Psych‘s upcoming revival movie wont be the last, if creator Steve Franks gets his way.
Speaking to EW, the Franks admits he left the original series finale of the cancelled USA Network drama open-ended, in the hope of making six revival movies:
“[In the same] way that the Fast and the Furious movies used to be about street-racing and they’ve pivoted into heist movies and all that stuff, I kind of want the [Psych] movies to pivot into action-comedy where you can do something that feels like a feature movie and not just two episodes of Psych put together,” says Franks, “because as fun as it is to watch this show, it’s nothing compared to how fun it is to write this show and to make this movie.”
Franks is already banking on making at least a second movie, if only so there can be a full reunion, which this one sadly isn’t. [..]
“There’s some great, great stuff that took place in Santa Barbara, and movie two is certainly going to utilize some of those bits. The entire scenes, word-for-word, will be in the second movie,” says Franks, who is confident that Omundson will be back in shape when the time comes. “The idea is that the second one would be the one that we would do to fully have everybody back together in the same room at the same time.”
Would you watch SIX Psych revival movies, or do you hope the cancellation reaper catches them first? Stay tuned…
