Amazon orders 52 episodes of Thunderbirds Are Go to debut on its Prime Video service later this year.

Amazon has announced that it has ordered four seasons of new Amazon Original Kids Series Thunderbirds Are Go, of which is expected to debut on Prime Video in the US “later this year.”

As part of a deal with ITV Studios, the series will later arrive in the United Kingdom, Germany and Austria. Though, a specific timeline of when that will happen has yet to be confirmed.

The show, a reinvention of the 50-year-old classic series, will once again catapult the five Tracy brothers back onto television screens around the world. Each season will consist of 13 episodes, it has been said.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with ITV Studios Global Entertainment on a world-renowned property that kids and families today will embrace,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “Our customers will enjoy the same action and adventure found on the classic series infused with a contemporary aesthetic and visually stunning world.”

It will star Rasmus Hardiker (Scott Tracy), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (John Tracy), David Menkin (Virgil Tracy), Kayvan Novak (Brains), and front-runner Rosamund Pike (Lady Penelope) as the world’s most famous family of heroes, International Rescue, who pilot their vehicles from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space, all the whilst performing impossible and daring rescues across the globe.

Produced by ITV Studios Global Entertainment and Pukeko Pictures, Thunderbirds Are Go is part of a collaboration with Weta Workshop. It will use a “unique mixture” of CGI animation and live-action model sets, which pay homage to the series’ roots.

“We are delighted to be working with Amazon to launch Thunderbirds Are Go in the US; their position as an innovative content provider and their passion for the show makes them the perfect partner,” adds ITV Studios’ Dan Gopal.

All four seasons will be available for Amazon Prime members to stream instantly using its Prime Video platform. It will also be made available as part of Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited, an all-you-can-eat subscription service designed for kids and available exclusively on Amazon devices including Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets.

Thunderbirds Are Go will debut on Amazon’s Prime Video service in the United States for Prime subscribers. It will later arrive on Prime Video in the United Kingdom, Germany and Austria. Stay tuned for future updates and developments.
