Signage posted on Bell Boulevard and 40th Avenue

A superhero comedy series produced by Amazon will use Bayside as its backdrop once again this week.

“The Tick” will film scenes for its second season on April 10. No parking signage has been posted in areas along Bell Boulevard between 38th and 43rd avenues to make way for production trucks. Vehicles must be moved by 8 p.m. on April 9.

Cast and crew for the series filmed scenes at a house on 218th Street and 40th Avenue last April. The series also filmed in Glendale last March.

“The Tick” was originally created as a comic book character in 1986 as a satire of the traditional superhero. It was adapted into an animated series in 1994 and a live-action series in 2001.

Starring Peter Serafinowicz as the title character, Amazon rebooted the series on its streaming service. The first half of the first season premiered last August; the second half was added in February.

Amazon Studios ordered a second season of the series in January. It is slated to premiere in 2019.

The series is set in a world where superheroes have been real for decades. After coming to suspect his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead, an accountant (played by Griffin Newman) teams up with superhero, the Tick, to discover the truth.

Bayside as been the site of multiple film shoots in recent months. The Starz television series “Power” has filmed in the neighborhood on more than one occasion. Crew and cast for “The Americans,” “Homeland” and “Madam Secretary” have also been spotted in the area.
