Dirk Gently has solved his last case.
reports that Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency has been canceled by BBC America, and will not see a third season. The series, based on the novel of the same name by A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams, was headlined by Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett, and was created by Max Landis. Well-liked by critics (including those at Paste), Dirk Gently still received praise from BBC America despite the cancellation:
We are beyond proud of this brilliant original series and so appreciative of the outstanding team behind it including Max Landis, Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, and many many others. It was a privilege to work with this talented and passionate group of writers, producers and actors on these two seasons of Dirk. Thanks also to the passionate fans who embraced this fantastically novel world.
The series had just finished its second season. Dirk Gently fans will likely hope for a third season pickup from Netflix (or perhaps somebody else), given that Netflix had been handling the international release for the series.
