Creator of ‘The Tick’ Announces End of Series

All good things must come to an end, sometimes too soon. On Friday, Ben Edlund, creator of The Tick announced the end of the series. Its a result of failed efforts to find the superhero series a new home after being canceled by Amazon in May. Disappointed fans can now join the ranks of Marvel fans that had their favorite shows booted from a streaming service.

With critical acclaim for both of its seasons and much love from its fanbase, this news comes as a huge shock.  The shows creator announced the news via Twitter saying,

“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.”

However, Edlund retains some hope in his last tweet of the day:

“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…”

A good show always finds its way back in some form or fashion. Whether it finds a new home or ends up as a feature film, I believe The Tick will return.
