Get the details on The Tick, the New Amazon Studios Series on the flip…
CelebNMovies247.com has gotten word via ComingSoon that Patrick Warburton, who headlined the previous live-action take on The Tick will be attached as an executive producer for the new show.
Executive producers Ben Edlund and Barry Josephson will also be returning to the project.
It gets better, Edlund, who created The Tick, is also writing the new series.
Peter Serafinowicz joins a The Tick cast that already is set to feature Vinyl star Griffin Newman as accountant-turned-moth-themed-superhero Arthur Everest, while House of Lies‘ Valorie Curry will play Arthur’s sister, Dot.
If you remember, FOX debuted the live-action The Tick series with a pilot episode directed by Barry Sonnenfeld in 2001 (seen above). The series only lasted nine episodes before being cancelled. However, The Tick has remained a cult hit and that is why its getting a rebirth 15 years later.
We would imagine the success of the Marvel Superhero TV series on both the CW and Netflix has a lot to do with its return.
As for, the new The Tick will feature a pilot episode helmed by Transcendence‘s Wally Pfister. Check back for additional casting announcements as soon as they become available.
