“Dirk Gently” Series Is Officially Dead

Despite fan support for it, “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” will not be getting a third season with the show’s producers unable to find the series a new home.

Executive producer Arvind Ethan David David tweeted out the news to the fan base, thanking them for their support and efforts. The series was not renewed by BBC America after wrapping Season 2 a few months back and sadly attempts made since to revive it have fallen apart.

The serialized comedic thriller series was adapted from the popular novels by Douglas Adams and followed the bizarre adventures of eccentric ‘holistic’ detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood) as the two wound their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season.
