The CW has unveiled its first-ever series for fans in the cult comedy genre: The Tick.
The Tick, the first series to premiere on The CW since the series returned from hiatus in March 2017, stars Stephen Merchant as the titular Tick, a young surgeon who has a crush on his wife.
But he soon learns that his wife is also a serial killer and he needs to help her in her plan to escape prison.
It’s an unlikely pairing and the series is a smart, funny and ambitious take on the genre, which is still a genre beloved by the CW.
The first episode is titled The Tick and it was first shown on the network’s sister network, CW Seed, which also aired the first season of the show.
The Tick is a dark comedy set in the mid-20th century.
The Tick is one of the few series on TV that are completely fictional, with characters portrayed in real life who have no relation to the characters in the show’s fictional universe.
The show is not a reboot of the classic series The Twilight Zone, as that franchise had been cancelled by NBC in the 1970s.
“The Tick has been a long-time favourite of mine,” said showrunner Andrew Kreisberg, a writer-producer on the series.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring it to the CW.”
The Tick begins its first season with an unexpected guest appearance from Sarah Michelle Gellar, who plays a scientist who is trying to figure out how to cure her wife’s illness.
The two become best friends, and the two share a shared obsession with their obsession with the tick, which turns out to be a deadly threat.
According to the showrunners, the characters’ first encounter with the Tick will be a major turning point in their relationship.
“They’ll see each other for the first time and they’ll see that they can trust each other,” said Kreisberger.
“It’s a really big moment for them.
The stakes are high.
There’s a huge emotional arc that’s happening in the first episode.”
The showrunners also confirmed that there will be no crossover with other CW shows, which Kreisber said has been one of their favorite parts of the CW universe.
“It’s such a great universe,” Kreisberry said.
“The Tick isn’t just a comic book show.
We have a big universe of television shows and we have a huge universe of movies and TV shows.
I think the CW’s been really smart about trying to diversify.
I hope we’ll be able.
We’ve got a lot of shows coming up, and I think we’ve just been really lucky in terms of the breadth of the universe.”
The show will premiere on March 23 at 9 p.m.
ET on The Hub.
The CW also revealed it will air a full slate of shows that fall on Thursday nights starting with The Flash.
The first episode will premiere at 8 p.x on The Flash, followed by Supergirl, Supernatural, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, The Flash and Supergirl.
In addition, the CW also confirmed a pilot for a new comedy series called The Bachelorette.
All five shows will be available to stream on The BTVA streaming platform starting April 1.
