Psych Scoop: Mid-Season Premiere Super-Sized, Shawn and Gus Launch Album Cover Blitz

Get More: Exclusive, First Look

There will be a bit more to love about Psych‘s mid-season premiere — seven minutes more, to be exact.

Meaning, the show’s Feb. 29 Leap Day return will run a robust 67 minutes, a rep for USA Network confirms to TVLine.

What’s more, starting today the cabler will launch (via Video on Demand) a “Psych Preview Event” featuring a sneak peek at the Season 6.5 opener as well as bonus interviews with series leads James Roday and Dulé Hill.

But wait, there’s even more! On premiere night, USA will roll out via the show’s official website a series of customizable, sharable and insanely silly “Moving Album Covers” featuring Shawn and Gus channeling classic ’80s music archetypes.

Scroll down for an exclusive first look at one such cover.

  • Psych has been gone for so long that I had forgotten that it existed.

    • It has only been off since the middle of December. That’s probably one of the shortest breaks they’ve taken.

    • Seriously? A two and a half month hiatus is extremely short for a USA show. Most shows take a longer break over the summer. Attention span of a goldfish, apparently.

      • Yes, but it’s not summer. And it’s a fact that they have been gone way longer than most shows.
        Being a fan doesn’t mean that you have to like everything they do, you know.

  • I hate that more people don’t know about or love this show. It’s unbelievably awesome and totally re-watchable. I don’t want to even know how many times I’ve seen each episode.

  • I looked at my On Demand, and sure enough there is 46 minutes of delicious flavor (and Cary Elwes’ Desperaux (sp?) waiting for me! I will definitely check out the USA site on premiere night, because the album cover above is hilarious!

  • I can’t find the new ep on my On Demand, but that cover is possibly one of the most fabulous things to ever exist. Just another reason I love this show!

  • Spent a few minutes looking for a pineapple on the album cover. Now I just feel embarrassed. So glad they’re back!

  • I loooooove Psych! Why does this show keep getting overlooked by Emmy voters? Some of the funniest lines on television. Even Director John Landis brings it up in his interviews how good it is and how cheaply they have to make it. Come on USA! Put some money into this show and get some more eyeballs in your AWESOME series! Maybe someday they can actually film in California instead of pretending that all those rainy Vancouver backgrounds are actually supposed to be Santa Barbara.

  • Love this show! So glad it will be back soon. Pure fun and escapism. Love all the pop culture references!!

  • I love the 80s love this show has, and the silly snark is just the sugar on top.
    The Simply Red “Don’t You Forget About Me” music video parody they did was gold, and the parody of the Miami Vice opening sequence had me smiling a Cheshire Cat grin for a week… combining Miami Vice and Psych? Brilliant!

    • ITA!!!!! Also the Ebony and Ivory they did was hysterical as well. I love this show!!!!

      Comment by Michelle – February 23, 2012 07:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ebony and Ivory was the cake for me!!! I am so glad I am not the only that loves this show. Reading the comments made me smile. The one-liners are golden.
        I truly believe you have to catch this from the very beginning to even understand what Psych is about.

  • The mid-season breaks have always been shorter than the breaks between seasons…. I am sooooo glad it got picked up for a 7th Season that will probably start in the fall sometime after the break from the continuation of season 6…. I <3 Psych!!
