Though Amazon Video may have recently binned three of its original comedy series (including One Mississippi, I Love Dick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson), the streaming service still has faith in The Tick.
The show, which stars Peter Serafinowicz as the titular blue superhero, has officially been renewed for Season 2.
“Ben has created a resounding hit while Peter and Griffin have brought Tick and Arthur to indelible life,” said Sharon Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “We can’t wait to bring fans more of the Tick universe soon.”
Series creator Ben Edlund added: “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.”
The Tick is set to return to Amazon Video for the second half of Season 1 in February. You can read the synopsis here:
