THE TICK: Amazon Series To Premiere In August

The Tick

Amazon’s Upcoming Series The Tick Will Debut Summer Of 2017

Amazon has announced that it’s new TV revival of the satirical superhero franchise The Tick will officially premiere on August 25th.

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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
