For those that enjoyed the pilot episode of The Tick from Amazon Studios, good news! The online studio has given the greenlight for a full season of the show.
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The pilot for The Tick starred Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.
The Tick was certainly a much bigger surprise than I thought it would be, and Peter Serafinowicz did a great job as the semi-delusional hero.
Now we just have to wait until sometime in 2017 when the show kicks off for Amazon Prime members.
