New Behind the Scenes Photos from Psych the Movie Set
It’s been three years since everyone’s favorite series about a psychic detective ended its run on USA. A few weeks ago it was announced that a Psych TV movie would be released in December of this year. Last week several actors from the series began assembling in Vancouver to begin filming, and some photos have recently surfaced from the Daily Hive Vancouver.
All the cast is expected to return, although Timothy Omundson (Carlton “Lassie” Lassiter), who recently suffered a stroke and is currently undergoing rehabilitation, will be filming his scenes in Los Angeles, according to creator Steve Franks. James Roday (Shawn Spencer), Dulé Hill (Burton “Gus” Guster), Maggie Lawson (Juliet O’Hara) and Corbin Bernsen (Henry Spencer) all appear in the behind the scenes photos.
OnLocationVacations posted the official tagline for the show:
The ambitious friends — along with some returning fan-favorite characters — come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own. A comedic thrill ride follows, as the wild and unpredictable Psych team pursues the bad guys, justice …and food!
Several other actors have recently converged on Vancouver, although no other casting announcements have been made beyond the original cast. Whether they are actually in the city for Psych or not is just titillating enough to spark interest in a lot of fandoms. Filming is expected to go through June 17th and may also shoot in San Francisco.
The final episode of the series has Juliet and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) leaving Santa Barbara to fight crime in San Francisco. Shawn agonizes over telling Gus he’s leaving as well in order to be with Juliet. Shawn leaves goodbye DVDs for everyone, but Gus decides he would rather go to San Francisco as well than live a boring life in Santa Barbara as a pharmaceutical rep. The story was left pretty open-ended, paving the way for this special. Psych the movie is slated to premiere in December, but an exact date hasn’t been announced yet.
