports/exports business. (Art Vandalay?)

Psych‘s sixth season is set to premiere… “this fall.” (Sorry, that’s still the vague timetable.)

  • I don’t like that Psych isn’t premiering until the fall. I always look forward to it in the summer! It just feels weird without it!

  • Agreed!!
    It doesn’t feel like summer without Psych on the tube!!
    But, it sounds like season 6 will be the best yet!

  • The indefinite premiere date makes me think it will later (october/november) rather than sooner, and that it will be used to launch one of USA’S new yet to be officially announced fall shows.
    I enjoyed Jennifer Finnigan on Better With You this year, so I’m sure she’ll be good on Psych as well.

  • She also guest starred on “The Dead Zone” way back in the day when that still aired on USA lol.

    And add me to those who wish Psych was airing now instead of “in the fall,” although I STILL can’t believe it’s USA’s longest running show.

  • “Barbie and Clive’ – hee,hee. Love it. Only on Psych can they get away with that.

  • Awesome. Never watched Psych before, but I love Jennifer Finnigan. And anything that puts Tony Hale back on my television is inherently excellent.
