The end of Psych’s sixth season is upon us (only three episodes to go!), but what’s in store promises to be just as fun – if not more – than what fans have already been treated to this season, according to star Dulé Hill, who stopped by EW’s offices this week to chat.
The last stretch of fun kicks off tonight with an episode that features a guest spot from French Stewart (3rd Rock from the Sun) and cameo from Psych writer (and fan fave) Andy Berman. “What Andy Berman does is pure genius,” Hill says, adding in a strategically coy manner, “He plays…a lad from a different land.”
“Different” is something Psych certainly does well, and why shouldn’t it continue to do so? After six seasons, the show was renewed back in January and is set to begin filming its seventh in a few weeks. And Hill says that after fans check out the nail-biting cliffhanger at the end of the sixth season, they’ll be even more eager to see what’s in store for next season.
In the finale, airing April 11, Gus and Shawn re-open a thought-to-be-cold case after the body of a missing person resurfaces 20 years after her disappearance. But as the case unfolds, it turns out to be more than meets the eye. “There’s a very good cliffhanger that comes this season…a nice juicy one,” he says. (Spoiler-y hint: Someone’s life might be in major peril!)
But regardless of how that transpires, there is plenty in store for the next season. No. 1 on Hill’s wish list? A West Wing-themed episode that can serve as an on-screen reunion! “I doubt it would ever really be possible with everyone’s schedules, but I would love to see [that],” he confesses. “I don’t think it’s ever going to happen, but I would love to see that happen….it’d be a great time.” Seconded!
