As Psych wraps up its seventh-season run, the veteran USA Network comedy is gearing up for season eight with a few familiar faces.

Cary Elwes, who has appeared on Psych three times, will reprise his role as Pierre Despereaux. When the Princess Bride vet comes back into the fray, he will go on what's described as a "stylistic journey" through the dark underground of the London crime syndicate.

Kristy Swanson, who has dropped by the show four times, will also return in season eight as Marlowe.

The news comes after USA's sister network, the recently rebranded Esquire, snagged rights to Psych. USA officially renewed Psych for an eighth season in December, two months before season seven debuted in late February.

Psych airs at 10 p.m. Wednesdays on USA Network.
