Psych out – USA Network cancels series

USA Network has said the current eighth season of detective comedy drama Psych will be the last.

The US cable network made the cancellation official yesterday and said the final episode will be followed by a live one-hour Q&A with the cast and show creator, Steve Franks.

Chris McCumber, president of USA Network said: “The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run. And while the series will wrap in March somehow I don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus.”

The show is produced by NBCU Cable Entertainment.
