Amazon has canceled the superhero comedy “The Tick” after two seasons, creator Ben Edlund announced on Twitter Thursday.

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

The 10-episode second season of the series starring Peter Serafinowicz and Griffin Newman debuted on the streaming service last month. When no Season 3 renewal was announced following the release, fans began to rally on social media to save the show.

Ultimately, their efforts were unsuccessful, but Edlund said he and the show’s producers were seeking a new home for the series, which was a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios.

“Meanwhile thank u from my heart’s bottom to all the fans who’ve shared their love with us and the show,” he wrote. “Thank you sweet #LunaTicks and #LunaTickArmy for your militant affection ๐Ÿ™‚ We want to find a place to make more. That is the mission now and we are on it.”

Edlund was creator and executive producer on the “The Tick” series, which was based on his comic book of the same name. Newman starred as Arthur, an accountant with mental health issues and zero powers who falls in league with a strange blue superhero — The Tick, played by Serafinowicz. Barry Josephson and Barry Sonnenfeld served as executive producers, with Kit Boss as co-EP.
