Dirk Gently cancelled forever.
In unsurprising news, efforts to find cancelled BBC America drama Dirk Gently a new home for Season 3 have ended in tears.
Exec producer Arvind Ethan David took to social media to confirm that, despite lukewarm interest from the likes of Netflix, attempts to revive Dirk Gently Season 3 have failed:
“The Change.org campaign, the social media love, the power-hours on Twitter, the letter and postcard campaign. All Amazing — above and beyond fandom. However, it isn’t going to result in the outcome we’ve all hoped and worked toward. There will not be a season three of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. We tried, and we’ve explored all options.
Further explaining the failed resurrection, David notes that the show’s viewer base wasn’t large enough to make Dirk Gently Season 3 viable:
Ultimately, whilst the passion of the fan base has never been in question, there just isn’t a big enough audience for the economics to work out.”
