Fun Trailer for Thunderbirds Are Go Season 2, Which Premieres this Week

First of all, if you haven’t watched the first season of Thunderbirds Are Go on Amazon Prime yet, you’re missing out on a fun series. I was very apprehensive about watching it myself and wasn’t really expecting much from it, but once I started watching I was sold. I really enjoy what this series offers, and Amazon has released the first trailer for season two.

In season two, 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.

It looks like we have an exciting new season ahead of us full of action, adventure, and cheesy humor. Thunderbirds Are Go is set to be released on Amazon on November 4th!
