Brace yourself evildoers, because The Tick is coming back. What’s more, his new Amazon series now has an official release date, for justice will be dispensed in just a few short weeks on August 19. In addition to the release date, Amazon also released several photos of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Peter Serafinowicz donning the new blue suit and a new synopsis.
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion).
Of course, what you’re really waiting to see is what Serafinowicz looks like in the titular hero’s smashing blue suit, so without any further ado…
It’s definitely a different look than the cartoon-inspired suit Patrick Warburton sported, but overall Serafinowicz looks pretty keen. Amazon also provided a shot of Whoopi Goldberg interviewing Brendan Hines. It isn’t immediately clear who Hines’ character is — perhaps the latest version of the egotistical Die Fledermaus character?
What do you think? Ready to go on patrol with the new Tick?
