Tv Season Info

In the third season, the perennially light-hearted fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) faces some challenges that are no laughing matter. His estranged psychiatrist mother (guest star Cybill Shepherd) returns to evaluate members of the SBPD, and her presence has an effect on Henry (Corbin Bernsen), who's still smitten. Shawn also reconnects with an old flame from high school (guest star Rachael Leigh Cook), but that doesn't mean his feelings for Juliet (Maggie Lawson) have waned. His biggest test, however, comes at the end of the season when he takes on his toughest case yet: catching the elusive serial killer Mr. Yang. Meanwhile, Gus (Dulé Hill) learns his family is keeping some pretty major secrets from one another during the show's second Christmas-themed episode; Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) turns to the guys when he becomes a murder suspect; and Vick (Kirsten Nelson) lands the permanent role of chief.

Critic Reviews for Psych: Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Any show that ends with a chase around the office and also involves a couples' only skate at an old roller derby rink is like heaven in a cute little box with fabulous people living inside.

It's flitty, funny, and steeped in pop-culture allusions, without ever getting too cute about it.

April 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Aside from a few sub-par episodes and the fact that Shawn's relationship with his mom left a lot to be desired, the most frustrating thing this season was the "will they or won't they" game between Shawn and Detective Juliet O'Hara.

All in all, I'm happy Psych is back and looking forward to more new episodes.

Psych is the most amiable and goofy of detective shows, thankfully.
