When disaster strikes, International Rescue answers the call! From their hidden island base in the South Pacific, the five Tracy brothers pilot remarkable, cutting-edge Thunderbird vehicles from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space – all for one purpose: to help others in need. Scott, Gordon, Virgil, John, and Alan Tracy are supported by mechanical genius Brains, cover operative Kayo, their jet-setting London agent Lady Penelope, and her loyal driver Parker. In this upcoming season, International Rescue faces their toughest challenge yet – The Mechanic, who uses his “mecha machines” to create chaos. Produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in collaboration with world-famous Weta Workshop, the series features a unique mix of CGI animation combined with live-action model sets. Thunderbirds Are Go delivers an exciting new level of action-adventure animation for today’s audience while paying tribute to the characters and locations from the beloved original Thunderbirds series.
