‘Psych’ Coming To Comic-Con 2013; Fans To Choose A Season 8 Episode

Psych Season 7 Episode 12 Dead Air (8)

t’s a big day for Psych news.

First up, USA announced that season eight will be getting an additional two episodes-expanding the number of episodes from eight to ten. But wait, it gets better; one of those episodes will be viewer’s choice. Starting today (Wednesday, June 26th), fans can choose from three potential episodes at the official USA Network page. The winning episode will be announced at Comic-Con 2013 where the Psych gang will be on hand for the fifth year in a row.

The episode choices are as follows:

TELETHON – In a classic “whodunit?” case with a PSYCH twist, Shawn and Gus investigate a murder that Shawn is convinced was committed by the beloved host of Santa Barbara’s annual Children’s Hospital Telethon. There’s only one problem – the host was seen by hundreds of thousands of people on live television during the exact time the murder occurred elsewhere. Can Shawn steal the show, poke a hole in this rock-solid alibi, and prove the host did it? Or will Shawn fail in front of his biggest audience yet?

DREAM THERAPY – From acclaimed director James Roday (“Mr. Yin Presents.”, “Heeeeere’s Lassie”), comes a new vision in terror: “Nightmare on State Street!” In the episode, an exhausted Gus enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after this, nothing is ever again what it seems… He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream!

FOOD TRUCK – When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the PSYCH Naptime Food Truck, and soon discover that the high-profit world of Santa Barbara’s mobile food business is cutthroat, insular and a place of many secrets – many of them worth killing for.

The Psych Comic-Con 2013 festivities won’t be limited to the episode reveal. Beginning on July 17th, the series will kick off two days worth of activities beginning with an exclusive midnight screening of the highly anticipated “PSYCH: The Musical,” a two-hour special episode airing this winter on USA. Hosted at the Reading Cinema in the Gaslamp district, the event will begin in the afternoon and continue with a late-night party. Event attendees will have the opportunity to download a track from the musical, courtesy of Shazam. The event is free to the public on a first come, first serve basis or fans can register to attend at Psych the Musical.

The following day the network will host a panel featuring stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson, Kirsten Nelson and creator and executive producer Steve Franks, and executive producers Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak. Meanwhile Princess Bride star and frequent Psych guest star Cary Elwes will serve as moderator. The panel will be open to all registered Comic-Con guests.
