It’s official! Deadline is reporting that Amazon has greenlit a second season for their new original show The Tick. The site notes that the second season of the half-hour superhero series will go into production later this year, and will be returning exclusively to Amazon Prime Video in 2019.
“I am so excited that Amazon wants to continue this wildly fruitful collaboration and that this amazing cast gets to stay together, and that we get to build this mythos further, wider, deeper, and taller,” said Edlund about the renewal. “We got a good ball of mud spinning with the right tilt of axis, I’m very happy we have this opportunity to keep peopling it.”
For unaware about the the, The Tick is centered around the titular superhero The Tick, and his unwilling sidekick Author, who must confront the world’s worst evil: The Terror. The show itself embraces the golden age of superheroes, while mixing in a healthy dose of satire, which leads to an all around enjoyable experience.

Creator Ben Edlund (Firefly, Supernatural, Gotham) will return for the new season, along with leads Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Tick and Griffin Newman (Search Party) as Arthur. Valorie Curry, Brendan Hines, Yara Martinez, Scott Speiser, Michael Cerveris, John Pirkis and Alan Tudyk also star in supporting roles, and most are expected to return. Deadline points out that additional casting is expected.
