Amazon canceled The Tick after two seasons according to series creator Ben Edlund.

Edlund wrote on Twitter, “I’m sorry to say Amazon has chosen not to proceed with The Tick TV. I’m not sorry to say I love this show, its cast, its story, and its message. Destiny demands that my compatriots and I now seek a new home for this series.”

Edlund would go on to thank fans who enjoyed and loved the show. He specifically thanked #LunaTicks and the #LunaTickArmy. He also noted, “We want to find a place to make more. That is the mission now and we are on it.”

He spoke to Den of Geek about his plans for a third season:

“I would put forward that we would go forward in time, and we would catch up with them after they’ve been at it for a while. I think that that would allow us to kind of let the last level of like, the coral reef, join the party. And really, at that point, it could really feel like the live action version is embracing the inventiveness that we were able to achieve in the comic book. More fun by a factor of 6.”

Ben Edlund’s call to find a new home for The Tick saw fans rally in order to save the show under #SaveTheTick.

Actor Griffin Newman, who plays Arthur Everest updated fans, “Our show is very much still alive at this moment! We’re all still under contract, and actively trying to find a new place to keep the show going! Fan demand is really what has the power to push us over the edge right now, so please be loud!”

Newman even reached out to Guillermo del Toro to help them in saving the show.

Actor John Hodgman would also weigh in, “This is no fun. Thank you for everything (so far) Ben.”

The Tick writer Susan Hurwitz Arneson championed the show finding a new home.

A number of fans asked Netflix to pick up the show.

Others asked for Amazon Prime to renew the show for a third season.

Others just expressed their support for the show and indicated they wanted to see it continue.

The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick, Griffin Newman as Arthur Everest, Valorie Curry as Dot Everest, Yara Martinez as Ms. Lint, Scott Speiser as Overkill, Brandan Hines as Superian, Alan Tudyk as Dangerboat, and Jackie Earle Haley as The Terror.
