Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency stars Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about its new season. The show follows Todd Brozman, who’s been fired from his job as he becomes a suspect in a murder, and Dirk Gently, a detective on the case, as they partner up to solve the crime.

The series “celebrates outsiders; people who are on the fringes of society. It attracts people who have felt disenfranchised, left out, and unseen,” according to Barnett. Wood continues that a YouTube video summed the plot up as “a group of losers banding together to solve the case they’re involved in, [whose] imperfections make them great.”

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency‘s second season airs Saturday, October 14 at 9 pm EST on BBC America. Check out the full interview to get spoilers on this upcoming, and the seasons to follow, below.
