And Dule Hill’s season 8 Harry Potter gown are among the costumes on sale. Psych will be missed here.

Psych returned to Leg in Boot Square in south False Creek on Tuesday to film more scenes of its Food Truck episode, after spending two days there last week. Shawn and Gus (James Roday and Dule Hill) are now proprietors of their own Mash & Grab food truck in a bid to solve the murder of the much-missed Macho Tachos food truck owner. For the first time in the filming of Psych, I saw Lassie’s beloved Marlowe (Kristy Swanson) on set. She seemed to be helping out at the Mash & Grab. Then Shawn’s Dad Henry (Corbin Bernsen) climbed on board too which made for one crowded food truck. Lassie (Timothy Omundson) was around as well but in his blue [...]
Rounding the seawall at south False Creek in Vancouver last Wednesday morning, I could hear high-pitched squealing from inside a ring of food trucks — Gangsta Wraps, In the Vegan-ing, Meat and Mrs. Jones, The Kaboom Box and Macho Tacos — at Leg in Boot Square. It made me laugh because this had to be Psych’s Food Truck episode, an episode I had not expected to see after it lost the season eight fan episode contest. Producers must love #DeliciousFlavor too. Synopsis: When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the [...]

Photos by Larry/@BastardSonVan. “Suuuuuuuckkk iiiittt” in song? Last month fans lined up for hours in San Diego to attend the World Premiere of Psych: The Musical (#PsychTheMusical) which was filmed mainly in Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre and will air this winter on the USA Network. Cast arrived in Oscar Mayer Weinermobiles and it just went Psych-O from there. A local fan Larry, who’d caught some scenes from the filming of the musical in Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, was one of the 3,000 lucky ones at Comic-Con to see the screening and the hijinks from creator/showrunner Steve Franks, producers Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak and cast James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson, Kirsten Nelson and Corbin Bernsen.

Psych creator/showrunner Steve Franks is in Vancouver to direct what is expected to be the season 8 finale (possibly series finale). From the photo he tweeted last night, it’s no longer a secret that Maggie Lawson has found time from her new sitcom to return to film scenes for this episode. Pity the Psych cast doesn’t get along (joke) ….. Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Omudson, Steve Franks, James Roday, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson and Dule Hill. Psych is filming its season finale out of order, like it has done in past seasons here. Shooting of at least two more episodes (including the James Roday-directed fan-picked episode Dream Therapy) should extend Psych filming in Vancouver to around August 23rd.

Psych creator/showrunner Steve Franks directed a big scene in front of the historic yellow condo complex Kensington Place in Vancouver’s West End today. Here he is talking with lead actor James Roday, aka Shawn Spencer, below. During filming, crew had two big scrims and five production assistants with umbrellas blocking views of the scene, even from the other side of Beach Avenue where fans stood. This isn’t Psych style but it’s completely understandable for a pivotal scene in what could be the series finale. Earlier, Steve Franks discussed the scenes with Dule Hill and James Roday, who are holding their scripts.
