Patrick Warburton is reportedly set to reprise his role as parody superhero The Tick in a new show.
The Ted star played the comical character in a live-action TV series in 2001, but the show was cancelled in 2002 after just nine episodes. The series also starred David Burke, Nestor Carbonell and Liz Vassey.
Executives at Amazon are now looking to revive the show, which is based on a comic book by Ben Edlund, with Warburton in the lead and Edlund producing and writing, according to People.com.
Edlund even confirmed that the revival is in the works via Twitter:
Yes for now suffice it to say the dream of a new live-action Tick is being pursued with vigor #bringbackTheTick

The Tick first appeared onscreen for three seasons in a 1990s animated children’s series.
The news follows reports of a Full House revival that is also in the works.
