Dirk is back with an all new adventure beginning [B]Saturday, October 14 at 9/8c[/B]. The first season was really quite fun, so here's to more of the same in season two!

[QUOTE]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 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).[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]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.[/QUOTE]

Shiggy 10-07-2017 09:39 AM

Any information already on when season 2 lands on Netflix? Will it be available globally at the same time?

The SVOD home in the US is Hulu; internationally, it [I]should[/I] be on Netflix by the end of the year.

Fat4all 10-07-2017 09:49 AM

Yeah, I really enjoyed the first season, glad this got made so fast.

In for Todd. Also some British person.

RatskyWatsky 10-14-2017 08:10 AM

The season premiere is tonight!

[QUOTE][B]Space Rabbit[/B]

[SPOILER]In the Season 2 premiere, Todd and Farah are on the run from the law and head to small town Bergsberg, Montana in search of Dirk. Mysteriously, Bart's search for Ken takes her to the same small town, where unexplainable events start occurring.[/SPOILER][/QUOTE]

Damn I'm working tonight. I can't believe I'm going to miss Gotham and Gently every week.

T.v 10-14-2017 08:51 AM

Oh man, season 1 was loads of fun. Definitely excited for this. Hope it comes to Netflix soon.

Beaniedude 10-14-2017 08:53 AM

Oh nice, wasn't expecting this so soon. I am so in.

iapetus 10-14-2017 09:29 AM

When's it on in the UK? Anyone?

Aztechnology 10-14-2017 09:46 AM

Oh damn, I didn't know it was back so soon. Loved the first season. Will be interesting to see how Season 2 turns out. I had heard he hadn't planned for season 2?

dragonlife 10-14-2017 09:48 AM

I really enjoyed the first season.

Elijah Wood is so <3.

Should be later this year on Netflix.

Bit odd for a programme from BBC America, unless they had no part in funding it.

It's a co-production between BBC America and Netflix. BBCA has the linear rights and Hulu the SVOD rights in the US. Netflix gets it everywhere else.

RatskyWatsky 10-15-2017 07:01 AM

Thought the premiere was pretty tepid to be honest. I'm not sure it was the best idea to repeat season one's "puzzling things happen to a million different characters, with no context for anything" format in the second year. Still, even though I would have liked something a little more different, I'm sure the season will shape up nicely as it goes along.

[QUOTE=RatskyWatsky;251975651]Should be later this year on Netflix.[/QUOTE]

I (wrongly) assumed that Netflix would be bringing the episodes over to the UK weekly, much like they do with The Good Place or other TV shows. Damn, guess I will have to wait.

Geist- 10-15-2017 09:17 AM

Season trailer was great (as was the first season), can't wait to watch this.

Santiako 10-15-2017 05:32 PM

First episode was mostly setup and well, if the trailer is anything to go by, this season will out-weird the first one haha.

RoadHazard 10-15-2017 05:50 PM

Why the fuck isn't this on Netflix yet (in Sweden)? Please don't tell me they didn't snatch the rights for S2? I need this show, absolutely loved the first season.

[QUOTE=RatskyWatsky;251975651]Should be later this year on Netflix.[/QUOTE]

What does that mean? When?

It will be on Netflix in Europe when the season is complete, same as the first one.

HotHamBoy 10-15-2017 05:59 PM

I enjoyed Dirk s1 despite myself. A lot of things didn't really work for me but the things that did really stuck.

CoolestSpot 10-19-2017 03:23 PM

I loved the first season through and through and didn't have any real problems. This season seems to have a great plot with an evil government organization and a dimension children's straight out of a children's book.

I'm starting to notice a trend in how dialogue and characters are written, and it was a bit unexpected for the jump ahead 2 months with so many differences but I guess that's to be expected. Plus it adds more to the story.

I'm all in.

Yo GAF; anyone here still watching this? I just finished the recent episode and and I absolitley adore this season. They hit the vibe so perfectly! Every episode I have no idea what is gonna happen, the whole holistic case is constructed brillantly and every actor seems to enjoy him or herself in their roles.

This is easily my favourite TV series atm and I am looking forward to it every week.

Also great music and sound design in general. I recently bought fome fine speakers and this is one of the moments, when I really appreciate it. The intro theme alone. So crisp and weid and such a nice base. Last episoded song in the end was epic too.

Man, this series reminds me of falling in love with parcs and rec, late in this shows runtime. For a short while I felt like witnessing a real friendship and season two of Gently hits the same spot. Yo and GAF does to from time to time.

So any love for Dirk and his awesome team here?

MaKTaiL 11-13-2017 11:33 PM

I do. I'm loving this season too but I'm mostly using Reddit to discuss the episodes since Neogaf is so dead at the moment,

T.v 11-14-2017 07:19 AM

I'm just waiting for season 2 to make it to Netflix. Season 1 was one of the biggest surprises of last year for me so I am definitely excited for 2.
