Two months before its seventh season begins airing, 'Psych' fans are happy today as the USA Network has picked up the series eighth season already.
News of the comedy eighth season, which stars Dule Hillhas and James Roday, was confirmed by USA Network senior vice president - research Ted Linhard on Twitter.
A formal announcement is expected to come sometime today, according to a USA representative. The Steve Franks' series is scheduled to return on February 27.
It is unknown at this time if the early renewal signals that the eighth season will be the series last. The show will go past the 100-episode mark this season and is USA's longest-running series. One of the highlights of this season will be a two-hour long musical episode, which revolves around a wedding.
'Psych' received a renewal for the seventh season in January, with 16 episodes ordered. No episode count has been announced for the eighth season, at this time.
The show focuses on Roday as Shawn Spencer, a crime consultant who works with the Santa Barbara Police Department. His "heightened observation skills" convince people that he has psychic abilities. Hill plays his best friend Burton "Gus" Guster, while Corbin Bernsen is Shawn's father, Henry.
