“I know, you know, that I’m not telling the truth.” Well, this time we are. Leading up to the March 26 series finale, the Paley Center in New York will salute eight seasons ofPsych when stars James Roday and Dulé Hill join us to celebrate the long-running USA Network show. The evening with everyone’s favorite faux psychic and his best friend will feature a sneak peek of the March 19 episode, “Nightmare on State Street,” which Roday directed. From the introduction of the series’ emblematic pineapple in the first episode through eight seasons, the show’s stars and writers have embraced the outrageous and always silly world of Shawn and Gus. Along the way Psych has paid tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, staged adoring homages to the films Clue and The Shiningand the TV series Twin Peaks, and spawned the catchphrases “suck it,” “wait for it,” and “what???” David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle proclaims Psych as “one of the wittiest shows on TV.” The series currently boasts more than three million fans on social media. The penultimate episode will be screened, as well as a clip from the finale.
