Amazon will not squash "The Tick," renews it for second season

In a world with too many superhero shows, Amazon took the only fork in the road and opted for the most surreal superhero in their revival of The Tick. The first half of the first season (strange choice, yes) premiered last year and moved the comic character to new, adult heights. This versions is dark yet just as lively and grim but equally funny. 

Now Amazon is opting to stick with The Tick for another season set to air in 2019 says Deadline. Their practices in producing and airing the show are strange but at least we have more of The Tick. Series creator Ben Edlund will stick around as he's always done since the first Tick comics and shows. Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman, Valorie Curry, Brendan Hines, Yara Martinez, Scott Speiser, Michael Cerveris, John Pirkis and Alan Tudyk all should return too. The final six episodes of season one will air on February 23.

We favorably reviewed the first batch of episodes. Here's what we said: "If you haven’t seen any iteration of this affable blue oaf, you’re in for a treat. While the writing isn’t too fresh, the one liners are superb; the casting is good; and the show fills a niche of campy superhero properties the world desperately needed."
