Amazon’s The Tick to return in February 2018

The Tick Season 2 Arthur

Amazon Studios has announced that The Tick will resume its first season with six new episodes starting on Friday, February 23, 2018. In addition, it has released an exclusive poster just for New York Comic Con featuring Arthur Everest, which you can check out below.

I have to say, Arthur is looking very legit with his mechanical wings as he’s looking outside through a hole in a wall.

Synopsis: In a workaday world where superheroes fly among us, mild-mannered accountant Arthur Everest (GRIFFIN NEWMAN) suspects The City is controlled by a fabled villain known as The Terror (JACKIE EARLE HALEY), despite evidence of The Terror’s death 15 years ago. Arthur has a traumatic connection with The Terror, whose movements he has obsessively tracked since childhood. Arthur’s sister, Dot (VALORIE CURRY), is a paramedic who dotes on her brother but also provides a sibling’s tough love. The more he talks about super-villain super-conspiracies, the more she warns him to “keep it real.”

Fate soon brings Arthur together with a tall, verbally adroit muscleman with superpowers and a mysterious past: The Tick (PETER SERAFINOWICZ). As they investigate the mystery surrounding The Terror, they draw attention from the electrifying enigma known as Miss Lint and a hyper-violent vigilante named Overkill, confronting the complexity of the struggle between good and evil. THE TICK, bursting with relentlessly original storylines and quotable dialogue, shows what a blast crusading for truth and justice can be. Our culture is now awash with self-serious mythologies and grimly determined, interchangeable characters filling not just franchises but entire universes. The time has come for THE TICK.

The series, created by Ben Edlund, stars Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick, Griffin Newman as Arthur Everest, Jackie Earle Haley as The Terror, Valorie Curry as Dot Everest, Brendan Hines as Superian, Yara Martinez as Ms. Lint, Scott Speiser as Overkill, Michael Cerveris as Ramses IV, John Pirkis as Dr. Karamazov and Alan Tudyk as Dangerboa.
