Psych is an American detective comedy-drama television series which spoofs procedural dramas that were extremely popular in the 2000s. It was created by Steve Franks and broadcast on USA Network. The series aired new episodes in the U.S. on Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT, 9PM CST. Psych debuted on Friday, July 7, 2006, immediately following the fifth season premiere of Monk, and continued to be paired with the series until Monk's conclusion on December 4, 2009. It was the highest-rated U.S. basic cable television premiere of 2006. Season Six ended on April 11, 2012. It was USA Network's longest-running original series on air at the time it ended. On January 10, 2012, USA renewed the series for Season Seven, to include 16 episodes. On December 19, 2012, a renewal for Season Eight was announced. Psych began its eighth and final season on January 8, 2014, concluding on March 26 with the final episode of the entire series and the Psych After Pshow.

The series stars James Roday Rodriguez as Shawn Spencer, a young crime consultant for the Santa Barbara Police Department whose "heightened observational skills" and impressive detective instincts allow him to convince people that he solves cases with psychic abilities. The program also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn's best friend and reluctant partner Burton "Gus" Guster, as well as Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's captious father, Henry Spencer. Timothy Omundson stars as detective Carlton Lassiter, who often clashes with Shawn, and Maggie Lawson stars as Juliet O'Hara, a junior detective who goes on to become Shawn's love interest. Kirsten Nelson stars as police chief Karen Vick. The supporting cast includes Liam James as Young Shawn, Carlos McCullers II as Young Gus, Sage Brocklebank as Buzz McNab, and Kurt Fuller as coroner Woodrow Strode.
