"Thunderbirds Are Go" (Season 3) Debuts on April 21
On Friday, April 21, the third season of Amazon Original Kids Series Thunderbirds Are Go is set to premiere on Prime Video in the US.
When disaster strikes, International Rescue answers the call! From their hidden island base in the South Pacific, the five Tracy brothers pilot remarkable, cutting-edge Thunderbird vehicles from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space - all for one purpose: to help others in need. Scott, Gordon, Virgil, John, and Alan Tracy are supported by mechanical genius Brains, cover operative Kayo, their jet-setting London agent Lady Penelope, and her loyal driver Parker. In this upcoming season, International Rescue faces their toughest challenge yet - The Mechanic, who uses his "mecha machines" to create chaos. Produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in collaboration with world-famous Weta Workshop, the series features a unique mix of CGI animation combined with live-action model sets. Thunderbirds Are Go delivers an exciting new level of action-adventure animation for today's audience while paying tribute to the characters and locations from the beloved original Thunderbirds series.
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); Thunderbirds Are Go is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Below are what customers have said about the second season on Thunderbirds Are Go:
· "My kids love this series and we're so excited when season 2 came out. It did not disappoint. It keeps my 4 year old and my 9 year old entertained which is so rare to have a show that they both enjoy. It's great having something they can watch together and I don't have to worry about it being something they shouldn't watch."
· "This is my two sons' favorite show ever!"
· "Great science and technology information wrapped up in suspenseful adventure for kids and adults alike with a splash of pure, sweet humor."
· "We all love it from the 6 year old, to the 13 year old to the parents!"
· "A show that is an adrenaline rush for both children and parents alike with noble values of selflessness and sacrifice to rescue others and without any bad language."
