After three years, Psych-Os is getting a sequel to the iconic television series Psych, that will hopefully solve the climactic moment of an ending. But, since three years is a long time, you will be forgiven if you do not remember exactly what happened in the final episode. That's why I'm here to remind you what happened at the end of the series Psych and to prepare you for the resurgence of the film, which will premiere on December 7th.
After 8 seasons and more than 100 episodes, Psych issued its final, entitled "The Break-Up", in March 2014. In it, contrary to the title of the episode, no one broke and, in any case, the bonds were consolidated even more firmly among many of the main characters. In the episode, Shawn left his home in San Francisco (where Juliet had accepted a new job) after sending DVD messages to his friends and father. Once in San Francisco, he found Juliet and declared his intention to really commit to living with her. Then Gus found them both since he followed Shawn. (A video farewell message will never be enough for him.) So, Shawn proposed to Juliet and she said yes … only that a thief snatched the engagement ring from Shawn's grandmother. Then, the three got into a car to chase the thief, and that's where the show ended forever, with one last unsolved mystery.
In an interview with TV Guide before the end, Steve Franks, who created Psych said: "This is not the end of it all, these guys are still dating and having these adventures on the other side, it's just not being broadcast on television right now, "he said. "For me, it was always that – it was about continuing, I knew that at the last moment they are running in another case".
But, years later, now is the time for the story to continue. Do not expect him to choose However, Chris Henze, who helped produce Psych: The Movie tells Bustle in an interview with New York Comic Con that the film takes three more years to arrive. later. It's the same amount of time that happened in real life after the show ended.
"When we first sat down and started talking about what to do with the movie, it was like," Well, maybe we'll pick it up right where we left off. "The next day or whatever" & # 39; "says Henze. "But it seemed like it was a lot more fun to have," What if we picked up three years later, so we can have fun with those stories? We can fill those gaps for people. "
It is no coincidence that the end of the series has been written so openly. Franks said during the NYCC panel for the film that he deliberately left the conclusion of the series open. "That was my first trick," he said. "When I finished, I wanted to make sure there was no closure so that the network could not say:" Well, that show is already done. "There are always more things at stake, and Shawn has not yet replaced the ring. "
While the fact that Shawn has not replaced the ring three years later is a little problematic, perhaps it does in one of several sequels that Franks has in mind. In a different interview with Entertainment Weekly he said that when the series ended he had always intended it to come back with six follow-up movies.
"[In the same] way in which The films Fast and the Furious used to be about street racing and have become movies about thefts and all that, like I want the [ Psych ] movies to pivot in the action comedy in which you can do something that feels like a movie and not just two episodes of Psych together, "he said." As funny as it is, look at this show, not It's nothing compared to how much fun it is to write this show and make this movie. "
While executives of the American network have not officially confirmed a sequel to the new Psych movie (let alone five), that does not stop Franks from sharing what would include in a possible sequel to Psych: The Movie . In that same interview with Entertainment Weekly Franks said that due to significant rewrites / reps due to the stroke of Timothy Omundson (who plays Detective Lassiter), some scenes shot for the first movie will now be reused. "In Santa Barbara there are great and great things, and film two is certainly going to use some of those parts," he said. "The full scenes, word by word, will be in the second movie."
No matter how many sequels the program actually ends, it's great that Franks has always had a plan in mind, from the day he chose to leave the series in a moment of suspense, to how he plans to fill six potential movies. Just do not expect the film to have a satisfactory conclusion if Franks is trying to make way for movies two and six. Fans are probably in another cliffhanger stolen in the ring at the last minute.
