Actor 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.

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.

The Tick first appeared onscreen for three seasons in a 1990s animated children's series.
