President of USA Network, Chris McCumber, made the announcement to reporters during a Q and A session, stating:

"Psych has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy,"The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series' incredible run. And while the series will wrap in March somehow I don't believe we've heard the last of Shawn and Gus."

President and Chief Content Officer, NBCU Cable Entertainment, Jeff Wachtel, also chimed in, adding:

"PSYCH is one of those rare projects that broke into the cultural mainstream. Its wild energy, fearless fun and engaging characters delivered an unrivaled series that will continue to be loved by fans for as long as there are ways to watch TV."

The finale episode titled, "The Breakup" will air on March 26 on USA.
