Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency starts filming a second season of 10 episodes next month.. The filmed-in-Vancouver first season of eight episodes of the surreal detective series — inspired by the cult novel by Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams — is set in Seattle with Samuel Barnett (Jupiter Ascending) as the eccentric detective and Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) as his loner assistant Todd. Together they investigate seemingly unrelated cases which turn out to be connected to a larger supernatural mystery.
The Rowdy Boys — Michael Eklund, Viv Leacock, Zak Santiago and Osric Chau -— will be back. Osric Chau upped to a series regular.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is expected to film from May 8th to August 30th (dates subject to change) in metro Vancouver with the working title Sculptor.
