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

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).

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.

Returning cast

  • Samuel Barnett as Dirk Gently
  • Elijah Wood as Todd
  • Hannah Marks as Amanda
  • Jade Eshete as Farah Black
  • Fiona Dourif as Bart Curlish
  • Mpho Koaho as Ken
  • Michael Eklund, Viv Leacock, Zak Santiago and Osric Chau as The Rowdy 3
  • Dustin Milligan as Sergeant Hugo Friedkin

New cast

  • Amanda Walsh as Suzie Boreton
  • Tyler Labine as Sherlock Hobbs
  • Izzie Steele as Deputy Tina Tevetino
  • Aleks Paunovic as Wygar Oak
  • Alan Tudyk as Mr. Priest

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

Space Rabbit

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
