Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman and the rest will have to stock up on talcum powder to help them get back into their suits as The Tick has been renewed for a second season.

It's something of a victory for series creator Ben Edlund, who has had trouble keeping Tick series on screens previously, at least in live-action form. "I am so excited that Amazon wants to continue this wildly fruitful collaboration and that this amazing cast gets to stay together, and that we get to build this mythos further, wider, deeper, and taller," says Edlund. "We got a good ball of mud spinning with the right tilt of axis, I'm very happy we have this opportunity to keep peopling it."

Now we know that Amazon Studios has ordered 10 more episodes, which will kick off filming this year, continuing the adventures of the earnest superhero and his awkward sidekick, to air in 2019.

Before that happens, though, we have the remaining six half-hour episodes due to hit Amazon's streaming service on 23 February. Citizens rejoice!
