Plot Synopsis

In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, Arthur, an accountant with mental health issues and zero powers, comes to suspect his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover the conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero, The Tick, who just might be a figment of his imagination. They launch into an adventure brimming with crazed archvillains, blood-soaked vigilantes, and superhuman freakery. Based on the comic-book character of the same name created by Ben Edlund, THE TICK is a half-hour comedy series that first debuted on August 15, 2016 when Amazon released the pilot episode. More than one year later -- on Friday, August 24, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT -- Amazon released the first six episodes of THE TICK.
On Friday, February 23, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Amazon released the next six episodes of the first season of THE TICK. In the mid-season premiere, "Tale from the Crypt," Arthur has a surprising encounter while in The Terror's lair. The Tick attempts a rescue with Dot and Overkill. Then, in the second new episode, "After Midnight," Arthur, Dot, and Overkill try to get a message to Superian, with the help of a retired hero.
