Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Parminder Nagra PsychIs Gus’ losing streak in the romance department about to come to an end on Psych? My sixth sense is telling me it is. Well, that and this next scoop.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Wednesday’s cancellation of Alcatraz has freed Parminder Nagra up to join the USA dramedy’s Season 7 cast as a major new love interest for Dule Hill’s forever bachelor.

SPOILERS | Get the Latest Scoop on House, Glee, Criminal Minds, CSI, Once Upon a Time and More!

The ER vet will appear in multiple episodes as Rachel, a beautiful and charming woman who Gus falls for. Seemingly, she is Gus’ perfect girl with whom he can contemplate a real commitment… until (come on, you knew there’d be an “until) it is revealed that she has a secret that challenges his preparedness for a serious relationship.

Psych‘s 16-episode seventh season is currently in production.

  • Wow, she recovered from the Alcatraz cancellation but quick! Hauser’s loss is Gus’s gain.

  • Psych scoop! Makes the long wait until October-ish slightly less torturous. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Prediction: Only good thing that will come from the cancellation of that show.

    • Prediction: Jorge Garcia will get plenty of work in the future, hopefully in something much better than Alcatraz.

  • I’m glad that Gus will have a love interest – This ‘thing’ with Sean and Jewels is getting on my nerves. Is the show staying or is this the ending? I heard the series was going off because the guys didn’t want to continue.

    • I love the Shawn and Jules thing, and its not that the guys don’t want to do it anymore its cause they have to grown up sometime and the whole reason the show is funny is cause they act like kids. The 7th season may be the last which is sad but all shows have to end sometime

  • Oh, wow. Good for Gus. :)

  • i like the casting, but would rather have alcatraz.

    • Me,too. This will be interesting though. Not as good as season 2 of Alcatraz but still interesting

  • I hadn’t heard Alcatraz had gotten canceled. That sucks I actually really liked that show. But I am excited for Gus to finally have a real love interest.

  • What’s the challenge — that she is really from 1963? :)

    Here’s hoping Jorge Garcia gets as lucky as Parmes… Padm… er… whatser name?

  • You know it was his penmanship that first attracted her. . .

  • She is too good for this show!

    Comment by Marianne – May 10, 2012 01:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Or maybe this show is too good for her! This is an amazing show! Tune in, turn on, and get with the program. The more times I watch episodes, the more I get out of it. Nuances, and details. I’m just now finding pineapples in season 1. I get sidetracked by the storyline the first time, and laughing causes me to miss a lot. Needs multiple viewings. It’s rich with content.

  • Can I use your phone? Or do you only let the WHITE PEOPLE use that?

  • Psych! I love this show! It’s the Cat’s Meow!

  • One of the things that Psych does that I always loved is Gus’ affection for truly crazy women, so I hope they continue that with this character.

    Comment by Britta Unfiltered – May 10, 2012 03:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I would like to see Gus married with children. I think it would set up hilarious situations with his regular job and moonlighting as a detective.

  • MC Clap Your Hands finally gets a girlfriend! Love it. Psych is a great show. One of my favorites. Can’t wait for the new season and to see that Henry is ok.

  • She is lucky!! all I ever wanted is my very own Gus!!

    Comment by Amy – May 10, 2012 11:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • awsome!!! really really great news, Im so happy for Gus, he deserves do be happy like Shawn and Juliet are(love them). Im not very sad that the seventh season is the last beacause then James and Maggie can do their thing, the theater and stuff.
    BEST SHOW EVER ON TV, even my 1 year old son loves it beacause Shawn and Gus look so funny.

  • Season 7 is not the last season(unless the world really does end later these year) they sign up for two more season.

  • When is Gus going to get with a sista! Mira does not count!!

  • Everyone think that she could be a killer and not be able to because the police have ben looking for her for a while

    Comment by Jared – May 11, 2012 09:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Its about darn time Gus got a leading lady! Poor guy has had the worst luck with the ladies over the years…he deserves some happiness. Hopefully the ‘secret’ won’t be a deal breaker. I love Parminder! Been a fan since ‘Bend It Like Beckham’.

  • If the show is going to be cancelled please please please wrap up all of the storylines!!!!! Also are the main characters still dating in real life?

  • My wife turned me onto this show and I’m glad see did. The hardest I ever laughed at a TV show was the super-hero episode featuring Tap Man and The Catch.

    • Same here. We just flipped it on one day and we’ve been recording re-runs on ION ever since!

  • Loved the show last year when they thought Lassie shot someone and they were all wasted. Never laughed so hard….. and the donut shot…. these guys kill me.

  • Love the show! The characters and the writing are superb. I live near Santa Barbara where the storyline takes place even though its normally not filmed there it portrays the city beautifully and does the city proud as Gus would say.

  • Absolutely love this show, but has anyone else ever noticed all the liberal propaganda? I love lassiters attitude but why do they make him out to be a racist hippie hating ” typical conservative” kind ticks me off as a typical conservative… and what’s with all the prius’s…
