So, we're back to where we started? Knowing that we are going to have to wait 5-6 months before the remainder of Season 3 can be finished feels slightly inconvenient since we only just got back to this Season.
Furthermore, it has been revealed that Lee Majors has expressed interest in voicing Jeff again if the Studio decides to do a 4th Season.
Now, when a man who is voicing a character that has been a pivotal part of the show, even though he has been absent for the first 2 Seasons, speaks volumes.
That, and ITV Studios only just got the new Toy deal with Bandai, which will feel like a wasted effort since they just acquired this new deal only to have it short-lived if the speculation comes to pass that Season 3 will be the last.
Now, on one hand you can make the argument that I am saying that out of bias because of my love of the show. You would be right in that regard. But, the flip-side is that this show is popular not only with the adults and the kids who grew up with the original re-runs in the 1990s, but this Generation of Children absolutely adore this show and now they have heroes that they can look up to.
The likes of Scott & Virgil Tracy were heroes to children in the 60s, 90's and 2000's because of how they were written.
So, it's very rewarding to know that these characters are looked up to by this Generation.
There are some things that were built to last. Thunderbirds is one of them. I don't think Gerry Anderson had any idea of the longevity of this Franchise when he originally aired the first series in 1965.
Let's just hope that this isn't the show's last hurrah.
