Amazon Teases The Tick


In Case You Missed It, the beloved animated comedy series The Tick is being revived by Amazon Studios in live action form. Granted that we would prefer a return of the animated series, and I wouldn’t exactly call it massively underrated, but most would agree that it deserved much more exposure than it did, which is why we’re willing to take these live action take over nothing.

Amazon Studios describes their The Tick series much better and in greater detail below:

In a workaday world where superheroes fly among us, mild-mannered accountant Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman) suspects The City is controlled by a fabled villain known as The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), despite evidence of The Terror’s death 15 years ago. Arthur has a traumatic connection with The Terror, whose movements he has obsessively tracked since childhood. Arthur’s sister, Dot (Valorie Curry), is a paramedic who dotes on her brother but also provides a sibling’s tough love. The more he talks about super-villain super-conspiracies, the more she warns him to “keep it real.”

Fate soon brings Arthur together with a tall, verbally adroit muscleman with superpowers and a mysterious past: The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz). As they investigate the mystery surrounding The Terror, they draw attention from the electrifying enigma known as Miss Lint and a hyper-violent vigilante named Overkill, confronting the complexity of the struggle between good and evil. The Tick, bursting with relentlessly original storylines and quotable dialogue, shows what a blast crusading for truth and justice can be. Our culture is now awash with self-serious mythologies and grimly determined, interchangeable characters filling not just franchises but entire universes. The time has come for The Tick.

Got all that? The second part of the first season will debut on Amazon Prime in February. There will be a quiz. Also, here’s the trailer if you missed it the first time around:
