Dirk (Samuel Barnett) and Todd (Elijah Wood) are back for another season of case-solving and universal interconnected-ness, as BBC America released the first trailer for Season 2 of sci-fi/comedy series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Adapted from the popular novels from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams, the Sherlock Holmes-with-a-twist series chronicles the case adventures of “holistic detective” Dirk Gently with his reluctant and his constantly questioning assistant Todd as they use fate and an “interconnected universe” to solve strange and unique crimes.
Here’s your first look at Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Season 2:
“The vast dangers lurking in the fantasy realm navigate a path to Earth, becoming a threat in reality, and it’s up to Dirk (Samuel Barnett) and the gang to stop them in their tracks. But first – they need to find each other… Everything and everyone continues to be connected… from the sterile chambers of the government organization Blackwing, to the sleepy town of Bergsberg and the magical land of Wendimoor. After a few misfires, Dirk Gently steadily finds his footing on the new case to “find The Boy”, and with the help of his friends, makes the necessary connections to solve the mystery before it’s too late.”
Max Landis and showrunner Robert Cooper were initially responsible for bringing Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency to series.
