Psych is and will probably always be one of the best original programs to come out of the USA Network. With Timothy Omundson’s stroke prior to the filming of the first Psych movie, there was concern that we might have seen the last of Police Chief Carlton Lassiter, but they managed to build his still recovering status into the plot of the film. Hell, it’s pretty much the plot of the thing!
We won’t be able to tell you if Psych 2, Lassie Come Home is as great as we hope it will be until it drops on the Peacock Network July 15th. We just know that we are happy to see James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson, Corbin Bernsen, and Tim Omundson together again on the screen.
“Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter (Timothy Omundson, This Is Us, American Housewife) 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 (James Roday, A Million Little Things, Psych) and Gus (Dulé Hill, Suits, Psych) 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.
