We've been waiting on a new batch of The Tick episodes for quite some time now, and today we're thrilled to announce that the wait is almost over: according to the press release that just hit our inbox, Ben Edlund's excellent superhero send-up will return to Amazon next month. February 23rd, to be precise.
To mark the occasion, Amazon also released a brand-new trailer. Give it a look.
From the looks of the above, the back-half of season one will find The Tick (the very funny Peter Serafinowicz) and Arthur (the ravishing Griffin Newman) rounding up some of the former's old superhero co-horts (Serafinowicz's delivery of the line "Let's call Overkill!" is killing me) to take on the ever-increasing threat of The Terror (a pitch-perfect Jackie Earle Haley).
Here's a new poster, just because.
If this new batch of episodes is as strong as the first (and, man, it really does look like they've stepped up their game here) we're all in for a treat when The Tick returns on the 23rd. You folks as hyped about this as we are? Sound off in the comments below.
