Amazon Reviving THE TICK With Patrick Warburton September 1, 2014 Spoon! Warburton may return as “The Big Blue Bug of Justice”… Multiple outlets are reporting that Amazon is looking to revive the short-lived live-action series ‘The Tick,’ with plans for Patrick Warburton to reprise his role as the invulnerable, somewhat dim, superhero. Based on the comic book by artist/writer Ben Edlund, blue-antennaed superhero was first brought to the small screen as an animated series in 1994. The cult-classic series starring Warburton arrived in 2001; however, the series was cancelled after just nine episodes. Edlund (‘Supernatural,’ ‘The Venture Bros.,’ ‘Firefly,’ ‘Angel’) is on board to pen the new series and serve as producer.
