A co-production with Sony TV, The Tick centers on an underdog accountant with zero powers who comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. Yara Martinez, who reprises her role from the pilot as Ms. Lint, co-stars alongside Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman, Jackie Earle Haley, Valorie Curry and Brendan Hines.
Amazon’s first superhero series, created and executive produced by Ben Edlund, also will be making a major entrance at next week’s Comic-Con in San Diego with a The Tick Takeover event set up across the street from the confab. It will include a multi-room replica of The Tick’s warehouse set and other specific locations from the series.
The Tick Part 1, which consists of the first six episodes of Season 1, will be released exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, August 25. The Tick Part 2, comprised of the remaining six episodes, will be released in early 2018.
