Psych Out: USA Network Staple to Conclude in March After 8 Seasons, With Answer-Filled Finale

PsychI know, you know that this day was inevitable: Psych is coming to an end.

USA Network confirmed that the long-running comedy’s current eighth season will be its last; the closure-filled series finale — which I’m told will answer all of fans’ burning questions — will air on Wednesday, March 26 at 9/8c. It will be followed immediately by Psych After Show, a one-hour live remembrance/retrospective featuring a Q&A with the entire cast (including, of course, stars James Roday and Dule Hill) as well as series creator, Steve Franks.

Psych has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network, in a statement. “The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run. And while the series will wrap in March somehow I don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus.”

Don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus?! Are we talking a series of TV movies? A Broadway show? A cool farewell panel at Comic-Con? All of the above? As I investigate that little mystery, check out the parting gift James and Dule made this proud Psych-O below, then scroll down further to watch the pair’s farewell to fans, and then hit the comments with your Psych eulogies.

    Shawn and Gus are the best characters on TV bar none. Def a bad move USA.

    It can’t end I’m going to cry this is one of the only TV shows that all my family (from my lil bro to my grandma) watch together. I can;t end. :'( I’m crying now.

  3. Oh noooooooooo! Say it isn’t so!! I absolutely love Psych. It’s definitely on the same comedic levels as Parks n’ Recreation and The Office. And no one will ever be able to replace Shawn and Gus. -pouts with shimmering eyes- Bro Love, I’m going to miss them! Thank God for re-runs! Don’t go Gus! Don’t leave Shawn!!

    So sad to see this show.

  5. Jordy Lynn says:

    I am frustrated with this decision. We don’t have enough well acted, fun t.v. anymore. We don’t need another stupid “reality scripted” show and most of the new network shows are just garbage. Guess I’ll be watching BBC America from now on. USA just lost me for good.

  6. mrPib says:

    Eh I don’t really care for white collar and suits might as well be days of our lives for the idiotic bs drama. It’s almost as retarded as the good wife. Oh psych you will be missed as with monk before you.

    And subsequently the superstation won’t be getting any flipper time on the boob tube unless something interesting detective wise comes about.

    Just leaves elementary, (don’t really care for the new girl in NCIS) person of interest, (mentalist has gone a bit down hill since they killed johnny) and sleepy hollow when it comes back. Gonna have to check out those other 2 shows and see if they’re any good. I liked the ambulance one and the robot cop partner one.

  7. bobbie says:

    One of my favorite tv shows ever! It’s in the top 10 of all time faves, along with buffy, veronica mars, seinfeld, curb your enthusiasm, Monk, etc. There may be more than 10, but you know what I mean. One that lasts in your heart. Will always love you, Psych!

  8. psycho4ever! says:

    im crying! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! this can’t be real…the world is ending! I’m in denial! No, please, just no!!! *sobs*

  9. Shane says:

    What? What? What? What? What? -gus… this is a show for the whole family, why do you end such shows.. End the kardasian show! Ps: my daughter loves this show, bring back monk and psych.

  10. jake says:

    NO!!! Psych was my favorite show it cant end.

  11. shome KS says:

    “Uh I’ve never–I’ve never lost anyone close to me before in my entire life.
    Um Jesus, how stupid sad is this? People die it’s awful, and unfair.
    And–and, oh, my God, Gus is gonna die.”
    “I’m not gonna die, Shawn.”
    This is true, (Personification).

  12. kelly pieri says:

    I never saw an episode where I didn’t laugh out loud. Yes, the humor is immature and Shawn and Gus act like buffoons at times, but that’s why it’s so FUN. My wife and I will really miss this show. I hope USA reconsiders. Besides, they’ve cancelled Burn Notice and White Collar what else is there to watch on this network? Oh, and you high and mighty types who are too good for the rest of us and our buffoonish humor, take yourselves, and the sticks up your asses, and shuffle over to the Downton Abbey or Masterpiece Theatre websites and leave us Psych-Os to our grief.

  13. quadone2014 says:

    Shaun, Gus, if you had the opportunity to return back to being on Psych and continuing your legacy, as detectives, would you ditch the offer or come back with, “Wait for it!” and so many more cases to solve right at your fingertip, just keep doing what you love though and I hope to see you both on the Movie Screen. 80

  14. kameron tiregol says:

    This was the first and probably the las tshow like this James roday and dule hill have that prefect buddy chemistry that brings friends and family together I might me wrong about this but wasn’t the reason for the show being cancelled because maggie lawson left to do her own show, if you know what happened for real then tell me but all I’m saying is that this show was suspenseful, funny, very well acted, and entertaining, so I really believe they should finish theseason after its over and create a movie to be seen in theaters and let the world decide if they want some more psych, hell I would pay tickets and the overpriced popcornto see that, well here is my post qnd how strong and compassionat I feel about the show and probably no one will ever read this, oh well.

    Psychedy Psychedy Psych!

  16. ivy says:

    My favorite show ever. I swear it made me so happy. Me and my boyfriend watch it all the time and we just finished season 8. We cried when we found out it was going to be canceled. How sad! Please reconsider!

  17. JC says:

    It is pretty messed up that you take a very good series and dmp it in the trash when you already have enough trash series out there.

  18. Hey I think you guys should not cancel psych because it is a phenomenal show and there is so much u guys can do with the show like about opening up a new psych office and having guess find love and just contue on with there lives. This show brings me happyness the best show by far I have ever watched bring back psych

  19. Ian says:

    This is rediculouse Psych was the best tv show I have ever watched there is no other show like it trust me I have looked long and hard I can’t even watch tv anymore it bores me Psych is the best how can they do this and the ending made it seem like they May come back. CSI was horrible compared to this show and look how long it lasted it’s not fare I think we should protest LOL ill even spend money to get Psych back

  20. Christy says:

  22. Tay Tay💖 says:

    I fell in love with this show and now it’s gone I’m pissed James and Dule need to return to TV.It’s sad I watch every season everyday and also their Halloween show’s. But I will miss the old gang. Thx for pairing James and Dule…Holla💕

  23. tonya corona says:


  24. Simply gutted that Psych has finished. Brilliant show. Extremely funny. Wish all the people on the show all the best.

  25. Andrew deans says:

    Why ohhh why I should have never stopped watching psych :( i started watching with my ex and I couldn’t watch it till now, when it was over. Just saw the last episode on Netflix and I’m so sad :'( I hope someone picks it up or starts a new show with Shawn and Gus. I hate when shows end :'(

  26. blah blah says:

    look guy the truth is it had a great run and i love it but i am glad it ended because i am a true tv die hard (anime) i have seen so many great shows do the worst thing possible and that is to drag on i a glad it and while fans still loved and it could get the ending it deserved (i hope as i still have not seen it)

  27. Rachel says:

    This is soooo sad! It was such a hysterically stupid kind of funny show! It was one of the last shows without a bunch of vulgarity, cleavage and inappropriate humor. I understand everything must come to an end, but PLEASE bring more shows that are similar. I am concerned with the shows on tv now not to mention the path in which society is headed. As a parent, there are few shows I feel comfortable watching in front of kids. Do we really need vulgarity to be funny? Real humor should be gauged on its ability to be successful without foul language or shockingly inappropriate behavior and content….. 😢 Best wishes to all associated with such a great show!
