The original “Thunderbirds” television show, which aired from 1964 to 1966, astounded viewers across the world with its use of miniatures and iconic puppets in order to create a thrilling television series for children and adults alike. Over 50 years since the show’s original airing, the Thunderbirds are coming back to television with “Thunderbirds are Go!”, thanks to ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures!
This new series will span 52 episodes across two seasons, and continue to follow the Tracy family and their rescue exploits.



In the newest teaser released earlier this February, fans got their first look at the scenery of the new Thunderbirds series, compliments of special effects and model team WETA Workshop, who are best known for their work on the Lord of the Rings franchise. The trailer shows off the new animation style used in “Thunderbirds are Go!”, which is a combination of CGI and classic miniature models. The trailer shows off iconic vistas, like Tracy Island’s various rooms and hangars. The new Thunderbirds series is set to begin airing on April 15th, with more news to come as we get closer to release.
