Yeah, that’s Peter Serafinowicz encased in a giant, bright blue Tick costume. The new Tick show is gonna be weird.
This morning Amazon announced that The Tick will return next month on its streaming service, and in the process unveiled the show’s banner—giving us a look at the back of the new Tick costume—and two new stills from the show. One gives us Serafinowicz in all his bright blue glory, the other features Whoopi Goldberg interviewing another superhero. Check them out below, alongside the official synopsis for the series:
