DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY – S2 – EP6 – GIRL POWER

ABOUT DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY – Saturdays at 9/8c on BBC AMERICA

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).

RETURNING AND NEW CAST:

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.

While investigating the 40-year-old case of the two dead bodies, Dirk and the gang are surprisingly joined by Bart, who relays that she was assaulted and spins the case in a new direction — an investigation into Suzie Boreton.

The season begins with Dirk trapped in the government organization of Blackwing for the last two months, unfortunately re-immersed in the nightmares of his childhood, and separated from Todd (Elijah Wood) and Farah (Jade Eshete). Dirk seems to be utterly defeated in his current surroundings with no obvious way out. Meanwhile, Todd and Farah are free, but on the run from the authorities. They are desperately clinging to what remains of their resolve to be reunited with not only Dirk, but also Todd’s sister, Amanda (Hannah Marks).

Like Dirk, with the exception of Vogel (Osric Chau), the Rowdy 3 (Michael Eklund, Viv Leacock, and Zak Santiago) have been captured by Blackwing; Vogel escaped with Amanda and they are determined to help their friends escape from Blackwing, if only they can find its top-secret location. Mr. Priest (Alan Tudyk), Blackwing’s enforcer, is in hot pursuit of them, and their time is quickly running out.

Blackwing is back up and running, but under the confused direction of its new leader, Hugo Friedkin (Dustin Milligan). He is unable to make heads or tails of the existing Blackwing subjects and their “gifts”, and finding that their vague powers offer him only frustration. Over time, he receives reassurance and guidance from his interactions with Ken (Mpho Koaho), the newest addition to the Blackwing subjects.

Meanwhile, Bart (Fiona Dourif) is traveling solo, looking for Ken every chance she gets. She is now in a self-imposed rehabilitation from her innate violent ways, but it’s not yet clear what impact her defiance will have on the universe.

Elsewhere, a woman named Suzie Boreton (Amanda Walsh) has a very bad day.

Everything and everyone continues to be connected… from the sterile chambers of 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.

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. Season one is available to binge on Hulu.
