Summary and basic plot

Thunderbirds Are Go! is a remake of the popular 1960s TV series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. A collaborative effort between British ITV Studios and New Zealand Pukeki Pictures, the sci-fi series is set in 2060 and features the exploits of International Rescue — a fictional organization dedicated to saving human lives. Thunderbirds Are Go! series 1 premiered on ITV in April 2015 and series 2 debuted on October 22, 2016. The show is executive produced by Estelle Hughes, Giles Ridge, Richard Taylor and Andrew Smith.

The International Rescue mission is led by a fleet of five highly technologically advanced machines named Thunderbirds which launch from the organization’s secret base in the Pacific Ocean. The Tracy brothers, Scott, John, Virgil, Gordon and Alan are the central characters who pilot the Thunderbird vehicles. Sons of former astronaut and founder of International Rescue Jeff Tracy, the brothers come to the rescue when conventional techniques have been exhausted or have proved ineffective.

Ratings, reviews and renewal information

Fans and critics have embraced Thunderbirds Are Go! despite some initial negative reactions from fans of the original version. The series gained traction when the network decided to move it into a morning rather than afternoon time slot, drawing a consolidated audience of almost three million viewers. With a BAFTA Kids Vote nomination and scores of 7.3 on tv.com and 6.8/10 on IMDb, it was hardly a surprise that ITV decided to renew the series. Series 2 is as popular as the premiere installment, and while no news of a third chapter have been released yet, we think that it may very well be on the way.
