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 decades-old Thunderbirds, and features the world's most famous family of heroes, International Rescue. Thunderbirds Are Go catapults the five brave Tracy brothers back onto television screens, where they'll pilot their vehicles from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space, performing impossible rescues across the globe. 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.

Rosamund Pike will play Lady Penelope.

"We're thrilled to be collaborating with ITV Studios Global Entertainment on a world-renowned property that kids and families today will embrace," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "Our customers will enjoy the same action and adventure found on the classic series infused with a contemporary aesthetic and visually stunning world."

"We are delighted to be working with Amazon to launch Thunderbirds Are Go in the US; their position as an innovative content provider and their passion for the show makes them the perfect partner," added Dan Gopal, EVP EMEA Distribution and Global Digital Partners for ITV Studios Global Entertainment. "Our strategy is to give audiences the flexibility to watch our content any time, any place, and the launch of Thunderbirds Are Go on Amazon Prime Video means children and families across the US, as well as in the UK, Germany and Austria, will be able to watch the entire series whenever and wherever they want."
