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

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.

    Thank TV Jeesus for this! I have been without Psych for far too long. Funniest show on cable IMO.

  3. Nikki says:

    I freaking love Psych! Can’t wait!!

  4. Kayla says:

    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.

  5. Jon says:

    If you have on demand… its worth it… BEST PSYCH EVER!!!

    “Suck it” “You suck it”
    *together in harmony* “Suck iiiiitt”

    Love, love, love this show! It only gets better with time!

  12. Winnie says:

    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!

  13. Eliza says:

    This show is one of my favorites.
    I have SO much love for Shawn & Gus!

  14. Tiffany says:

    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!

  15. ME says:

    I love this show! I’m so happy it’s coming back.

  16. Michael says:

    feels like it never left

  17. Amber says:

    Oh Shawn, you so crazy, I wanna have yo baby.

  18. Templar says:

    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.

  20. Pam says:

    That picture makes me LOLz. :)

  21. Laura says:

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

  22. Summer says:

    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!

    • Michelle says:

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

      • Selethia says:

        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.

  24. jojaboi77 says:

    It’s On Demand already, i love this freakin show!!

  25. jojaboi77 says:

    The mid-season premiere’s On Demand already, i love this freakin show!!

  26. Shelley says:

    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!!
