Psych films a scene for the season 8 food truck episode "Shawn & Gus Truck Things Up" this past August
With the "Psych The Musical" episode less than 3 weeks away, felt it was time to drop a little bit of the backlog of Psych blog tidbits I've got left.
Today, a little short video of James Roday & Dule Hill as Shawn Spencer & Burton Guster, filming a scene for a season 8 episode of Psych where they investigate a murder at a food truck festival.
Its short, and really not much happens in it. But, its something to get you a little more excited about the upcoming Musical episode & of course, season 8, likely the final season, to come in early 2014.
Psych photos from the expected series finale - includes a notable guest star & some spoilers, big spoilers, but not the biggest spoiler...yet
THIS POST CONTAINS NOTABLE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR FILMING OF "PSYCH SEASON 8". Do not read or view the photos below if you don't want to see or read anything on season 8 prior to seeing it.
I caught up with Psych for more filming from their expected series finale.
This particular day, I was determined to go to the set because I knew a guest star that was going to be there. A very special, very Psych relevant guest star that they clearly wanted in the show at some point...
Ready Psych-o's? Here it comes.
BILLY ZANE will be in an episode of Psych... and not just as a pop culture reference this time.
I dont really know what his role is in the episode. I know there was scenes shot with Billy, Shawn, Gus & Henry either together, or in various combinations, on a trail inside a park in Burnaby.
Later, I found them at a house where Shawn, Gus, Lassie and guest stars Billy Zane & some Acadamy Award Winning Actress by the name of Mira Sorvino did scenes in a house.
I also saw tweets that said Deon Richmond was on set for this episode. Clearly Psych is pulling out all the running gags for their probable series finale.
One of the cooler moments I have had on a Psych set came at the end of the work day. Having gotten James, Dule, Maggie, Kirsten, Corbin & even Steve Franks in my "Psych's Guide To Crimefighting For The Totally Unqualified" (an entertaining read by the way) on previous encounters, I still needed Timothy. So I tweeted at him that I was waiting outside hoping to get my book signed....didn't think he'd even see it in the 1000s of tweets he gets daily. But sure enough, when he left at the end of the day, he walked over to my friend & I and instantly said without hesitation "so which 1 of you is Canadagraphs?" then he signed my book, completing the cast.
Something interesting that was found out during this shoot. Maybe you should sit down for this 1. Some of you fans might not take this news as well.
Gus is moving on up car-wise. In a shocker, the Blueberry is no more. Gus has a new job, and a new company car.
Like many prop cars that shows get, for insurance reasons, the blueberry was crushed. So sadly, no one will be taking it home as the ultimate Psych prop gift. The Blueberry was the 1st notable, Psych specific item I heard about being let go of by the show in their final weeks. The lease on several locations they used, including the office for Psych also happened in the final weeks. With so many iconic parts of the show now gone, does this mean the end for the series?
Even though the USA Network or NBC Universal hasnt said so yet, this show is done. I'm saying it if they wont. Feel free to come here & point & laugh if they bring it back, but when cast leave for other projects and they let go of their most notable locations & props, its done.
Several cast have moved on. Dule Hill has a Broadway role, Corbin Bernsen very publicly stated he wont be back, and of course James Roday said to me in my last encounter with him "since this is the end of the line..." when he was talking to me about all the autographs I got from him over the years and how he wouldn't see me again.
Is it possible for a return of Psych in some form? Maybe. But it will not be any time soon. It will not be another season. it will be a TV movie at most. It will be 3-5 years from now. They will have to wait till they A- Get the OK from NBC Universal/USA Network to do 1, tne B- Have all of the cast available. That isnt coming together in the next year for sure. If there is no TV movie in the next 5 years, then there will never be a return. For now, the show is ending after 8 glorious seasons.
To the cast - thanks for a great show & more or less always being great with myself & other fans at the sets.
To the crew - For the mostpart, I found you all to be really classy, respectful & helpful to myself & fans visiting the set, something that isnt always the case for all shows.
To the creators, directors & writers - You have earned my applause, a lot of applause.
To the fans. All great things must come to an end. But dont worry.... you still have several more months to get there....oh, and I still have a couple more nuggets to post from season 8 filming....so theres that too eventually.
In the mean time, take in some pics from 1 of the last Psych sets I ever encountered.
Almost Human buddy cop duo Karl Urban & Michael Ealy film scenes for the 1st season back in July, 2013
A few months ago, I caught the new J.J. Abrams & Joel Wyman sci-fi cop drama, Almost Human out filming scenes for their 1st season in an area known as "Olympic Village".
The scenes were between the cop partner duo of the human with a artificial leg Karl Urban (John Kennex) & the robot with the human emotions Michael Ealy (DRN - aka "Dorian"). In it, it appears Dorian was shot on duty before his partner walks up to him.
This was my 1st time catching them filming since the pilot episode. It was also my 1st time catching Michael Ealy on set. After seeing the preview video they released during Comic-Con for it, I am eager to see this show play out.
This was also my 1st time getting autographs from any of the cast on set, as I managed to get both Urban & Ealy on the set.
Below is some of the photos from this shoot.
Almost Human debuts in less than a week. November 17 & 18, 2013 on FOX. You can sneak previews on the FOX Website if you are in the U.S.
