Amazon just announced a full-season pick up of the live action superhero comedy The Tick, but showrunner Ben Edlund is already thinking ahead through five full seasons of the “Big Blue Bug of Justice” and his sidekick Arthur Everest.
From the animated series to comic books, The Tick has proven to have some legit staying power over the decades. Now he’s finally coming back to live action. But how will it differ from Fox’s short-lived (but beloved) attempt in 2001?
For a live-action series that lasted just nine episodes, the legacy of The Tick has managed to endure for decades (of course, the comics and animated series helped). So how do they plan to bring that concept back to life with a new Amazon pilot?
