The long awaited sequel to the USA tv series turned film is still on its way. That’s right folks it’s been just about 3 years since Burton and Shawn reunited and now you can look forward to the whole gang teaming up once more, but not where you normally would watch them.
Psych 2: Lassie Come Home was originally planned to launch last year but moved from USA Network to forthcoming streaming service Peacock. Lawson told Deadline that it will air this spring after the NBCU platform launches in April.
The film, which is named after Tim Omundson’s Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter, will explore the marriage between Shawn, played by James Roday, and Lawson’s Juliet after the pair’s nupitals at the end of the first movie.
“One of the things I love about this movie, this time around is, I feel that for Shawn and Juliet there’s been eight years of ‘will they, won’t they,’ then it was ‘they will,’ then there was like a little, ‘where are we, what are we doing?” and then we hadn’t gotten married yet. Now we’re married,” she said. “There’s no worry, there’s no issue. He’s doing his psychic thing and I’m doing my detective thing, but for the most part, we’re just enjoying married life.”
Written, directed and executive produced by Psych creator Steve Franks, Psych 2: Lassie Come Home focuses on Lassiter, who is ambushed on the job and left for dead. In a vintage Psych-style Hitchcockian nod, he begins to see impossible happenings around his recovery clinic. Shawn) and Dulé Hill’s Gus return to Lassie’s side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional and possibly the supernatural.
