BBC America has ordered a second series of the tv series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. It comes a few weeks before the finale of the show on the 10th December. 

Dirk Gently’s Hollistic Detective Agency is based on the novels by author Douglas Adams, famous for his Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books.  The TV show has garnered very good reviews for its first season, and with Elija Wood and Samuel Barnett as the main leads it does make perfect sense.

The president of BBC America Sarah Barnett spoke about the two actors and what to expect in the next season. She said; “Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett’s chemistry as oddball detective/sidekick duo, and our creators promising ever greater genius-weird cosmic mystery in the next case, we’re happy to announce more of this truly original and entertaining show.”

Season 2 of the show will air sometime in 2017. The penultimate episode of the show airs next Saturday on BBC America

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
