It is being reported that BBC America has cancelled Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency after two seasons. The move to end the show comes just days after the comedic sci-fi series aired its second-season finale.

The cable network released the following statement this afternoon, confirming the news: "We are beyond proud of this brilliant original series and so appreciative of the outstanding team behind it including Max Landis, Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, and many many others. It was a privilege to work with this talented and passionate group of writers, producers and actors on these two seasons of Dirk. Thanks also to the passionate fans who embraced this fantastically novel world."

Along with his reluctant assistant Todd, played by Elijah Wood, the oddball duo embark on thrilling and bizarre adventures involving cases of the supernatural kind.
