The New Zealand company remaking the children's series Thunderbirds Are Go has announced a second season will be produced.
The puppetry show about the fictional International Rescue, run by the Tracey family, was originally broadcast in 1965
ITV Studios is working with Wellington-based Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop to make 26 episodes, which will play on TVNZ and in Australia on the Nine Network next year.
Now a further 26 episodes for a second season will be made for airplay in 2016.
Pukeko Pictures chief executive Andrew Smith said they were looking forward to bringing even more episodes of the five Tracey brothers to television screens.
"It's a huge, huge production. Obviously not quite in the scale of something like The Hobbit but for a children's television show, it's probably the most complicated children's television show that's being made in the world today."
