Plot Synopsis

Based on the iconic 1960s classic children's adventure series created by Gerry Anderson & Sylvia Anderson, THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO follows the International Rescue, which answers the call whenever disaster strikes. 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. Amazon released the first season of this series in the United States on April 22, 2016. Season 2 of THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO made its debut in the United States on Friday, November 4, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT when Amazon released the 10-episode second season. In Season 2, the everyday heroes at International Rescue continue to work together to perform harrowing rescue missions across the globe. The Tracy brothers and covert ops specialist Kayo pilot their state-of-the-art Thunderbird vehicles to every corner of the world and beyond to defend people in need and fend off their arch nemesis, The Hood.

Amazon released the 13-episode fourth season of THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO in the United States on Friday, February 23, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
