Amazon has undergone significant changes in recent months with regard to its TV department. Not only is the company aiming for broader, Lord of the Rings-size hits under a new studio head, but Amazon may drop its signature pilot process of letting viewers pick new series.
Those tuning into Amazon’s reboot of The Tick this weekend were hit with two surprises. For one, the series itself proved much more layered than expected, and second; the season was only half-streamed. Now, showrunners explain why the second half of The Tick Season 1 will premiere in 2018.
We’ve seen Amazon’s The Tick reboot in action with the pilot, but the finished product is a spoonful of delight. Watch the big blue bug take a serious beating with an action-packed clip from the new episodes premiering this August.
It’s nearing the end of the month, which means it’s time for streaming services to start rolling out their new instant releases. August is an exciting month for Amazon Prime subscribers, as seasons of four original shows are debuting next month, not least of all is the first season of The Tick!
Fear not, citizens! New York’s finest streaming superheroes will finally hit the streets in late August. No, not The Defenders, but Amazon’s The Tick! Spoon your loved ones and check out a new August premiere teaser.
Amazon’s live-action reboot of The Tick obviously went over well enough to earn a full series pickup, though fans were admittedly less impressed with star Peter Serafinowicz’s hyper-detailed costume. Now that production on the full series has officially gotten underway, however, the Guardians of the Galaxy star is suiting up in something a bit less conspicuous.
