Further, the movie will now premiere on NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock sometime in 2020, though it was originally scheduled to premiere on the USA Network this holiday season.

According to the film's synopsis,

Santa Barbara Police Chief Carlton Lassiter is ambushed on the job and left for dead. In a vintage Psych-style Hitchcockian nod, he begins to see impossible happenings around his recovery clinic. Shawn and Gus return to Lassie’s side in Santa Barbara and are forced to navigate the personal, the professional, and possibly the supernatural. Separated from their new lives in San Francisco, our heroes find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds as they secretly untangle a twisted case without the benefit of the police, their loved ones, or the quality sourdough bakeries of the Bay Area. What they uncover will change the course of their relationships forever.

Psych premiered on USA in 2006, running for eight seasons before its eventual end in 2014. A revival television film, co-written and produced by James Roday and starring the series' main cast, premiered in 2017 showing the continuing adventures of the characters embroiled in new mysteries.

The series followed the adventures of Shawn Spencer, a ne'er-do-well who uses his abilities to observe small details and powers of deduction to pose as a psychic consulting private detective for the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Psych 2: Lassie Comes Home stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson and Corbin Bernsen. It is scheduled to premiere on NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock sometime in 2020.
