There have been many episodes of “Psych” over the years that we have been excited about, but we don’t quite think any has come with the sort of anticipation as the upcoming musical. It will be crazy, it will be funny … and there will be plenty of singing. We really can’t wait to see what unfolds here, especially now that we have a few more details about what the nature of this mystery is actually going to be.
So with that in mind here, let’s start things off by sharing the full synopsis that comes your way courtesy of USA Network:
“In the special, Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) dive into a world that’s equal parts mystery and melody. The duo must track down playwright and mad man, Z (guest star Anthony Rapp, “Rent”), who six years earlier was deemed criminally insane after trapping a critic in the theater and burning it to the ground. With little to go on, they are forced to consult with the one person Z confided in while institutionalized — a dangerous and familiar villain from Shawn’s past. Their informant uses songs and cryptic clues to reveal Z’s next steps.”
Also, take a look at the official song list for the December 15 special below, which is pretty darn exciting. However, you are going to be pretty shocked to see that for whatever reason, Corbin Bernsen is apparently not going to be belting out any tunes. Maybe he doesn’t sing? It’s also probably a good idea to not really read too much into any of the song titles … some of them are probably misleading.
