Meet the Big Blue Bug of Justice in trailer for Amazon's The Tick

Contributed by

Hello, world. The new trailer for Amazon’s The Tick is here!

The 12-episode series, produced by The Tick creator himself, Ben Edlund, Barry Josephson (Bones) and David Fury (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) as the Big Blue Bug of Justice and Griffin Newman as the Tick’s sidekick, Arthur Everest. The series also stars Valorie Curry, Jackie Earle Haley, Yara Martinez, Brendan Hines, Scott Speiser and Michael Cerveris.

There’s a lot to love in this first trailer, including the humor typical of the original comic and 2001 series starring Patrick Warburton in the titular role. Having seen the pilot for Amazon’s reboot, I will admit that I really, really like Serafinowicz in the role of the near-indestructible hero who can spout wise words of wisdom like “Murder, it’s just not cool.”

The first season of the superhero spoof will be split in two, with Part 1 of The Tick premiering on Aug. 25 on Amazon and Part 2 arriving in early 2018.
