Amazon Debuts Season Two of Original Kids Series "Thunderbirds Are Go" on November 4 on Prime Video
On Friday, November 4, the second season of Amazon Original Kids Series Thunderbirds Are Go is set to premiere on Prime Video in the US.
Thunderbirds Are Go is a reinvention of classic Thunderbirds, and features the world's most famous family of heroes, International Rescue. The series highlights the five brave Tracy brothers and their covert operative Kayo and how they pilot their remarkable, cutting-edge Thunderbird vehicles to perform near-impossible rescue mission, from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space. Season two will continue with International Rescue as everyday heroes pulling off more harrowing rescue adventures, while Kayo's connection to arch nemesis The Hood is revealed. Produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in collaboration with world-famous Weta Workshop, the series is made using a unique mixture of CGI animation and live-action model sets. Thunderbirds Are Go delivers a new level of action-adventure animation for today's audience while paying tribute to the characters and locations from the original series.
Thunderbirds Are Go is executive produced by Estelle Hughes (Driver Dan's Story Train), Giles Ridge (Pocoyo), Richard Taylor (The Lord of the Rings), and Andrew Smith (District 9), written by Rob Hoegee (Generator Rex, Teen Titans), and directed by David Scott (LEGO Star Wars) and Theo Baynton (The Wotwots). It is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Below are what customers have said about Thunderbirds Are Go:
· "My 6 he old son loved this, and thought it was awesome. He loved the gadgets and the machines. I liked the absence of appreciable violence, and I liked the teamwork among the brothers and their associates."
· "A great kid's show packed with action and heroes generally trying to help those in need (as opposed to the violent battles with villains found in many kids shows)."
· "My kids love this show, all of the different "rockets" and the underground lair, etc. they enjoy the storylines and the sense of adventure. I'm constantly hearing "FAB" and the count down. We didn't realize it was a remake, until I looked it up, after my kids raved over the show."
