A Psych sequel is down but far from out. Speaking at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour on Tuesday, series co-lead James Roday maintained that, despite a scheduling hiccup with his new ABC drama A Million Little Things, a follow-up to last December’s Psych: The Movie is very much on the drawing board.
“We’ll figure out a way to do it,” Roday told reporters. “All the pieces are still there, and everyone wants to do it. We’ve got to get [co-star] Tim Omundson back to his Psychos.” (Omundson was recovering from a stroke during production of the first movie, limiting his involvement to just a cameo.)
As we reported last month, a plan to shoot the unofficially-titled Psych: The Sequel this year was put on hold due to scheduling conflicts with Roday and co-lead Dule Hill, the latter of whom is busy with USA’s Suits. (A rep for USA Network and Universal Cable Productions declined to comment.)
Last summer at Comic-Con, Roday and Hill told TVLine that they’d be game to do a second movie — and then some. “If [series creator] Steve Franks has his druthers it will be an annual thing until we’re all living in assisted living,” Roday joked. Added Hill: “As long as the Psychos have a yearning for it and a desire for it, we’d be down to keep delivering them.”
