Citizens! The Tick has been renewed for season
Amazon’s superhero-spoofing series has nabbed a second season, the streaming giant announced Wednesday, comprising of 10 episodes that will begin production in 2018 and air in 2019. Created by Ben Edlund, who masterminded the original comic-book series and previous incarnation of The Tick, the comedy stars Peter Serafinowicz as the titular City-saving being and Griffin Newman as his sidekick Arthur.
“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,” Edlund, who also serves as an executive producer, said in a press release. “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 himself had a statement to share as well, according to Amazon: “You feel it too, don’t you? Destiny’s warm hand in the small of your back, pushing, pushing. She’s on a roll.”
In the meantime, the second half of The Tick‘s first season airs Feb. 23 on Amazon. Season 2 will debut in 2019.
