USA Renews Psych for Third Season

Fans of USA's procedural mystery series Psych have a reason to be, well, psyched this morning.

The cabler has ordered a third season of the dramedy, which stars James Roday, Dule Hill, Corbin Bernsen, and Maggie Lawson.

"We are thrilled to bring Psych back for a third season," said USA Network's Jeff Wachtel. "The series has been a critical and ratings sensation since it premiered last summer and continues to gain new viewers and grow its fan base."

USA has ordered 16 new episodes for the third season of Psych, which it plans to roll out in Summer 2008. I guess it didn't take a psychic, fake or otherwise, to predict that announcement.
