Season 7 of USA Network’s quirky comedy-mystery series Psych premieres Feb. 27 at 10pm ET. To get fans “psyched” up for the return, USA Network and some of the Psych cast will be hosting a social media Slumber Party event this Friday, Feb. 15, starting at midnight ET (late-night Friday) and ending at 6am ET Saturday, Feb. 16.
Psych Season 7 will explore Gus’ (Dulé Hill) personal life, feature the wedding of one of the main characters and deliver new ‘PSYCH-isms’ crafted for the series’ legions of devoted fans, affectionately known as PSYCH-Os. Parminder Nagra will recur as Gus’ girlfriend, exposing his romantic side and creating jealousy with Shawn. Additional guests include Katy Mixon, Garcelle Beauvais, Jeffrey Tambor, WWE’s Big Show, as well as the return of Cybill Shepherd and Kristy Swanson.
USA Network says the Psych Slumber Party on Feb. 15 will be a viewer’s choice marathon enhanced into a social, real-time party in which fans share the screen with the cast while watching at home. Psych stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Maggie Lawson and Tim Omundson will act out custom Slumber Party skits onscreen, while self-professed PSYCH-Os can get in on the action through an on-air Twitter ticker, video Touts, second screen tivia and prize giveaways and GetGlue exclusive stickers. Fans will be able to track all the Psych Slumber Party activity via an online HQ called PSYCHville at PSYCH.usanetwork.com.
