Season 3 Announcement

21st March 2018

Thunderbirds Are Go lands back on our screens, with Season 3, Part 1 launching on CITV and ITV Saturday, March 31st at 8.30am. This season is more action-packed than ever!

To celebrate the launch of Thunderbirds Are Go Season 3, we’ve teamed up with the awesome illustrator Paul Shipper, whose recent work includes ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ and ‘Ready Player One’, to create something truly F.A.B.

Season 3 introduces two brand new characters: a villainous coalition, The Chaos Crew – 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.

Throughout 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.

Joining our already incredibly talented returning cast of Rasmus Hardiker, David Menkin, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kayvan Novak, Rosamund Pike and David Graham, we have another stellar guest cast line up in store!
