The N-heterocyclic ligand in the title compound, [Cu(NCS)(C15H13N5S2)]n, coordinates to the CuI atom through its pyridine N-donor site, and adjacent metal atoms are bridged by the thio­cyanate ion, forming a helical chain along the b axis. The geometry of the metal atom is tetra­hedral owing to a somewhat long intra­molecular Cu—S inter­action of 2.5621 (9) Å.
