BBC America has renewed “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” for a 10-episode second season, as reported Monday by Deadline. “Outlandishly different, ‘Dirk Gently’ has hit a sweet spot with BBCA fans,” Sarah Barnett, President of BBC America, said of the renewal. “With Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett’s chemistry as oddball detective/sidekick duo, and our creators promising ever greater genius-weird cosmic mystery in the next case, we’re happy to announce more of this truly original and entertaining show.”
“Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” is based on the novels by “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” author Douglas Adams (and subsequent IDW Publishing comics miniseries). It follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood) as they work their way through one big, seemingly insane, mystery.
Max Landis, who previously wrote the 2012 film “Chronicle” and the “Superman: American Alien” miniseries for DC comics, serves as a writer and executive producer. Robert C. Cooper, who worked as an executive producer on “Stargate: SG1” and “Stargate: Atlantis,” serves as showrunner and executive producer; Arvind Ethan David, who has written some of IDW’s “Dirk Gently” comic books, also serves as an executive producer.
The season 1 finale of “Dirk Gently” airs on December 10. The second season is scheduled to air at some point in 2017.
