The Tick television series might be done over at Amazon Studios, but that's not keeping one of the show's stars, Griffin Newman, who plays Arthur Everest on the superhero comedy series, from holding out hope it can be saved. Newman revealed on Twitter that the show is "very much still alive" and in the process of trying to find a new home.
Word of The Tick's cancellation first broke on May 17, when the character's creator, Ben Edlund, revealed on Twitter that Amazon had passed on renewing the show for a third season. At the time, Edlund also claimed that the series would be looking for a new home.
Our show is very much still alive at this moment! We’re all still under contract, and actively trying to find a new place to keep the show going! Fan demand is really what has the power to push us over the edge right now, so please be loud! It’s time to #SaveTheTick! https://t.co/zRvKDwxOzP— Griffin Newman (@GriffLightning) May 16, 2019
While the natural inclination these days might be to crowdfund a new season of The Tick, Newman made it clear in another tweet that such a campaign would be impossible to follow up on, and that the best possible place for the series to land would be a broadcast network. Newman said fan demand will likely be pivotal to the series getting picked up and minted #SaveTheTick to further that goal.
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.
