No Season 3 for the action comedy.
May 16, 2019
It is being reported that Amazon has cancelled The Tick after two seasons. Series creator Ben Edlund confirmed the news on Twitter, expressing his sadness and his appreciation to those involved with the show.
The cancellation comes the month following the action comedy's sophomore release, which dropped in its entirety on April 5 on the Prime Video platform. Viewership data is not made public by Amazon, but the series was well-regarded by both fans and critics alike.
Based on the comic book character of the same name, The Tick takes place in a world where superheroes are nothing new. When an accountant with mental health issues begins to suspect his city is owned by a seemingly-dead global super villain, he attempts to uncover the conspiracy. Teaming up with a nearly-invulnerable superhero in a blue costume named The Tick, they work together to combat crime and uncover the mysterious figure behind the city's underworld.
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.— ben_edlund (@ben_edlund) May 16, 2019
@Khelben & @Troz1958 the main story got an ending but the final scene was a cliff hanger which i would of loved to see be expanded on with the next season, lets hope they can find a new home.
Will be missed, amazon needs to prioritize good content over renewing rubbish or creating new 1 season duds. I expect it was purely financial as i don't expect this show to be cheap to make with all the costumes and effects necessary. Oh well, at least we got 2 seasons and a nicely fleshed out story/ character development.
Here's to hoping someone else gives it a chance and we can celebrate with a dance part!
