Our hearts were broken recently when Amazon’s The Tick, a well-deserved revival of a classic franchise, was cancelled after only two seasons.
The excellent series, detailing the comedic superheroic adventures of the Tick and his mangerie of super and not-so-super friends and enemies, deserved way better, and creator Ben Edlund has been trying to get the show its just desserts since the bad news was announced last month.
Yesterday, though, Edlund tweeted to share that his efforts to find the show a new home on some other service had failed. In a series of Tweets, Edlund explained his desire to continue the saga of the Tick in another time and place with the current (wonderful) cast, but that this iteration is, sadly, completely finished.
After much door-knocking we have found no new home for the Tick series in this current market. #SaveTheTick & #LunaTickArmy I'm sorry we could not reward your glorious support with better news. I am so proud of the show, of the cast and crew and writers, and so warmed by the fans— ben_edlund (@ben_edlund) June 14, 2019
Please continue to choose love and hope for good things. And I think we might as well accept it as a law of the universe: when the time is right #TheTick always comes back…— ben_edlund (@ben_edlund) June 14, 2019
