The guy living at 221B Baker Street may get all of the accolades, but he’s not the only English detective on TV. BBC America has Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and Deadline is reporting that the network has just ordered a 10-episode second season of the comedic mystery show. Dirk Gently’s first season finale won’t air until December, but the Deadline story says that the second season will follow a new “seemingly insane mystery” with more “wild and sometimes dangerous characters,” so it sounds like the new season will be about new wacky adventures, instead of a continuation of the current wacky adventures.
The Dirk Gently TV series comes from executive producer Max Landis, and it stars Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood. The series is also based on the original novels by Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy author Douglas Adams.
