Funny, eloquent, rude and a tiny bit presumptuous, Dirk Gently has strange psychic abilities that enable him to sense tangential connections. He’s turned these abilities into his new profession: that of a “holistic detective,” a term that reflects his belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. More than anything, Dirk has spent his whole life searching to be understood and by the end of season one, Dirk found himself for the first time surrounded by people he could call friends. This season, Dirk must face his past with Blackwing, the government program that dominated his childhood, all while working to solve his new case to “find the boy.”
