Warburton will slip into the blue costume again as he's set to reprise his role on the new live-action series based on the 2001 show.
Patrick Warburton is "The Tick" again. Amazon is reviving the 2001 superhero parody with the actor attached to the project, a source tells PEOPLE. He is going to reprise his role as the titular character on the new live-action series.
Ben Edlund, who created a comic book on which the show was based, will write and produce the new iteration. Other details about the project are still not available as Amazon has not commented on the news.
"The Tick" was originally brought to the small screen as an animated series that ran 3 seasons from 1994 to 1996. The 2001 live-action version starring Warburton, Nestor Carbonell, Liz Vassey and David Burke received critical acclaims, but it only lasted for nine episodes of FOX.
