After teasing fans of USA Network show “Psych” for several years with the idea of a musical episode, series creator Steve Franks finally confirmed it was happening — with a twist.

“We have partially written the musical episode … as a two-hour musical movie,” said creator Steve Franks during the “Psych” panel at Comic-Con.

Also announced for “Psych” at the panel was a guest appearance of Jeffrey Tambor, who will appear on the show as the stepfather of Julia (played by Maggie Lawson).

As the first TV panel of the day in Ballroom 20, the fans of the USA Network packed the 2,000-plus-seat theater to maximum capacity. “Psych” star Tim Omundson led the Q&A panel.

USA programming chief Jeff Wachtel, the show’s “benevolent god,” hinted at a season eight, but would not confirm.
