Holy Lavender Gooms, ‘Psych’ Has Been Renewed!

Whip up a pineapple beverage and do a little Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) happy dance: Our favorite fake psychic and his BFF have been renewed for a fifth season on USA.

The 16-episode fifth season will launch in summer 2010 and, like other Psych runs, will be split into two halves, with the back set of eps likely to premiere in 2011.

In fact, the second half of the show’s fourth season premieres in January (Jan. 29 is the tentative date), with an episode that introduces Juliet’s (Maggie Lawson) brother, played by wrestler/actor John Cena.

There’s also an upcoming guest appearance by Judd Nelson, and, in an episode that James Roday teased when I interviewed him in September, Juliet’s college boyfriend also pops in, and makes a certain big faker really jealous.

My Psych Magic 8 Ball predicts it’s going to be another fun batch of episodes.

10 Reasons to Be Psyched About ‘Psych’ Season 4!

Season four … it’s amost here! To help wile away these last few days ’til Shawn, Gus, Lassie and the gang hit our screens again (August 7, 10PM ET, USA), 10 reasons to be fist-bumping Psych-ed about the season ahead:

1. The Guest Stars!
The season’s guest stars include Cary Elwes, Rachel Leigh Cook, James Brolin, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Robert Patrick, David Naughton, Tom Wilson (Biff from Back to the Future) and Christine Baranski

2. The Bobbleheads!
Shawn and Gus bobblehead dolls: They talk. And they bump fists.


3. The Storylines!
Among season four’s storylines: a western-themed episode (with Brolin), a Bollywood-themed episode (with Ramamurthy), an exorcism, the attempted murder of Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), more jabs at The Mentalist and the continuation of Shawn’s relationship with girlfriend Abigail (Cook) – sorry Shawn (James Roday) and Juliet (Maggie Lawson) fans

4. The Season Premiere!
“Extradition: British Columbia” finds Shawn and Gus (Dule Hill) trying to capture Despereux, a wily international art thief (guest star Elwes)

5. The Books!
Psych textbooks: meh. Psych novels: fun! Check out Psych: Mind Over Magic and Psych: A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read

6. The Nicknames!
Lavender Gooms … the nickname by which all other nicknames should be measured. Of course, it’s just one of many faux monikers Shawn has slapped on Gus throughout the seasons, as this YouTube clip illustrates.

7. The Comic Con Panel!
Watch the cast and producers’ Comic Con 2009 panel, which includes lots of cast and character tidbits, Dule Hill showing off his dancing skills and the scoop on the real Lavender Gooms (she’s a real person!)

8. The Episode Titles!
Among season four’s other episode titles: “High Noon-ish,” “He Dead” and “You Can’t Handle This Episode”

9. The Pineapples!
Are you a fan of Psych? And a fan of delicious flavor? Then the perfect season premiere snack is, of course, the official fruit of Psych, the pineapple. Check out the many, many pineapple recipes at and submit your own pineapple recipes to the official Psych Website.

10. The Theme Song!
The show’s promos are almost as good as their episodes. Season four’s discussion between Shawn and Gus about a new theme song for the show is a classic. Of course, Psych already features one of the most infectious TV theme songs of all time, “I Know, You Know,” by The Friendly Indians, the band of Psych creator Steve Franks.

The ‘Psych’ Countdown Calendar

The Psych season four premiere is less than a month away (August 7, 10PM ET, USA Network), and to help the countdown, um, count down a little faster, USA Network has launched a calendar, or what the show’s official Twitter-er calls the “TV equivalent of holiday Advent calendars.”

Each day features a little treat or sneak peek of the new season for fans, and among the goodies so far: A pic of the Psych episode that features guest star Cary Elwes as an art thief who rankles Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), a page from Shawn’s (James Roday) high school yearbook (where, of course, he’s baking something that includes a pineapple ring), show trivia and a tribute to The Blueberry, i.e. Gus’ (Dule Hill) little blue car.
By the way, you can follow Psych at Twitter via the show Twitter, the Psych Writers Room and the USA Network Twitter.
