USA will be bidding farewell to long-running dramedy “Psych,” as the cabler has announced that the detective series’ current season will be its last.
Final episode will air March 26 and will be followed by an hourlong aftershow featuring a Q&A with the cast and show creatives.
The network’s longest-running original series, “Psych,” created by Steve Franks, debuted on USA in July 2006. It ranked as one of cable’s top five series on Wednesday nights last year among key demos including adults 18-49 and total viewers. USA bowed the eighth season of “Psych” on Jan. 8 this year.
“‘Psych’ has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy,” said Chris McCumber, president of USA Network. “The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run.”
Could a spinoff be in the works, though?
The prexy added, “While the series will wrap in March, somehow I don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus.”
