Destiny's on the line — and "The Tick" is ready to accept the charges.

Amazon unveiled the first full-length trailer for its new series about the cult fave comic book character. Peter Serafinowicz plays the blue-suited titular character, who solves crimes with the help of somewhat hapless sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman).

The tongue-in-cheek tone and dry humor is reminiscent of Fox's short-lived 2001 live-action series, which starred Patrick Warburton as the Tick. "Murder ... it's just not cool," Serafinowicz deadpans in the trailer.

Here's the official synopsis of the show:

In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero.

Season 1 of "The Tick" will be released in two parts on Amazon. The first six episodes begin streaming August 25, while part 2 will be available in 2018.
