Welcome news for fans of Psych is a new trailer (below) for the second movie sequel in what is expected to be a series of movies we first discussed here at borg a whole strange month ago.  The movie has the quite apt and humorous title, Psych 2: Lassie Come Home, and it’s expected to arrive with the general release of the free Peacock streaming service app coming your way on or shortly after July 15 (Peacock will also have a pay “premium content” version).  The movie, the second of six sequels that creator/showrunner Steve Franks said he plans to make, will focus on Timothy Omundson′s character Lassiter aka Lassie.  Omundson suffered a stroke in 2017 (watch a great interview with him below) and the story will in part mirror his real-life comeback.

Joel McHale will appear in the movie, and Jimmi Simpson is expected to be back as Mary, returned from the grave in one form or another, and Kurt Fuller′s coroner Woody appears in the trailer.  Psych 2: Lassie Come Home is the first new movie to premiere on NBC’s Peacock streaming service.

They’ll join series regulars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson, and Corbin Bernsen.

While you’re waiting for Psych 2, read Psych’s Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified (reviewed here) and check out the first movie, Psych: The Movie online here, on NBC.com, on the USA Network app, and it’s free with ads on IMDb TV.  USA Network initially was going to be running the movie, but later shifted the program to Peacock.  Here’s its trailer for the movie:
