We finally know when Psych 2: Lassie Come Home will debut. NBCUniversal recently unveiled what original programming will be available when its Peacock streaming services launches publically on July 15. Among those titles listed was the highly-anticipated sequel to 2017's Psych: The Movie. Shawn and Gus will indeed be back together again this summer. But it does mean signing up for a new streaming service.
Steve Franks (Big Daddy) wrote the movie alongside James Roday and Andy Berman. Franks also directs. Roday and Dule Hill are returning as Shawn and Gus, respectively, with Timothy Omundson playing Police Chief Carlton Lassiter and Kurt Fuller as Dr. Strode. Peacock also released a new photo from the movie, which features Shawn and Gus sporting some glamorous fur coats. Steve Franks, Hill, James Roday, and Chris Henze serve as executive producers. Taking to Twitter, Hill hyped up the release saying the following.
"Sooooo close that you can taste it!! ....and it tastes just like pineapples. See you soon Psych-Os! Catch #Psych 2: Lassie Come Home streaming July 15 on Peacock."
Psych 2: Lassie Come Home centers on Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter is ambushed on the job and left for dead. He then begins to see impossible happenings around his recovery clinic. Shawn and Gus return to Lassie's side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, professional and perhaps even the supernatural. Separated from their new lives in San Francisco, the two find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds as they secretly untangle a twisted case without the help of the police, their loved ones, or the quality sourdough bakeries of the Bay Area. What they uncover will change the course of their relationships forever.
Peacock will also feature new shows such as Brave New World, The Capture, Intellience, In Deep With Ryan Lochte, Lost Speedways, Curious George, Cleopatra in Space and Where's Waldo? at launch. Peacock will have a free, ad-supported version, but these original shows will be available for Peacock Premium members. The service will cost $5 per month with ads, or $10 per month without. NBCUniversal is competing with the likes of Netflix, Disney+ and, more recently, HBO Max, in the streaming game. The service is available for Comcast's Xfinity X1 and Flex customers already following its soft launch in April.
Psych ran for eight seasons from 2006 to 2014, airing 120 episodes. The series continued with 2017's Psych: The Movie, which proved to be a big enough success that it paved the way for this year's sequel. Back in April, series creator Steve Franks on Twitter said they intended to make at least four more movies. So this likely isn't the last of it. We should be expecting a new trailer soon with the premiere date just a couple of months away.
