Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency renewed for Season 2 already

Dirk Gently is coming back for another season

British Douglas Adams fans who were perhaps worrying about the quality of BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency needn’t worry any longer: the series clearly isn’t bad, as it’s already been given a Season 2.

Dirk Gently, which stars Samuel Barnett as the titular character and Elijah Wood as a Gently’s not-in-the-books sidekick/assistant Todd, is yet to air in the UK, but it has been gathering some good reviews over the pond.

The Max Landis-developed series is based on Adams’ two-and-a-half novels – Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul and half of The Salmon Of Doubt – and sees Dirk and Todd finding themselves at the centre of a mysterious conspiracy while attempting to solve problems by investigating a number of apparently interconnected clues.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency hits Netflix UK on 11 December. Get all the latest science fiction news with every issue of SciFiNow.
