The long-awaited "Psych" musical has finally gotten an air date. At the San Diego Comic-Con, it's revealed that the two-hour special would hit the small screen Sunday, December 15 with guest appearances by musical vets Anthony Rapp and Barry Bostwick.
A first look at the said episode has also landed online via The Hollywood Reporter. It sees James Roday's Shawn and Dule Hill's Gus singing and dancing about solving cases under the Santa Barbara sky, joined by other members of the Santa Barbara Police Department.
In "Psych: The Musical", Shawn and Gus track down escaped playwright mad man named Z (Rapp), who six years earlier was deemed criminally insane after locking a critic in a back room of the theater that he burned to the ground. Shawn and Gus are forced to consult with the one person Z confided in while in the institution, a dangerous villain from Shawn's past.
Back to the Comic-Con panel, USA announced the winner of first ever "Psych" fan-vote contest to choose a storyline to feature in a season eight episode.
