The Psych TV series filmed in Vancouver and area throughout its 8 seasons, which aired from 2006 to 2014. Back at the beginning of March, @lemon_buzz revealed that a Psych movie would be filming in Vancouver starting in May.
Psych Movie Cast & Story
According to USA Network, the 2 hour Psych movie special will see the return of Shawn Spencer (James Roday), Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill), Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson). The script was written by Psych creator Steve Franks alongside James Roday. Set 3 years after the series finale, the group reunites during the holidays after a bad guy starts to target one of their own.
This was the announcement posted by the show’s official Twitter account on May 8th:
This December brings a true holiday miracle.

In an unfortunate turn of events, Timothy Omundson took to Twitter last week to reveal that he had suffered a “wee touch of a stroke”:
My Dear tweet-erers,
As you may have heard, I have had a wee touch of a stroke. Thanks for all the ♥️ and well wishes.

We haven’t seen any information to confirm whether this would have any impact on the Psych movie. As of the latest information available, production is set to begin today and continue in Vancouver and area until June 17th. It’s rumoured that some additional filming will be done in San Francisco, where Shawn, Gus and Juliet wound up after the series finale.
If you can’t wait until December, you can catch a couple of the cast in new projects. Maggie Lawson was in Vancouver a bit early for a lead role in Hallmark’s My Favorite Wedding which is set to premiere in June. Dulé Hill recently joined the cast of Suits Season 7 which is filming in Toronto until November and premieres July 12th on USA Network.
