Amazon took a chance on the quirky and strange superhero spoof The Tick in 2016.I mean this isn’t Superman or Batman. But sometimes you have to take a chance if you want to find a winning show. Well, now it looks like that risk seems to be paying off for Amazon because it has now greenlit a second season of the show even though the first season isn’t yet finished airing.
The Tick is a character that comic fans love, but like I said, he’s no big name hero. It’s good that Amazon took the risk rather than playing it safe and delivering something that may have had a bigger name, but with a story we’ve all seen before.
“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,” series creator Ben Edlund said. “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.”
The Tick had this to say about the news. “You feel it too, don’t you? Destiny’s warm hand in the small of your back, pushing, pushing. She’s on a roll,” he said.
