USA Renews ‘Psych' for Seventh Season


USA Network has picked up its detective series Psych for a seventh season of 16 episodes.

The pickup of the seventh season was announced to fans on social media first.

Psych stars James Roday and Dulé Hill announced the pickup via the show's Facebook page and Twitter feed. Throughout Tuesday, the network shared pieces of a "pineapple puzzle" that, when put together, revealed a video message from the two stars, announcing the pickup.

"We are always trying to find ways to reward our Psych brand ambassadors for their loyalty and passion and social media plays a critical role in how we connect with the people who matter most -- the fans," said USA co-presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel. "It was exciting to deliver this historical news to them first and before traditional media."

Psych returns Feb. 29 to finish its sixth season.
