In some news that’s likely to put a smile on the face of many a genre fan, Amazon Studios has moved to confirm The Tick for a second season.
Creator Ben Edlund will be returning for said second year, as will Peter Serafinowicz as the titular Tick and Griffin Newman as Arthur. Production on the ten-episode Season 2 will start later this year ahead of a 2019 premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
On this news, Amazon Studios’ Sharon Yguado said, “Ben has created a resounding hit while Peter and Griffin have brought Tick and Arthur to indelible life. We can’t wait to bring fans more the Tick universe soon.”
Edlund enthused, “I am so excited that Amazon wants to continue this wildly fruitful collaboration and that this amazing cast gets to stay together, and that we get to build this mythos further, wider, deeper, and taller. 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.”
Adding to this charming news, The Tick himself added, “You feel it too, don’t you? Destiny’s warm hand in the small of your back, pushing, pushing. She’s on a roll.”
The second half of The Tick’s first season returns to Amazon on February 23rd, with six new episodes booked in to conclude the debut year of this new series.
