The Tick creator Ben Edlund has revealed the status of the television series over social media.
Posting to Twitter, Edlund revealed to fans that the show has not been picked up by any other streaming service, and that the show is officially dead. "I'm sorry we could not reward your glorious support with better news," Edlund wrote. He did say in a subsequent tweet the producers would "look for other opportunities to continue this story with this cast," though was clear the current series is done.
After much door-knocking we have found no new home for the Tick series in this current market. #SaveTheTick & #LunaTickArmy I'm sorry we could not reward your glorious support with better news. I am so proud of the show, of the cast and crew and writers, and so warmed by the fans— ben_edlund (@ben_edlund) June 14, 2019
The newest incarnation of The Tick ran for two seasons on Amazon Prime before the streaming service pulled the plug on the show earlier this year. Edlund was optimistic the show could find a new home on a different streaming service, as was cast member Griffin Newman. Fan support cropped up around the show as it searched for a new home for a potential third season.
The Tick was the third televised incarnation of the superhero comedy character. There had previously been an animated series in the 1990s and another short-lived live-action take on the hero, which starred Patrick Warburton, in 2000.
The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz as the titular character, Griffin Newman as Arthur Everest, Yara Martinez as Miss Lint, Scott Speiser as Overkill, Brendan Hines as Superian and Valorie Curry as Dot Everest. The first two seasons of the series are available on Amazon Prime.
