In real life, James Roday and Maggie Lawson, who portrayed Shawn and Juliet, respectively, were in a relationship. They started dating in 2007. Their romance, however, ended in 2014, the same year that Psych ended.
James Roday has also spoken about how difficult it was to play the part of a happy-go-lucky detective when he was actually dealing with his breakup from his girlfriend. He said: "It's not an easy thing to do. It's not like I was able to run down the street and have a beer - which is what I wanted to do when I heard the news. So I had to pretend well enough to keep everyone around me off guard."
Meanwhile, Maggie Lawson has also spoken about how hard it was for her to deal with the end of her own personal happiness. She said: "I didn't sleep for three days after we finished shooting the last episode of Psych. I just sat there, staring at my phone, waiting for some kind of text or call that never came. When it finally did hit me that it was over, I remember feeling completely numb."
However, they both agreed that despite all the heartache, they would do it all again in the future if given the chance.
Juliet eventually admitted her affections for Shawn in the final episode of the third season. They start dating in season five, but they break up briefly in season seven's "Deez Nups" after Juliet discovers Shawn is not a clairvoyant. However, they get back together at the end of the season and are still dating at the beginning of season eight.
Shawn and Juliet marry in the series finale, with most of the main characters present. After the wedding, everyone goes to Tony's house where they can have dinner and watch fireworks with his family.
They divorce in the middle of season nine with Shawn moving out and taking some time off from work while Juliet starts writing songs again. They decide to try and work things out and move back in together. However, when Shawn tries to kiss Juliet good night she tells him she has changed her mind and that they should go their separate ways once more.
Shawn ends up going on a date with Linda Moon (former actress who plays Dr. Daniella Wexler) and realizes he still loves Juliet. He goes to see her with this new information but finds out she has already married someone else. Heartbroken, Shawn decides to leave town again to clear his head.
They ultimately start dating in episode five. They are still not together at the conclusion of the episode, but they reach an agreement, and Shawn says he will wait however long it takes.
Shawn has yet to break his promise and commit to a time frame, but Juliet has been very patient about it. She even wrote a song about it called "I Will Wait."
They have been dating for almost three years now, and some fans speculate that they may get married soon. However, this information is just a guess on their part.
Shawn has never talked about his relationship with Juliet on camera, so we don't know how much she means to him or if he cares about her opinion on any matter. But we do know that he wants what's best for her and would never put her through anything that could hurt her. He also seems to be completely smitten by her beauty and talent as a musician.
So, based on all this evidence, it can be concluded that Shawn and Juliet will one day get married.
Juliet and Shawn had an unspoken, though occasionally expressed, romance for five seasons. Shawn clearly had love for Juliet, but she had been sending contradictory signals throughout the performance.
They don't actually marry or anything, but they do get engaged during a trip to London when Shawn proposes to Juliet on The Ring Bearer ceremony show. She says yes, and they go back home to Texas where they get married before a small group of friends and family members at the end of the episode.
Shawn's father, who was not invited to the wedding, walks out on them during their wedding ceremony. This is one of several signs that suggest that Jack Spencer does not approve of Shawn dating his daughter's friend.
However, despite this apparent rift between them, Shawn's father ends up being one of the best men at their wedding. And later on in the series, we learn that he and Juliet move to Arizona to be closer to Shawn and his family.
Shawn and Jack have never gotten along very well, so it's possible that this incident caused them to permanently break down and never talk again.
Even though they didn't last long together, we can still see evidence of their relationship through Shawn's actions.
After much soul-searching, dog-napping, and singing with a pony dressed in pajamas for some reason, Psych: The Movie concluded with the scene that Psych fans have been waiting for for years: Juliet O'Hara (Maggie Lawson) and Shawn Spencer (James Roday) have finally married! It turns out that being a psychic detective is not all champagne and caviar. In fact, it's quite the opposite. There are times when you must put your personal feelings aside and do what needs to be done, even if it means saying goodbye to your heartache forever.
Psycho-Phobia centers on psychologist Dr. Richard Kimble who is hired by a wealthy Texas rancher to find out why his son has become obsessed with guns. What Dr. Kimble discovers instead is that their family business is not as perfect as they seemed and that there are many secrets behind the closed doors of the Rimrock Ranch.
As he begins to investigate the mystery, Dr. Kimble realizes that someone is trying to kill him and only he can save himself. But will he be able to overcome his psycho-phobic disorder in time to save himself?
Psycho-Phobia was released in U.S. theaters in June 2004. The film received mostly negative reviews from critics, but it did well at the box office, making more than $50 million worldwide.
Shawn and Juliet had an unorthodox, but emotional, wedding after catching the bad guys in the first Psych film, and they very much strolled off into the sunset. The emphasis is as follows: Shawn and Juliet are completely fine right now. So there's no need to be concerned. They also got married on a Sunday, which means that this event occurred before the start of Season 1.
However, due to circumstances beyond Shawn's control, he ends up in prison at the beginning of the episode. During his incarceration, we learn that Shawn and Juliet were going to get married, but then something happened and she left him. When Shawn gets out of jail, he goes looking for her, but she's already found someone else. This other person is revealed to be the main villain of the movie, who just so happens to be Juliet's father. At the end of the movie, they catch the bad guy and Juliet decides to give Shawn another chance even though he's still in prison. Using this as justification, she goes ahead with their wedding ceremony while he's inside. After getting released, Shawn finds Juliet waiting for him with a marriage license, and they walk away into the sunset... only this time, they're not alone.
This scene was added to the show by series creator Matt Groening himself. He did this because he wanted to give his fans a happy ending even though Shawn and Juliet didn't end up together.
