In an effort to engage young viewers, USA Network will preview the season premiere of “Psych,” “Extradition II: The Actual Extradition Part” at Northwestern on Nov. 9.

Actors James Roday and Dulé Hill, executive producer Steve Franks and some of the show’s writers will host a question-and-answer session at the event as well, according to a Wall Street Journal blog.

The show will also be screened at nine other universities prior to its Nov. 10 season premiere date. NU will be the last school on the tour. Schools the show will visit include the University of Florida, the University of Oregon and Boston University, among others.

Psych airs on USA Network Fridays at 9 p.m. The show stars Roday as Santa Barbara, Calif., police consultant Shawn Spencer, a crime-solver who is so observant that staff members believe he’s psychic. Hill plays Spencer’s sidekick, Gus.

The screenings will be open to students as well as local residents. The location is yet to be announced.
