Amazon’s Upcoming Series The Tick Will Debut Summer Of 2017
Last year, the streaming service made available an episode that served as a pilot for the series for viewers to watch and rate. The installment was one of three other such pilots, the other two being I Love Dick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson. All of the episodes were picked up to series, although The Tick has been the one to get the most attention.
Starring Peter Serafinowicz as the title character, the program also stars Griffin Newman and Valorie Curry. Additionally, Jackie Earle Haley has a role as The Terror, a geriatric villain who has terrorized the world for over a century.
Superherohype, the source of this story, shares the following about the long-running comic property:
The Tick was originally created by Edlund in 1986 as a mascot for New England Comics. Edlund then brought the nigh-invulnerable justice seeker to life in The Tick’s own book two years later. In 1994, the first The Tick series came to television as an animated half-hour show which ran for two seasons and 36 episodes. All but two of those episodes have been released on DVD. However, citing “creative considerations,” “The Tick vs. The Mole Men” and “Alone Together” were omitted from their respective DVD sets.
