THE TICK Gets a Full Season Order From Amazon!
The pilot episode for latest TV adaptation of The Tick premiered on Amazon last month and I thought it was great! I had a blast watching the series, and I really enjoyed Peter Serafinowicz's version of the character. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and I hoped that it would get picked up for a full season.
Amazon Studios announced that The Tick has officially received a full season order along with a couple of other series that include I Love Dick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson. I'm mostly excited for The Tick, though. I thought it was the best one out of the three.
I'm excited to see how the story for this latest version of The Tick plays out. There are a lot of talented people involved with developing this series including Barry Sonnenfeld (MIB) and The Tick creator Ben Edlund, who has been very excited about this new series, the direction it's going, and the darker tone that it has.
The series also stars Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin), and Brendan Hines (Scorpion).
The story is set "in a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with no superpowers at all (Griffin) realizes his city is owned by a global supervillain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover the conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero: the Tick (Serafinowicz)."
Are you excited to hear that this new series will continue? What did you think of the pilot episode?
