BBC AMERICA released today the first look trailer, photos and new season two details for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, starring Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood. Season two premieres Saturday, October 14, 9/8c on BBC AMERICA. Season one is available to binge on Hulu.


Every season is a dizzying, smart, dangerous, unexpected and (for us, not the people involved) fun adventure that explores a different genre. Season one was about time travel with body-swapping, and this season involves an injection of fantasy. The vast dangers lurking in the fantasy realm navigate a path to Earth, becoming a threat in reality, and it's up to Dirk (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.

From creator Max Landis and showrunner Robert Cooper, the series is adapted from the popular novels by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who).


Samuel Barnett (Dirk), Elijah Wood (Todd), Jade Eshete (Farah), Hannah Marks (Amanda), Mpho Koaho (Ken), Fiona Dourif (Bart), Dustin Milligan (Friedkin), Michael Eklund (Martin - Rowdy 3), Osric Chau (Vogel - Rowdy 3), Viv Leacock (Gripps - Rowdy 3), and Zak Santiago (Cross - Rowdy 3) are all set to return.

John Hannah (The Mage), Amanda Walsh (Suzie Boreton), Tyler Labine (Sherlock Hobbs), Izzie Steele (Deputy Tina Tevetino), Aleks Paunovic (Wygar Oak), and Alan Tudyk (Mr. Priest) join the cast for season two.


Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a co-production of AMC Studios, IDEATE MEDIA and IDW Entertainment, with Circle of Confusion producing for BBC AMERICA. Max Landis created and executive produces the series with Robert Cooper serving as executive producer and showrunner. Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah are executive producing for IDEATE MEDIA, Ted Adams and David Ozer for IDW and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion. The ten-part season two premieres on BBC AMERICA in the U.S. and will stream globally on Netflix in countries outside the U.S.

In July, DGHDA cast and creators returned to San Diego Comic-Con for a Hall H panel with fans. Watch the full panel here. Watch the First Look S2 Scene here.
