BBC America has cancelled Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency after two seasons. The network has opted not to continue the serialized comic sci-fi series for Season 3.
With the axe falling, the Dec. 16 season finale now stands as show’s unplanned series ender.
In a farewell letter to fans, BBC America said of the decision to cancel Dirk Gently:
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.
