The Tick is back. Well, almost.
Amazon’s rebooted superhero series won’t begin streaming until next month, but fans can get a feel for the new iteration of The Tick from a few set photos released Thursday.
The shots, seen below, include the first look at the new Tick, Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Peter Serafinowicz, dressed in the iconic blue, antenna-topped jumpsuit. Other images include the series title card and a shot of Brendan Hines (Scorpion) in costume as Superian, a superhero pictured appearing on a talk show with Whoopi Goldberg (The View, perhaps?).
The new series will be executive produced by the franchise’s original creator, Ben Edlund, who started The Tick comic book series back in 1986. Edlund’s character has already helmed two of his own TV shows before this one — a 3-season animated series in 1994, and a 1-season live-action show starring Patrick Warburton in 2001.
The Tick pilot will stream on Amazon beginning Aug. 19.
