It’s that time again PSYCH-Os. The seventh season of PSYCH kicks off tonight with the conclusion of last season’s cliffhanger. If there was any doubt about where we were headed last season, yes, Henry is in a very bad way, and the result leads to a very new perspective for Shawn.
While a lot of shows on cable networks, even some of the best, seem to struggle if they make past a handful of seasons, PSYCH is still going strong. Not simply, “as funny as ever,” but actually continuing to develop and grow, it’s pushing itself to new heights. The continuation of “Santa BarbaraTown” (or however they expect that to be written) is just the beginning. The season will also feature a 100th-episode spectacular that includes a reunion of some of the cast of Clue, and we will be seeing “PSYCH: The Musical.”
Also, don’t miss out on PSYCH The S#cial Sector, a new eight-week multiplatform murder mystery centering around an online reality competition in which contestants are sequestered in an unknown location and one contestant is voted off each week.
When Shawn and Gus discover the eliminated contestants are turning up dead, they enlist self-professed PSYCH-Os to become their Digital Assistants and help find the location of the reality show’s house and catch the killer. Fans will help Shawn and Gus solve the case through a series of real-time communications, mini-games, crowding-sourcing challenges and an interactive Fan Theory Board where fans can post video responses to weekly challenges from the PSYCH characters.
PSYCH-O’s can follow this parallel digital storyline via desktop or tablet at SocialSector.usanetwork.com and tweet using #SocialSector.

USA Network’s hit comedy series PSYCH returns with a spectacular season seven after a surprise season six cliff-hanging finale left fans of the hit show on the edge of their seats on Wednesday, February 27 at 10/9c.
Fourteen all new episodes delve into the personal life of the very private Gus (Dulé Hill), sneak in a surprise wedding of one of our leads and push out new ‘Psych-isms’ to the devotees affectionately known as PSYCH-Os.

Guest stars include Katy Mixon, Garcelle Beauvais, Jeffrey Tambor, WWE’s Big Show, and the return of Cybill Shepherd and Kristy Swanson. Season seven will also feature the 100th episode of USA’s longest running series currently on air.
To celebrate the series’ 100th episode, PSYCH will host a mini reunion of the popular 1985 movie “Clue” featuring original cast members Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren and Martin Mull. The episode will also include guest stars Garrett Morris, Steve Valentine and returning guest star Curt Smith – of Tears for Fears’ fame – who will play himself. The long-awaited “PSYCH: The Musical” – an epic nod to the colorful word of musical theater – will showcase original songs written by show creator Steve Franks and performed by the entire cast with a host of impressive guest stars including Barry Bostwick, Brooke Lyons and Anthony Rapp.
In true USA fashion, the network is about to serve up a plethora of fun for PSYCH fans enabling them to be a part of some zany interactive digital storytelling events during the seventh season. While they await the return of their beloved show, fans can play the Emmy-nominated PSYCH Hashtag Killer, a suspenseful thrilling “whodunit” allowing viewers to engage in a customized experience in which they can digitally interact with Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill), in an effort to solve the case. The investigative skills they sharpen now will help them as they participate in an upcoming interactive, multi-platform storytelling experience giving fans a chance to become part of this digital plot unfolding during the season.
