The much-loved TV version of The Tick was axed by Fox in its first season, after just nine episodes. Now, it looks like the Big Blue Bug of Justice is back! According to People, the show is being revived by Amazon – and Patrick Warburton will star! And original creator Ben Edlund will write and produce! SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
Via The Wrap, who received confirmation on the Amazon pilot from an individual with knowledge of the deal:
Warburton worked out a deal with Sony Television, who have held the rights since the show's 2001 cancellation, to bring back the beloved character as an Amazon pilot. Amazon's latest batch of pilots are currently available for free viewing on the streaming network. The company has established a tradition of producing its pilots and then offering them for free so viewers can watch and vote on them. Based in part on this feedback, the company then decides which shows to move forward with.
I, for one, am excited. Shall we partake in some nostalgic Tick-viewing this fine morning? I think yes:
