‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ Heads to Amazon

The Tracy brothers are coming to the United States.

Amazon announced this morning that it has ordered four 13-episode seasons of “Thunderbirds Are Go” to debut later this year on Prime Video.

Premiering last year in the United Kingdom, the revival of the classic sci-fi series combines CG animation with miniature effects to chronicle the exploits of the five brave Tracy brothers, who form the world-famous life-saving organization International Rescue.

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

“Thunderbirds Are Go!” stars Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”) as Lady Penelope, Thomas Brodie-Sangster (“Love Actually,” “Game of Thrones”) as Gordon Tracy and John Tracy, Rasmus Hardiker as Alan Tracy and Scott Tracy, David Menkin as Virgil Tracy, Sandra Dickinson as Grandma Tracy, Kayvan Novak (“Four Lions”) as mechanical genius Brains, Andres Williams as the villainous Hood, and David Graham reprising his role as manservant/IR agent Parker.
