Description: Penned by Max Landis and from the producers of The Walking Dead, the series is a comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric “holistic” detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood). The series is an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) wildly successful comic novels, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and is set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective.  This season, Dirk and Todd wind their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth. BBCAmerica.com

Season End Status: This show delivered some pretty low linear viewing numbers in its run on BBC America, but it was likely kept afloat by its Netflix international partnership as it most certainly plays better in Britain and other parts of Europe. Whether that can keep it around longer than its second season remains to be seen.
