ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures have been commissioned by CITV to make a third series (26 x 30’) of Thunderbirds Are Go, the smash hit reinvention of the iconic children’s television show, to air next year.
Thunderbirds Are Go has also been acquired by Canada’s DHX Media in a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) and will premiere on its Family CHRGD and Family Channels later this month. In the US, the series will debut exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video on 22nd April, with a sneak preview of the one-hour special, Ring of Fire parts 1 and 2 available on 15th April, while it will subsequently air on the service in the UK, Germany and Austria later this year.
ITVS GE has already sold Thunderbirds Are Go to more than 40 countries worldwide.
Of all the named outlets, only Amazon has the best deal. They not only show it, they make money on each piece of merchandise sold on their site by anybody.
