TVLine is reporting that “Thunderbirds Are Go!” will be released on Amazon Prime starting April 15.

Variety is reporting that Amazon has ordered four seasons of “Thunderbirds Are Go”, but they do not mean new seasons. They will split the first season into two 13 episodes seasons and will do the same with the second season. The second season is set to air on ITV later this year. This will however be the first time the show is available on a streaming service.

Thunderbirds are a go at Amazon Studios, which is bringing the 1960s British sci-fi teen heroes to the digital screen.

Amazon has ordered four 13-episode seasons of “Thunderbirds Are Go” from ITV Studios Global Entertainment, under a pact that includes exclusive U.S. rights. The show features the five Tracy brothers of the International Rescue squad, who go on missions spanning the globe and into outer space. The series stars Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl,” “The World’s End”), who voices agent Lady Penelope.

The first 13 episodes of the show are scheduled to debut on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. later in 2016, followed by the U.K., Germany and Austria. “Thunderbirds Are Go,” produced by ITV Studios and New Zealand-based Pukeko Pictures in collaboration with Weta Workshop, uses a mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets. The producers say the reboot pays tribute to “the legacy of model locations” from the original series, which used marionette figures.

The original “Thunderbirds,” created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, was first broadcast on ITV in 1965 and featured the the catchphrase “Thunderbirds are go!” Last year a 26-episode first season of “Thunderbirds Are Go” aired on ITV and CITV in Britain and Australia’s Nine Network, as well as in New Zealand, Canada and the Netherlands. ITV’s CITV children’s network is slated to air a second 26-episode run of “Thunderbirds Are Go” starting in late 2016. Amazon is splitting the show into four seasons of 13 segments each.

“Thunderbirds Are Go” is exec produced by Estelle Hughes (“Driver Dan’s Story Train”), Giles Ridge (“Pocoyo”), Richard Taylor (“The Lord of the Rings”) and Andrew Smith (“District 9”). The series is written by Rob Hoegee (“Generator Rex,” “Teen Titans)” and directed by David Scott (“Lego Star Wars”) and Theo Baynton (“The Wotwots”).

Voice cast of “Thunderbirds Are Go” includes David Graham, who reprises his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker. Inventor Brains is voiced by Kayvan Novak (“Facejacker”); Tracy brothers Alan is played by Rasmus Hardiker (“Lead Balloon”); Tracy brother John is played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (“Game of Thrones”).

The series is distributed internationally by ITV Studios, a unit of U.K. broadcaster ITV. “Thunderbirds Are Go” has been sold to more than 40 countries worldwide, with Australia’s public broadcaster ABC the latest to acquire the series.

After contemplating for a long time on how I wanted to include Rosamund’s voice work on “Thunderbirds Are Go!” on this site I’ve finally decided to upload a small amount of screen captures from the episodes Lady Penelope was in. I will soon add some videos from the show to our video archive. Enjoy!

When the all-new Thunderbirds Are Go gets underway this Saturday (ITV, 5pm), fans of the original 1960s series will be delighted to see many of their favourite characters again working to avert disasters for International Rescue. One of them, British aristocrat Lady Penelope Creighton Ward, is now voiced by British actress Rosamund Pike

“I’m trying to make her a modern girl who is very much a fun-loving, intelligent, party girl,” says Rosamund who was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year for her lead role in Hollywood blockbuster Gone Girl.

“Lady Penelope is the daughter of Lord Creighton Ward, a political figure who obviously has important standing in society. She seems to the outside world to be a flighty ‘It Girl’ but she is far from it. The more she is of the here and now, the free-er she is to go anywhere and infiltrate whatever scene she needs in order to help International Rescue.

“Her power to disarm people is essential. She has a good sense of humour, she is strong and canny and she enjoys living on the dangerous side of life. Though, of course, she also enjoys a nice cup of tea!”

Of course it wouldn’t be Lady Penelope without her trusty chauffeur Parker, who is voiced again by David Graham, the original actor from the 1960s series, who’s now 89.

‘She has a great ally in Parker, her driver and bodyguard,” explains Rosamund. “Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. We’re all eagerly anticipating our next stint in the recording studio!”

There’s another link with the 1960s for Rosemund in an episode later in the series. Sylvia Anderson, who voiced the original puppet version of Lady Penelope, will voicing Lady Penelope’s Great Aunt Sylvia…

“The day Sylvia Anderson came into play Great Aunt Sylvia was so exciting,” Rosamund says of the wife of Gerry Anderson, who created Thunderbirds. “I think we both gave our versions of “Home Parker” just for fun! She and David Graham have wonderful stories about the early days of recording and how they battled with un-sound proofed studios. They didn’t even have a studio as far as I recall, I think they were using an old hotel or factory!”

Rosamund Pike has said she feels privileged to be voicing Lady Penelope in a new version of Thunderbirds because she was such a fan as a child.

The World’s End star is taking on the role for upcoming TV series Thunderbirds Are Go!, a reboot of the original, due to air from 2015.

She said it was another great role to tick off her list: “It’s such a treat. I watched Thunderbirds as a child and to get to play someone as iconic as Lady Penelope, I’ve played a Bond girl and now I’m getting to play Lady Penelope. I feel really very lucky.”

Rosamund added of her co-stars: “There are some of the boys who are playing the Tracy brothers who grew up and cannot believe that they’re playing Scott or Alan Tracy now. You couldn’t have told their 13-year-old selves that that was going to be the case.”

She is also about to star as the lead character in the film adaptation of Gone Girl, a dark thriller about a missing woman, and said the Thunderbirds role would offer her young son the chance to see some of her work.

She explained: “Yes, of course I want to do something that my son can enjoy, because he’s certainly not going to be able to watch Gone Girl.”

Rosamund can next be seen in comedy Hector and the Search for Happiness opposite Simon Pegg, due to be released in cinemas on August 15.
