The Tick is taking us behind-the-scenes of its second season, with a new video released at Comic-Con.
The teaser, which debuted at the San Diego event this weekend, takes us back into a world where superheroes and villains have been real for decades. The show follows Arthur (Griffin Newman), an unassuming accountant with no superpowers, becomes embroiled in the middle of the battle between good and evil. When he realises that his city is owned by a global supervillain who was long thought to be dead, he struggles to uncover the conspiracy. As he becomes obsessed with the conspiracy, most people think he’s crazy. One person who believes Arthur is a mysterious new ally, The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz), who is a bizarre blue superhero who may just be a figment of Arthur’s imagination.
With The Tick and Arthur winning the right to be superheroes, and their relationship established, Edlund promised that more heroes will come out of the woodwork, with one unnamed character from the comics set to appear, and while another (who is a toy) will “loom increasingly in the continuity”.
Alongside the new characters, who will be unveiled at a future date, Edlund also teased a slight shift in tone.
“We’ve got a little monster movie element to our new season. Expanding the world has been part of our goal,” commented.
The Tick Season 2 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2019. Here’s the video:
Amazon renews The Tick for Season 2
17th January 2018
Amazon’s The Tick will return for Season 2.
The superhero series, which returns for its second half of Season 1 next month, is set in a world where heroes have been real for decades. Arthur, an accountant with mental health issues and zero powers, comes to suspect his city is owned by a global super-villain, The Terror, who has long been thought dead. As he struggles to uncover the conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero – The Tick. They launch into an adventure brimming with crazed arch-villains, blood-soaked vigilantes, and superhuman freakery.
The show first launched last year, after winning positive feedback from the public during Amazon’s TV pilot season. Now, Amazon Studios has announced that a second run of adventures has been greenlit. Creator Ben Edlund (Firefly, Supernatural, Gotham) will return, along with leads Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Tick and Griffin Newman (Search Party) as Arthur, with additional casting to be announced.
“Ben has created a resounding hit while Peter and Griffin have brought Tick and Arthur to indelible life,” says Sharon Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “We can’t wait to bring fans more of the Tick universe soon.”
“I am so excited that Amazon wants to continue this wildly fruitful collaboration and that this amazing cast gets to stay together and we get to build this mythos further, wider, deeper, and taller,” comments Edlund. “We got a good ball of mud spinning with the right tilt of axis, I’m very happy we have this opportunity to keep peopling it.”
“You feel it too, don’t you?” adds The Tick. “Destiny’s warm hand in the small of your back, pushing, pushing. She’s on a roll.”
Season 2 of The Tick will comprise 10 episodes and begin production this year, ahead of an expected 2019 release date. Part 2 of Season 1 will land on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 23rd February. See the trailer here.
