The Amazon-produced superhero series follows the titular blue character (Peter Serafinowicz) and his friend Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman), an accountant with no superpowers.

An official synopsis for the new season of the show reads: “In its second season, Tick and Arthur have freed the City from The Terror – now they must defend it from new villains and old enemies. That is if they can convince AEGIS, the government agency in charge of superhero regulation, that they deserve the job. But now that the City is ‘safe enough to protect’ Tick and Arthur begin to see they’ve got competition…”
The Tick season two will premiere on Amazon Prime on April 5 and will consist of 10 episodes.
The pilot episode of The Tick premiered in August 2016, with the rest of the series being made available between August 2017 and February 2018.
In 2017, Bastille shared a cover of Green Day’s classic track ‘Basket Case’, which featured on the soundtrack of season one. “We’re massive Green Day fans and so tried to make a version of ‘Basket Case’ that was totally different to the original whilst still honouring what an awesome tune it is,” said Bastille’s Dan Smith.
“We had a lot of fun reinterpreting it with loads of strings and brass, inspired by countless film scores and ‘Eleanor Rigby’. To be able to work on something that combines superheroes, orchestras and Green Day was an absolute pleasure.”
