Amazon Orders FOUR Seasons Of Thunderbirds Are Go!

Post title correction: I’d change the title itself but the link has already gone out. This is an order of the already-planned two TV seasons of the series. Amazon will air them as thirteen-episode “seasons.” Each TV season is twenty-six episodes. So this is — not yet at least — any extension of what had already been planned for the series.

Amazon Orders Original Kids Series Thunderbirds Are Go

Amazon today announced it has ordered four 13-episode seasons of new Amazon Original Kids Series Thunderbirds Are Go to debut on Prime Video in the US. Thunderbirds Are Go is a reinvention of the 50-year-old classic Thunderbirds, and features the world’s most famous family of heroes, International Rescue, and Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope. The first season is scheduled to debut on Prime Video in the US later this year and will subsequently air on Prime Video in the UK, Germany and Austria, following a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Well, they made it an easy decision for Amazon, didn’t they?

That’s The Hood on the left, Bezos on the right. If you couldn’t tell.

This is a really sweet deal for Amazon. Think! Not only do they get to show the series, they get a cut of every piece of Thunderbirds merch sold on their site by any vendor!

Well, congratulations to ITV and the production team. Now improve the damn scripts and also tone down the horns!
