The second half of season one of The Tick is set to premiere on Friday, February 23, 2018 on Amazon Prime Video. In support of the show’s return next month, Amazon’s released a brand new trailer along with two posters including one featuring the ruthless supervillain, The Terror, played by Jackie Earle Haley.
The series was created by Ben Edlund and stars Peter Serafinowicz (The Tick), Griffin Newman (Arthur Everest), Valorie Curry (Dot Everest), Brendan Hines (Superian), Yara Martinez (Ms. Lint), and Scott Speiser (Overkill). Additional season one actors include Townsend Coleman (voicing Midnight), John Pirkis (Dr. Karamazov), Ryan Woodie (VLM), Devin Ratray (Tinfoil Kevin), and Alan Tudyk (voicing Dangerboat).
Amazon confirmed part two of the comedy’s first season will consist of six new episodes. The first half of season one currently sits at 93% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, with Boston Globe’s Matthew Gilbert complimenting the show’s star, saying, “Like the trademark antennae that dance on the Tick’s head, Serafinowicz has his character’s oddball rhythms down pat.”
The Plot: In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an accountant with mental health issues and zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. Together, they launch into an adventure brimming with crazed archvillains, blood-soaked vigilantes, mad science, and superhuman freakery.
The Part 2 Plot: Evil is on the march, and The City is right in its way. Something terrible is going to happen, and Destiny needs her champions now more than ever. The Tick and Arthur round up the gang in a crash collision course between justice and villainy.
