The Tick Returns to Amazon in August (Trailer)

After debuting last year alongside I Love Dick (hell no) and Jean Claude Van Johnson (hell yes), The Tick returns for it’s full season on August 25th.  The latest incarnation of the virtually indestructible, possibly insane comic superhero, Peter Serafinowicz puts on the blue body armor of The Tick while Griffin Newman plays his reluctant partner Arthur, who gains his own superpowered moth suit.  In the pilot, Arthur was obsessed with the idea that a long thought dead supervillain (played by Jackie Earle Haley), who also killed Arthur’s father, may be back and running the city’s crime underworld and it seems like the season will be proving him right.  It looks like it has the same goofy tone as the old Fox show and cartoon series, with The Tick always positive and spouting ridiculous phrases and colorful villains, although it seems like maybe not as insane as the cartoon, which had characters like Chairface Chippendale, who literally had a chair for a head.  You can watch the pilot episode right now if you have Amazon Prime and you can check out the new trailer below.
