Psych Exclusive: Bunheads' Sutton Foster Joins Fan-Chosen Finale — Plus More Casting Scoop

Psych Cast Sutton FosterFormer Bunhead Sutton Foster will let her hair down — and scare up some fun — in Psych‘s nightmare-ish Season 8 finale.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Foster has landed a role in the USA Network comedy’s James Roday-penned installment, titled on “A Nightmare on State Street.”

Described as “a new vision in terror,” the episode — the storyline of which was decided upon by fans via an online poll — follows a sleep-deprived Gus into dream therapy as he attempts to get to the bottom of recent night terrors. After his treatment, however, nothing is what it seems, and he soon learns that “in dreams, no one can hear you scream!”

Foster guest-stars as a sweet middle school teacher who might be having a fling with a gym teacher (played by Billy Zabka, who most recently appeared on How I Met Your Mother).

Psych Cast WWE Bella TwinsTVLine has also learned that WWE Divas/Total Divas stars Brie and Nikki Bella aka The Bella Twins will appear in the same episode as “sinister, double-dutching, demonically sexy” sisters who equal parts terrify and tantalize Gus.

The star-filled season-ending episode features Burn Notice fave Bruce Campbell as Gus’ dream therapist, Dean Cameron (Men at Work) and a slew of returning guest stars, including Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), who’ll reprise her role as Gus’ mother, Kurt Fuller (Better With You), back as the Santa Barbara Police Department’s kooky coroner and Tears for Fears rocker Curt Smith.

As previously reported, Mira Sorvino will also take part in the hour (as well as a handful of episodes leading up to it), playing the SBPD’s new badass head detective.

  • This sounds like an epic season finale,just hoping it’s not an series finale.

  • so i guess if the writers, in this case roday, have already penned the last ep of season 8, they must be speculating on going on for at least one more, i.e. 9th, season, because this ep does not sound like a series finale!

    • In an interview James says that they are going to skip seasons 9 and 10 and go straight to number 11. Yeah I don’t know, but hey it’s Psych if anyone can do it they can.

    • “News,” as the name suggests, is “new” information — not “whomever Alan likes more.” Bruce Campbell was announced 10 days ago, and Sutton Foster today.

  • Sorry, but even though this episode was filmed last, it isnt the finale from what several people on set were saying.
    Shows OFTEN film things out of sequence for convenience/availability.
    “The Break Up” is the intended finale.

  • This is NOT the finale, it was filmed last but it is not going air last, an episode called “The Break Up” is the series finale YES SERIES FINALE! Psych is over after next season. At least Shawn proposes to Juliet in the finale and she says yes, so i’m grateful for that.

  • Bruce Campbell! That guy is the best! His guest appearance on 1600 Penn last year was one of the best guest roles of the entire 2012-13 season. Also glad that Woody is coming back, considering Kurt Fuller has a new show.

  • I’m looking forward to Dean Cameron. Chainsaw.. Rockula.. Ski School…
