The Tick Finally Meets a Spoon in This Exclusive Sneak Peek

SPOOOOOOOON!

The Tick returns to Amazon Prime Video on February 23, and in the remaining six episodes of Season 1, things are going to get weird(er).

After ending the first half of the season on a humdinger of a cliffhanger, creator Ben Edlund tells IGN that “we’re going to be feasting on Arthur meeting and dealing with his lifelong nemesis the Terror,” after the chilling villain captured our long-suffering sidekick-turned-hero in episode 6.

In drawing Arthur further into The Terror’s world, the show will also be exploring more of Arthur’s past, and the traumatic incident that bound him to the villain in the first place.

“One of the fun things that happens in the season that I’m really excited to have people get to watch is the Flag Five and the story of the death of those heroes and the death of Arthur’s father. That hangs like a specter over the story,” Edlund says. “It’s really a big part of the first season, Arthur’s origin story and his first moments with the Terror. But also Midnight, who’s another member of the Flag Five… he steps into the second half and we learn more about how he relates to the Flag Five and get to have fun with that character, and get to unfold what the Terror started that day, and in a lot of ways, how those things come back to both pay dividends to the Terror, and also in some ways act as a thorn in his side.”

Oh yeah, and The Tick finally gets to have a meaningful moment with a spoon, as you can see in IGN’s exclusive first look photos from Season 1, Part 2 below.

Meanwhile, Edlund teases, “I feel like it is reasonable to advertise that the Very Large Man, the VLM, gets very, very, very large. I would say it’s one of the larger naked problems that superheroes have had to deal with in the history of superhero fiction. There’s an inevitability about the growth of this giant problem, and the Tick and Arthur, as our main characters, end up having to wrangle that too. And that leads to some pretty epic scope. We did not flinch when it came to trying to go big.”

The Tick episodes 1-6 are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Episodes 7-12 will debut on the streaming service on February 23.
