THE TICK May Be Returning To Television With Patrick Warburton Reprising Lead Role

Green Arrow, The Flash and even the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Gotham's cops are on TV, so...why not The Tick too? According to a new report, Patrick Warburton (Ted) is being eyed to reprise the role in the short-lived series as Amazon make plans to bring it back. Read on for details!

A lot of TV shows which were prematurely cancelled deserve a comeback, but is The Tick among them? I'll have to leave that up to you guys to decide, but rumour has it that the series which aired for only nine episodes on Fox from 2001 to 2002 is set to find a new home on Amazon. The source (People) is questionable, but here's what they say. Original star Patrick Warburton has apparently signed a deal with Amazon and Sony to return as The Tick and original creator Ben Edlund will produce and write the series which will then air on the online streaming service. Edlund also penned the comic book which spawned an animated series back in the 90s, and the live-action show - which also starred Lost's Nestor Carbonell - has gained a bit of a Firefly-like cult following. By all accounts, it wasn't a bad series, but Fox failed to find an audience for it which is why it didn't last. Would you be interested in tuning in to a new iteration of The Tick

Warburton looks like Alex Ross Superman.

We may get 5 seasons of the new Tick show before we get 1 more of the Venture Bros.

What about Batmanuel?!?! We need fondue!
VikingKing - 8/29/2014, 7:39 PM
This would complete me. I'd finally be a whole person.
Natetrix79 - 8/29/2014, 7:44 PM
YES!!!!!!!! SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!! And The Midnight Bomber was hands down one of my favorite episodes of the animated show. He needs the live action treatment so does Chair Face Chip & Dale, make it happen people!
SymbioteJoker - 8/29/2014, 7:46 PM
Yes, yes, and yes
ruadh - 8/29/2014, 7:47 PM

Great stuff!

Anyone who hasn't seen The Tick, I highly recommend you give it a try. It may Surprise you.

Dingbat - 8/29/2014, 7:56 PM

It's funny that Batmanuel was the mayor of Gotham in TDK Trilogy.

2gold - 8/29/2014, 8:01 PM

That's why Batman was able to retire for a long time, Batmanuel was handling crime.

What they need to do is bring back the cartoon. But nevertheless, The Tick is awesome so this is good news. Although Amazon blows, so I will probably have to steal the show 0-:-/
Spidey91 - 8/29/2014, 8:10 PM
I remember this show!
wbrowning79 - 8/29/2014, 8:11 PM
YES!!!!!!!!! I've been waiting for this for years!!!!!!!!
Dingbat - 8/29/2014, 8:16 PM

Exactly. It's the only logical explanation.
captquirk - 8/29/2014, 8:20 PM
The animated show was great, the live show was kinda watered down. Warburton was great as Tick, but I think they waited too long to bring him back.
Dingbat - 8/29/2014, 8:28 PM

He's 49 now so perhaps, but it isn't necessarily going to be live action. Even if it is Warburton looks good for his age.
Mercwitham0uth - 8/29/2014, 8:57 PM
The live action series sucked. Bring back the cartoon instead. It was superior in every way.
aveune - 8/29/2014, 8:58 PM
Bring back Young Justice!
