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.

CONTEST: PSYCH-Os Vote for One of Three Possible Season 8 Episodes. Winner Announced at Comic-Con – Updated
Update: Filming of Psych season 8 in Vancouver extended to August 23rd. How could Psych-Os not vote for the “Food Truck” storyline in the season 8 episode contest for fans?

The USA network officially ordered two more episodes of Psych today for a total of ten in what is likely the final season – one greenlit by the network from five additional scripts and the other to be voted on by fans from three possible [...]
Psych crew made the entrance to Vancouver’s historic Commodore Ballroom look a little seedy for a quick establishing shot today. The Art Deco-style nightclub on Granville Street is temporarily renamed the Limelighter Lounge with missing letters on a hot pink sign. Psych is expected to film inside all day and into the evening. Here’s hoping Gus (Dule Hill) gets to bust some moves on the Commodore’s famous sprung dance floor, circa 1929. *************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Why did Psych turn half a block of Gastown into jolly old England yesterday? Crew dressed the Lamplighter Pub as The Bloody Bucket Public House, placed a red telephone box on the cobble stones, had black London cabs drive by during scenes and dotted the block with various Brit types as background. Look at how James Roday’s Shawn “Psychic” Spencer is dressed. Is he supposed to be some kind of cowboy? And Dule Hill’s Burton “Gus” Guster looks like someone who escaped Hogwarts from the Harry Potter movies. BFFs Shawn and Gus did meet up inside the pub for afternoon scenes and later filmed more scenes in Blood Alley behind the pub still dressed in costume. Psych’s very-tall creator Steve [...]

Psych started filming [ten] episodes for season eight of the USA Network show in Vancouver late last week. On Sunday, crew prepped the old Britannia Shipyard building in Steveston for filming yesterday, turning it into the Barclay Bay Fish Company. In the morning, they shot scenes to the east at Gilbert Beach Park on Dyke Road and then some exterior scenes of Psych’s crime-fighting quartet arriving at the Barclay Bay Fish Company crime scene: Shawn “psychic” Spencer (James Roday) and Burton “Gus” Guster (Dule Hill) in the Blueberry and Santa Barbara police detectives Carlton “Lassie” Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) and Juliet O’Hara (Maggie Lawson) in the police squad car. By the time I got there mid-afternoon, the crew was on LUNCH, either sprawled on [...]
