Psych 2: Lassie Comes Home sneak peek previews first 4 minutes
Ahead of its upcoming premiere next month, a brand new sneak peek for Peacock’s Psych 2: Lassie Comes Home has been released, providing us with a preview of the first 4 minutes of the TV movie which is scheduled to premiere on July 15 on NBCUniversal’s own streaming service. Featuring the return of James Roday and Dulé Hill’s Shawn and Gus, you check out the video in the player below!
In Psych 2: Lassie Comes Home, Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter 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 Gus return to Lassie’s side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional, and possibly the supernatural. Separated from their new lives in San Francisco, our heroes find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds as they secretly untangle a twisted case without the benefit of the police, their loved ones, or the quality sourdough bakeries of the Bay Area. What they uncover will change the course of their relationships forever.
The film will follow the original duo alongside Kristen Nelson’s Chief Karen Vick, Maggie Lawson (Lethal Weapon)’s Juliet O’Hara and Corbin Bernsen (The Punisher)’s Henry Spencer. It will also feature Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke, Community alum Joel McHale and Westworld actor Jimmi Simpson.
Steve Franks will return to direct the sequel from a script he co-wrote with Roday and will be produced by Universal Content Productions and Thruline Entertainment, as well as executive produced by Franks, Roday, Hill and Chris Henze.
The series, created by Steve Franks and starring James Roday (A Million Little Things) as fake psychic Shawn Spencer and Dulé Hill (Suits) as best friend/crime-solving partner Burton “Gus” Guster, debuted in 2006 and ran for eight seasons until 2014, proving to be a ratings and critical hit through its run and amassing a cult following both during its run and following the series finale.
Once the original show wrapped, Franks hoped to continue the story in film form and got to do so with 2017’s Psych: The Movie, which received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences alike and received ratings better than many of the show’s episodes. Franks had planned five more films to follow the first and thanks to its success, USA has greenlit a sequel with all of the characters reprising their roles from the original series and is set to premiere later this year.
