Psych First Look: The Season 6 Scene Everyone Will Be Talking About! Plus, Musical Update!

Psych fans who were, well, psyched about my colleague Matt Mitovich’s scoop last week that the USA Network series will return to the airwaves in October have another reason to do the happy dance right this very second. We’ve got a clip from the show’s upcoming sixth season – unveiled at the Psych panel at Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon —  that’ll have your jaw hanging somewhere in the vicinity of your keyboard. I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say the scene involves a polygraph test, a declaration of love, and a question our protagonist Shawn Spencer (James Roday) really, really, really doesn’t want to answer. (Oh, and scroll down past the video for some added info revealed at Comic-Con about upcoming guest stars, the long-rumored Psych musical episode, and a denouement to the serial-killer arc.)

In other news from the Psych panel…

* Series creator Steve Franks admits he spoke a little too quickly about Psych getting in touch with its inner Broadway baby. “I’m a big liar because I promised them the episode we were shooting on Monday [would be a musical episode],” he said. Shortly thereafter, howeverm Franks realized he couldn’t write music that quickly, so the song-and-dance act won’t happen till the Season 7 premiere.

* The serial killer arc is wrapped up, but Roday says there’ll be “something creepy” toward the end of the coming season. Adds Franks: “You’ll be shocked.”

* On the docket as Season 6 guest stars: Anthony Anderson, Jennifer Finnigan, Tony Hale, Cary Elwes, Jaleel White, Kenan Thompson, Joey McIntyre, Buffy‘s Tom Lenk, Malcolm McDowell, Michael Trucco, Diedrich Bader, Jason Priestley, Wade Boggs, Molly Ringwald, Corey Feldman, Danny Glover, and William Shatner.

  • I can’t believe they’re gonna leave us hanging on that question until October! Not Right!!!!

    Comment by Kim – July 21, 2011 01:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My guess is he will say “YES” and the polygraph won’t show a lie, because he’s actually answering to his dad:
      Henry: You have to answer that one, Shawn.
      Shawn: Yes (I do).

      • Smart! Not sure if that would work, but I like it!

        Comment by Lindsey – July 21, 2011 06:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • But that would be a lie. I mean, if he said “yes” to his father, then he wouldn’t be answering the original question. So it would be a lie that he had to answer it.

        Comment by Madelyn – July 24, 2011 12:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Actually, that could be a truth (eventually he will have to answer that question)

          Comment by Tate – September 29, 2011 02:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • totally agreed! and i hope its right

        Comment by tes – August 29, 2011 10:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • actually they left us hanging on that question till october before you saw that clip if you saw the last episode of season five, when lassiter gets the lie detector, and at the end of the episode calls sean in for questioning with it. Most people would know the only question lassiter actually cared about “Are you psychic?”

  • Oh man! That was all kinds of awesome. WHY CAN’T I HAVE PSYCH NOW?!! *cries* Gah! I desperately miss this show. I hate you USA. Your new shows are stupid and lame and I neeeeeeeeed Psych now. Don’t think I don’t hold grudges…just ask the CW and ABCFamily.

    Comment by Rae – July 21, 2011 01:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • well there wouldn’t be psych if it weren’t for USA so yeah u can see season 1-4 on play instantly netflix and can mailorder the DVDs 4 season 5

      • if this is the season finale and it’s not answered until the season after this one I will quite literally die

  • Had to rewatch the clip a second time. SO. VERY. EXCITED. FOR. SEASON. 6! What an amazing show.

    Comment by Cass – July 21, 2011 01:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ahhhhh I can’t wait until October for Psych to start. The show pretty much has ran year long before. Why oh why do we have to wait so long. This is the only show that I find myself laughing out loud to

  • Corey Feldman twice! Nice!
    But seriously… Tom Lenk!!!!!

    Comment by Jamie – July 21, 2011 01:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • we had the exact same reaction to tom lenk. tom lenk!!!

      Comment by murley – July 21, 2011 02:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Awesome!! But is there a reason why Feldman was listed twice?

    Comment by Gin – July 21, 2011 01:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I just started to re-watch my Psych DVD’s and I was wondering how long until Shawn would be forced to answer that question, granted I figure he be under oath testifying on one of his cases he solved.

    Comment by Zak – July 21, 2011 01:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I knew he was getting close in Shawn 2.0

  • Corey Feldman will guest star twice?

    Comment by mst3k – July 21, 2011 01:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am going to join in with everybody else and say I can’t believe we have to wait until October! That is so mean, but at the same time, it looks like it is going to be so worth it.

    Comment by Kimberly – July 21, 2011 01:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Maybe he could fool the lie detector… But then maybe Jules would be sad because she would think he didn’t really mean he loved her. I can’t wait for the new season to start!

    • Exactly what I was hoping

  • Something tells me that one is from the Hangover episode! Dang it, October needs to get here now!

    Comment by Kathy – July 21, 2011 01:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Oh, I soooo want a sequel to ‘American Duos’ – except this time the Tim Curry-less judges actually think Shawn & Gus are ‘emotionally perfect’ and definitely ‘in it to win it.’ (Gus: ‘We’re really not.’) They would need to bring the amazing Gina Gershon back – she deserved an Emmy last time. But we need a ‘steven tyler’ – maybe Dave Grohl would do it? Or Jon Bon Jovi??

  • There are certain times where it is not acceptable to leave a open ended preview..this is one of those times…grr…how I long for October.

    Comment by Justis – July 21, 2011 03:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Awwww this scene is so cute. Plus the cliffhanger… not fair to make us wait for October but i can’t wait… i love psych!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Anna – July 21, 2011 03:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Aww. His dad just gave him an out. Here’s hoping Shawn catches his Dad’s prompt and answers him truthfully to get out of Lassiter’s question.

    Comment by Spike – July 21, 2011 03:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow, that scene was amazing! But having to wait until October and now I have this cliffhanger. Jules was so cute when she peaked to see the answer.
    And good catch for those who say the Dad might have given him an out. I didn’t think of that.

    Comment by lindsey – July 21, 2011 04:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sooooo psyched for October! Too far away. Really psyched about the list of guest stars. Should be a great season!

    Comment by Denise Dalmas – July 21, 2011 04:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • AHHHH!!! I just want to see the rest! Can’t wait for October! This season is going to rock! Sorry for all the exclamation points.

    Comment by Marlene – July 21, 2011 05:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Awesome! I can not wait. I hate that it doesn’t air to Oct. It stinks that great shows like Psych,Eureka,etc all have way too long breaks between new episodes.

  • WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH! :D

    Comment by Annie – July 21, 2011 05:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Nooooooo!!! They can’t leave us hanging there until October!!! Oh, USA Network, why must you be so cruel with your scheduling?!

    Comment by Tiffany – July 21, 2011 08:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Steve Franks said that the musical ep would have to wait till the season 7 premiere, so there WILL be a season 7, just in case there was any doubt! AWESOME clip!!!!!

    Comment by Debbie – July 21, 2011 09:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Jeff Wachtel made sure to clarify that. Psych’s not guaranteed a season 7; it’s still going to need renewal-worthy ratings. So let’s all make sure to get Nielsen viewers to watch!

      Comment by Tiffany – July 21, 2011 09:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think it shows soo much faith in this show that they are willing to wait and put it up against the big boys in the fall! Emmys ’12 here we come! Leave room for Roday and Dule in Lead Actor category. Whaaat? Steve Carell will make a slot available.

  • the first time I heard of pysch, I was in target with my cousin. He picked it up off the shelf and I was like what is that??? After the first show I was hooked. James Rodey is my cousins hero. I love him too. I LOVE U PYSCH!!!

  • October means that school will have started up again, but I don’t care! I want October to come now because that means Psych will be here! I can’t wait, and I wish this video wasn’t a cliffhanger!

    Comment by Julia – July 22, 2011 09:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • He might go a route like, “I see things that others do not. Make connections that others do not. Call it what you will.” Something like that.

    Comment by Karen B – July 22, 2011 10:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • That looks awesome. My Summer has seriously been lacking because of Psych being put off until the Fall. Like everyone’s mentioned, October is so very far away and that’s a cruel preview. I’ll just have to be content with White Collar, which is fine. I am glad to see Cary Elwes will be back again though.

    Comment by Melynda – July 22, 2011 04:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This show is so underated! It’s one of the best on television. I don’t understand how shows like Grey’s Anatomy are so popular, yet genious shows like Psych are ignored. It boggles the mind!

    Comment by Megan – July 22, 2011 04:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Had to re-watch the clip several times, because I didn’t hear anything after “You’re just gonna have to deal with the fact that I love her!”

    Comment by GGbuttersnaps – July 29, 2011 12:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • i think that this is the season finale, but somewhere during season 6 shawn either tells Juliet or she finds out, cause she didnt look surprised when Gus changes his tag…

  • This will be the opening episode or the 2nd one

    Comment by JP – August 17, 2011 02:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My birthday is in September but I would gladly blow up that oh so very long god damned month myself, then have to wait another 30 or so days for October to come around
    PS awww Shawn loves Jules, stick that in your squirrel-shooting gun Lassie

  • I vote Shawn says yes- I’m sure his Dad must’ve taught him how to fake a polygraph. It’s not actually that hard.

    Comment by dimlit – August 19, 2011 01:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah He will either say Yes and beat the polygraph or he’ll get out of answering the question either way theres 2 more seasons so if he did say no that wouldnt be the end

      Comment by Joey – August 28, 2011 07:12 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’ve been watching lots of old episodes just to tide me over until October 12. In my planner, that day ihas little pineapples all around it!!!!! I agre with everyone else: why does the wait have to be so loooooooooong……….?
