Thunderbirds Are Go

Story by Jack Foley

THE hotly anticipated, iconic British TV series Thunderbirds Are Go arrives back on UK TV screens, with Season 3, Part 1 airing in March.

Starring Rasmus Harkiker, David Menkin, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kayvan Novak, Rosamund Pike and David Graham, this season promises more family favourite rescue efforts from the Tracy Family.

Produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in association with Weta Workshop, this season will introduce two brand new characters: a villainous coalition, The Chaos Crew, led by Havoc (a master thief and
pilot) and Fuse (a hulking demolition expert).

They bring an array of exciting destructive skills, weapons and vehicles including Spoiler (Havoc’s car), Basher (Fuse’s ATV) and their combined aerial jet known as The Chaos Cruiser.

Also joining the star-studded cast is multiple award-winning actress Ruth Jones, playing an unflappable rig driver on a treacherous mountain road and Ben Bailey Smith as Jensen Hunt.

This series, International Rescue has their hands full: The Tracys and their Thunderbirds must go above
and beyond to tackle new threats while continuing to rescue those in need.

An undersea mission for Thunderbird 2, the return of Maximum MAX (and several other MAXes for that matter), the unrelenting heat of planet Mercury and a rapidly growing giant geranium are just a taste of what’s in store.

Luckily, our heroes find help along the way: from a game master within his futuristic virtual realm, a rig driver facing perilous conditions, and a pompous race car driver just to name a few.

The GDF also steps in to help with their own rescue operation machinations (known as “R.O.BOTS”), but they soon prove to be more trouble than they’re worth.

All the while, through every adventure, a grand and ultimate mission begins to take shape… One that will require the combined assembly of every Thunderbird, not to mention the aid of International Rescue’s old “friend” – the Mechanic.

This mission, once attempted, would leave Tracy Island vulnerable to a devastating attack, but it may also end in the Tracys’ biggest and most personal rescue yet.
