Thunderbirds Are Go will be back on CITV later this year with more new episodes.
CITV’s reinvention of the classic children’s show launched last April.
26 thirty-minute episodes will air in 2016 and 2017.
Steve Green, EVP, Kids’ Content and Distribution at ITV Studios Global Entertainment, commented on the commission: “The unique mix of CGI animation and incredible model sets gives each episode of Thunderbirds Are Go a theatrical feel rarely seen in children’s TV that has generated huge interest globally. Having 52 episodes of this quality takes our discussions to a new level.”
Jamila Metran, Head of Programming for CITV, added: “I am delighted to confirm that a second series of Thunderbirds Are Go has been commissioned for CITV.
