Amazon announced today that The Tick has been picked up for a second season. The comic-based action comedy is midway through its freshman run, which released its first six episodes on Prime Video in August following the 2016 showing of its pilot.

The web giant's streaming service has ordered 10 new episodes for Season 2 of The Tick, which will kick off production later this year for a return in 2019.

Based on the comic book character of the same name, the half-hour show 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.

While it will be some time before the release of Season 2, fans still have six new Season 1 episodes to look forward to. Those will be released on February 23.
