Over the weekend rumors popped up that Amazon was considering bringing back the live-action television series based on The Tick complete with Patrick Warburton returning as the title character.
Obviously fans of the short lived, but very awesome, series on Fox were exited, and today the character’s creator took to Twitter to announce that a new series is being pursued:
Yes for now suffice it to say the dream of a new live-action Tick is being pursued with vigor #bringbackTheTick

The original series ran for nine episodes on Fox back in 2001 before being cancelled. It’s not known if the other characters and actors from the series will return for the Amazon version.
