Psych Scoop on Harry Potter-Themed Episode Set in 'London' -- Plus: Is Season 8 the End?

Psych Season 8 SpoilersIf Psych‘s upcoming eighth season turns out to be its last, USA Network’s long-running laugh-riot is going out with a bang.

Series creator Steve Franks, who dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite with series stars James Roday and Dulé Hill, confirmed to me that the show is heading to London for an episode inspired by Harry Potter — but there’s a twist (actually two twists): The show isn’t literally going to London. And Psych‘s take on Potter will feature a, ahem, “Guy Richie gangster” element, per Franks.

VIDEO | Psych Season 8: [Spoiler]’s Back!

Press PLAY below for more on that episode, as well scoop on the “creative” way producers are working around Maggie Lawson’s new scheduling conflict and the latest on the possibly-imminent series finale. Oh, and you’ll also get proof Dulé is the biggest spoiler whore in all the land — yep, even bigger than yours truly.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. A says:

    OH MY GOD. Psych and Harry Potter!!! I can’t wait.
    BTW I loved this interview. Dulé killed me. He’s hilarious!

  3. Joey says:

    Great and funny interview. I can’t wait for the London episode.

  4. david says:

    i loved the interview its so well done :)

  5. dude says:

    this season will be off the hook but the hinting about it being the end needs to stop lol. long live Psych

  6. tracy robinson says:

    Loved the interview but couldnt believe the interviewer had never heard of Vinnie Jones! isnt he supposed to be a media expert? Bit of a lightweight in the film and tv department im assuming. Vinnie has a nice re occurring role in the american Sherlock at the moment, as a villain of course!

    • wordsmith says:

      Oooh, them’s fightin’ words, Ausiello! Seriously though, you may not recognize the name, but everybody knows who Vinnie Jones is. He’s like one of the most recognizable character actors in the world.

    • what! says:

      Yea, right! It also seemed like Ausiello didn’t even know who Guy was! Ha!

  7. Pat D. says:

    Didnt they confirm that season 8 was the last? I didnt think it was still up in the air…

    • Andy says:

      It hasn’t been confirmed yet. They are only being given 10 episodes for this season instead of the usual 16 though. It would seem, sadly, that the writing is on the wall.

  8. Kat says:

    Please…….one more year! I’m not ready to say goodbye yet!!

  9. what! says:

    Hold up, a Harry Snatch/Guy mash-up!? How dare they do that to Ritchie! Ok, I’ll still watch, it’s going to be hilarious. What I got from this great interview was, PSYCH is never ending!

  10. Gus/Dule killed,this cannot be the last season.

  11. Susan says:

    Can’t wait for this next season!

  12. GTS says:

    James Roday was just stroking whatever that TV Line thing was (fanny pack?).

  13. TrashBash says:

    i LOVE that Ausiello has no idea who Vinnie Jones is. Why should he !

  14. CallusDew says:

    Is that a Killer BOB t-Shirt!?

  15. ujai says:

    wow ausiello is a real dick!

  16. PB says:

    How do you cover entertainment and TV and not know who Vinnie Jones is? He was just on Elementary this season. And I don’t even watch that show. C’mon. Tighten up.

  17. Lily L says:

    Glad to hear there is a season 8. I thought with Maggie Lawson getting another show that Psych was no more. Thanks for this interview. It was interesting to see the difference in real personalities for Dule and James. Dule is the energizer bunny, whereas James seemed very lay back. Dule Hill is also quite the comedian. OTOH…those peach colored pants…

  18. TVLine_FanGirl says:

    Dule was awesome, but James said NOTHING and seems to be totally out of it??? That seemed to be really weird

  19. Kayla says:

    Dule was so hilarious here! Picking the lint off his pants, talking constantly while everyone is talking, lulz.

    The insinuation that Aus doesn’t even watch the show is something I TOTALLY believe.

  20. Please, please don’t cancel Psych! My husband and I love this show, it is the best show we can find available. Love all the characters! We laugh continuously!

  21. Fairy Queen says:

    Don’t cancel Psych!!! Great show!!

  22. Chara says:

    Please don’t let this be y’alls final season I love everyone of the characters I have watched every season you akl will be missed very much:(
