Hello, Citizens! Hopefully most of us have taken the time to enjoy the first half of the first season of Amazon Studio’s The Tick. The series stars Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick and Griffin Newman as Arthur. The second half of the season will be released on February 23, 2018 which will have the remaining six episodes.
The Tick has gotten some great reviews since it’s premiere, including a 93% Certified Fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Here are a couple of quotes from various media outlets:
“A smart parody of our current superhero obsession” – Kelly Lawler, USA Today
“[The Tick] is clever and crazy in the right proportions” – Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
“Amazon is bringing some welcome wit and warmth to the genre” – Daniel D’Addario, TIME
With The Tick‘s current success Amazon Studios today sent out a press release announcing that a second season for The Tick has been greenlit. Along with the leads already mentioned, creator of the series and executive producer Ben Edlund will return for the second season. It will consist of 10 episodes and will begin production sometime this year for a 2019 premiere on Prime Video exclusively for Prime members. Here is a comment from Edlund on the announcement:
“‘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,’ said 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.'”
In my opinion, The Tick is one of the best series on Prime Video. With all the superhero films and shows out there, it’s great to have one show that stands out without having to force any jokes. Also with the episodes only being half an hour, you can easily watch them at any time. What are your thoughts on The Tick so far? Let us know in the comment section below!
Oh and no Tick article would be complete without a word from the man himself, commenting on today’s news The Tick said:
“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 Amazon Studio’s The Tick will be released on Prime video February 23, 2018.
