The idea of getting another Psych: The Movie is certainly at the top of our personal wishlist (we are huge fans of the show), and it seems like everyone else wants the same thing!
So, what’s the holdup? It’s a little thing known as the entertainment business. Because Psych isn’t a full-time job for any of the cast members, they have to get other work elsewhere. Right now, James Roday has a major role over on ABC’s A Million Little Things, while Dule Hill is a regular over on Suits and Maggie Lawson recently booked a recurring gig over on Lethal Weapon. While getting everyone back together for more hijinks is a tall order, we do think that there is a universal desire to make it happen — and we absolutely think that it will happen.

Speaking to reporters at TCA today while promoting his new series (via TVLine), Roday basically echoed as much:
“We’ll figure out a way to do it … All the pieces are still there, and everyone wants to do it. We’ve got to get [co-star] Tim Omundson back to his Psych-Os.”
Omundson’s work as Lassiter in the first movie was limited due to his recovery from a stroke. Yet, he still was a part of one of the movie’s most-emotional scenes and it’s going to be a thrill to see more Lassie the next go-around.
The biggest thing that everyone probably needs right now is patience, just because scheduling is going to make things tough. Yet, if it turns out that everyone has even just a month or so next summer, there are ways to make it work. There is actually a ton of flux when it comes to all of the other actor gigs that we’ve mentioned here — A Million Little Pieces is a new series, Lawson’s role is only currently a recurring one, and nobody knows yet if there’s going to be a ninth season of Suits.
