USA's Psych Set For A Panel At SDCC

While in previous years, USA has showcased a number of their popular original series at SDCC, it looks like the cable network is keeping it simple this year, with just one show set to be featured in a panel at the San Diego-set convention. There's good news for Psych fans set to attend Comic Con this year. The series, which will head into its seventh season this fall, will once again have a panel at SDCC.

It's a big year for Psych. Not only is the series looking at its seventh season, but with Season 7 comes the milestone 100th episode. According to USA's announcement, that episode will be among the topics of discussion at the panel this year. James Roday, Dule Hill, Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson and Kristen Nelson will be participating in the panel, as will series creator and executive producer Steve Franks, along with Eps Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak. Discussion of the upcoming guest stars and "plenty of surprises" were also mentioned. Given the cast and the nature of the series, which follows an especially observant Shawn and his old friend/sidekick Gus as they help the police department solve crimes, I expect this will be an especially fun panel.

USA seems to be toning down their SDCC presence this year, with just one series set to be featured. Last year, the USA panels included Psych, Covert Affairs and Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, and the previous year it was Burn Notice. Psych and White Collar. If the decision came down to Burn Notice and Psych, I could understand USA's choice to go with the latter. Burn Notice is in the midst of its sixth season, while Pysch is expected to return this fall, so Pysch fans are likely to be especially eager for whatever morsels of info on the new season will be delivered at the panel.
