With the very fun superhero show The Tick Season 2 now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, the cast and creators were on hand at this year’s WonderCon to talk about what fans can look forward to in the new episodes. Shortly after doing their panel in front of a room full of fans, creator Ben Edlund, Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman, Valorie Curry, Scott Speiser, Brendan Hines, and executive producer Barry Josephson stopped by the Collider studio for a fun interview. As you might expect when trying to talk to seven people who are all friends, the conversation was very loose and led to a lot of laughs.
During the interview they talked about the arc of Season 2 and what they wanted to accomplish, what they learned making the first season that they applied to Season 2, the Arthur and Dangerboat relationship, The Tick’s new costume, what the public really thinks about their costumes when filming in New York City, and more.
Check out what they had to say in the player above and below is everything we talked about.

Here’s Amazon’s tease for what’s to come in Season 2:
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…
And here’s the official synopsis for The Tick:
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, 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. They launch into an adventure brimming with crazed archvillains, blood-soaked vigilantes, and superhuman freakery.
