OK, so remember last week when we were pretty annoyed that FTN Favour Patrick Warburton and co would NOT be returning for the new Amazon The Tick Pilot?
Well, while we are still Ticked-off (I make no apologies), this news has brought a slight ray of sunshine.
British actor-comedian Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars: Episode I, Guardians of the Galaxy) will play The Tick in the new series based on Ben Edlund‘s comic character, report Deadline. Edlund, as we reported recently too, is writing and executive producing.
The reboot is bringing back the eponymous muscle-bound, antennae-sporting superhero (Serafinowicz). In the new incarnation, the blue-suited Tick is recovering from a memory loss and ends up reteaming with his sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) to fight evil. The two are surrounded by a new host of characters that include Arthur’s sister Dot (Valorie Curry).
