Having recently concluded its second season a few days ago, BBC America has announced that it has decided to cancel Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. The series starred Samuel Barnett and Elijah as a pair of investigators solving peculiar and strange mysteries. It was based on Douglas Adams’ work of the same name, with the series developed by Max Landis.
BBC America put out a statement to the fans, which reads:
Dear Dirk Gently fans,
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency brought together an incredible group of talented, creative people to make something truly original that celebrates how weird and wonderful the universe can be. We are so proud to work with the writers, producers and actors who created this brilliant world. We’ve seen your passionate social campaigns for another season of Dirk Gently and we regret to say that Season 2 will be the last season on BBC America.
We have been so inspired by your rowdy imagination, your wild passion and whip-smart humor. We’ve tweeted with you every episode, watched you make incredible fan art and most importantly, build great friendships. Dirk Gently fans aren’t just great fans, they’re great friends, too. You’ll continue to find connections, overcome great obstacles, make amends, help others, and create your own family of weirdos, chosen or not.
Thank you, Dirk Gently fans, for everything.
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” -Douglas Adams.
