Amazon is bringing back The Tick, which is slightly old news.

Warburton is producing, but he's off doing his own sitcom and won't be available to play big blue.  Hold onto your hats, though.  They just cast Peter Serafinowicz as Big Blue.

Holy shit, I couldn't be happier.  I was pretty worried that they were going to hit the obvious replacement choice: Rob Riggle (who is a nice guy in real life, but who has no comedic control, IMO, and would bring a touch of unnecessary snark to the role).

Hmm, so this is going to be another live action one?  I never did watch the Warburton version, I only watched the cartoons and really enjoyed them at the time.

Yes, live action.  Edlund (the creator) is producing again (which may be why he is off Gotham).

IMDB lists it as a TV Movie, so maybe it's not a series as I'd assumed.  I'm sure if it does well enough...

As Engine mentioned here, this is coming to Amazon Prime today, and appears to be quite good.  One review I saw loved the first two incarnations (no mention of the comic), and thinks this is the best one to date.  I'm very excited.

I just watched it.  Seems pretty decent.  Not my favorite version of The Tick at all yet, but I'd like to see them work with it.

I'm curious to see how the more serious take works out.  I actually really like the inanity of the Tick fused into a world closer to our own with real violence and such.  But it will take some getting used to.

I am not a fan of the Tick's costume, however.  It needs to be a slightly deeper blue and a little less, I don't know, veiny?  It didn't actually look like veins, per se, but there were grooves running through the thing.  I didn't love Warburton's outfit so much, either (too dark and too rubbery), but it was better than this.

But, man, Serafinowicz nailed it.  The voice, the attitude.  He could be beefier, I guess, but I'm okay with his size.  But that voice.  Holy crap, it's just like the cartoon.  I shouldn't be surprised, since he's a good mimic, but I was floored.  Some of it seemed to be done in a looping session afterwards, but he seemed to be able to do it in the scene, too.

I liked Arthur.  I liked the Terror.  And Dot is really cute.

I hope it gets picked up (signs are pointing that way).  I'd definitely watch more.
