BBC America has released the full length trailer for the upcoming second season of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and in it, we see that things are only about to get weirder.
Based on the novel series of the same name and adapted for television by Max Landis (Chronicle), Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency follows “holistic” detective Dirk Gently, who understands the interconnectivity of the universe, as he teams up with former bellhop Todd (Elijah Wood) to solve cases. Season two will following Dirk and Todd’s search for “The Boy,” as well as the fantasy kingdom of Wendimoor’s quest to fulfill an ancient prophecy, with the series having added several new players – Tyler Labine (Reaper) as Sherlock Hobbs, a small town sheriff who gets entangled in the hunt to find The Boy; Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory) as dangerous Blackwing-affiliated bounty hunter Mr. Priest; Amanda Walsh (Lost Girl) as Suzie, an insecure, unfulfilled soccer mom who transforms herself into seductive sorceress; John Hannah (Damages) as sociopathic wizard The Mage, who’s looking to destroy two worlds; and Aleks Paunovic (War for the Planet of the Apes) as Wyger Oak, a dominating enforcer for the Dengdamor royal family.
