Dule Hill Previews Psych Season 7, Romance for Gus

at . Comments

It is finally upon us.

The Psych Season 7 premiere airs tonight on USA and, in anticipation of this long-anticipated event, star Dule Hill and creator Steve Franks jumped on a conference call with reports last week to preview new episodes and new romances.

Gus and Shawn Pic

With Gus entertaining the advances of two women this spring - played by Parminda Nagra and Garcelle Beauvais - Hill joked that his character is "the perfect boyfriend," adding:

"He’s had a lot of time to think about it, a lot of time to do different charts and do different research about what qualities women look for in a boyfriend and made sure that he has is list and he’s checked it twice. So he’s ready to take the plunge."

And how might that plunge-taking affect Gus' relationship with Shawn?

"When you change any dynamic in a relationship there’s going to be some kind of re-shifting. You know, you can’t throw a stone into a pond without there being some ripples," he said. "So I think you’ll see that happen with Shawn and Gus but in the end I think it’ll all work out because, I mean, Shawn and Gus can’t live without each other."

Franks, meanwhile, teased a "giant secret" that will affect Shawn and Juliet, though was quick to add Psych is a "joyous, happy" series.

"Nothing too awful ever happens to anyone."

Among other developments viewers can look forward to on Season 7:

  • An episode inspired by Clue.
  • A "found footage" episode directed by James Roday.
  • And, yes, that special two-hour musical episode whose air date is yet to be announced.
