The Tick Past and Present Casts Reunite for Live Readings
It seems that fans will hear from The Tick at least one more time. In just a few days, cast members from every iteration of Ben Edlund’s The Tick will gather for a live-streamed reading of the unproduced episodes. The reunion will feature Peter Serafinowicz, Patrick Warburton, and Townsend Coleman’s The Tick, together with all the Arthurs, and many other allies and enemies. And it’s also for a good cause since it benefits food banks across the country.
Even though it had a devoted cult following, Ben Edlund’s superhero hasn’t had much luck on TV over the years. Its latest TV foray ended after Amazon Prime didn’t renew the series for the third season. Edlund tried to search for a new outlet for the show but his efforts to save it have fallen short.
All the Ticks reunion cast sees:
Peter Serafinowicz (The Tick), Griffin Newman (Arthur), Valorie Curry (Dot), Brendan Hines (Superian), Scott Speiser (Overkill), Yara Martinez (Ms. Lint), Alan Tudyk (Dangerboat), and Jackie Earle Haley (The Terror) from the 2016 Amazon series. From the 2001 Fox series: Patrick Warburton (The Tick), David Burke (Arthur), and Liz Vassey (Captain Liberty).
From the 1994 animated series: Townsend Coleman (The Tick), Rob Paulsen (Arthur), Cam Clarke (Die Fledermaus), Jess Harnell (Sewer Urchin), Jim Cummings (Mr. Mental), and erstwhile Monkee Micky Dolenz (Arthur). The Tick creator Ben Edlund will take part together with writer/producer Christopher McCulloch.
All the Ticks will start at 4 pm PT/ 7 pm ET on Sunday, Nov. 15. The stream will remain available until midnight ET on Nov. 22.
