Amazon Orders “Thunderbirds Are Go!” Series

Amazon has today announced today that it will become the U.S. home for the UK animated series “Thunderbirds Are Go” from ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Four seasons of thirteen episodes each have been ordered with the first to debut on Prime Video later this year in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria.

The new series reboots the classic franchise and combines CGI animation and live-action model sets to deliver the story of the five brave Tracy brothers who run International Rescue.

Rosamund Pike is onboard to play Lady Penelope while David Graham will reprise his role as her chauffeur Parker. The series is produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in collaboration with Weta Workshop.
