Bad news for fans of Amazon’s The Tick tonight, I’m afraid…

Creator Ben Edlund has taken to social media (below) to reveal that Amazon Prime has pulled the plug on the show’s third season.

“I’m sorry to say Amazon has chosen not to proceed with [The Tick],” Edlund wrote.

“I’m not sorry to say I love this show, its cast, its story, and its message. Destiny demands that my compatriots and I now seek a new home for this series.”

He went on in another tweet: “Meanwhile thank u from my heart’s bottom to all the fans who’ve shared their love with us and the show. Thank you sweet #LunaTicks and #LunaTickArmy for your militant affection 🙂 We want to find a place to make more. That is the mission now and we are on it.”

While this is sad news, there is a #SaveTheTick campaign already underway… so there’s still hope.


Are you sad to see the end of the series? Let me know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
