Skipping its traditional summer slot in favor of a fall premiere in 2011, the gap between Seasons 5 and 6 of “Psych” mark the longest since the show debuted in 2006.
But the wait comes to an end on Wednesday, Oct. 12, when the network confirms Season 6 will kick off in its 10:00 p.m. ET timeslot.
In addition to the previously mentioned “Indiana Jones” spoof, super heroes episode and introduction of William Shatner as Juliet’s (Maggie Lawson) father, a release from USA also makes special note of an upcoming vampire episode (co-written and directed by star James Roday), featuring vampire film icons Kristy Swanson (the original “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and Corey Feldman (“Lost Boys).
Season 6 will also explore Shawn and Juliet’s evolving relationship, how their coupling affects Gus (Dul� Hill) and that whole matter of Shawn not technically being a “real” psychic.
Per Zap2it’s recent interview with Roday, the second half of the season will also include a “Clue” homage, which he hopes will include some of the film’s surviving cast.
