Amazon Prime Video’s The Tick is back! The fledgling* streaming service opened with a small but prestigious range of series offerings, including The Grand Tour – aka Top Gear 2.0 – and the Neil Gaiman adaptation American Gods, but this is the one that really captured our hearts – The Tick, the latest incarnation of Ben Edlund’s big, blue buffoonish super hero parody.
Season 1 part 2 sees The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz, note perfect) and his hapless sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) putting a team together to combat the menace of the supervillain known as The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), including Punisher-alike Overkill (Scott Speiser), drug-addled superdude Superian (Brendan Hines) and a talking dog. Because of course.
It looks like a total blast. The Tick bounds into your Amazon Prime Video subscription on February 23, 2018. Meanwhile, have a poster:
