ITV has today announced that star of the Six Million Dollar man Lee Majors will take on the role of Jeff Tracy, the father of the five Tracy brothers and founder of International Rescue. Although Jeff Tracy was a central character in the original Thunderbirds series from the 1960s, he has not yet appeared in the next-generation revival Thunderbirds Are Go, and has been missing - presumed dead - since the series began. Never seen before by audiences but often discussed amongst his sons, this first footage of Jeff Tracy is not to be missed!
Iconic actor Lee Majors will voice the legendary character, with his first appearance in the upcoming episodes that will launch on ITV and CITV every Saturday from 18th May. Fans will be eager to discover whether Jeff may still be alive, and whether he will be reunited with his family on Tracy Island.
In these all-new epic episodes, the Tracys and their Thunderbirds must go above and beyond to tackle new threats while continuing to rescue those in need. When a mysterious distress signal reaches International Rescue, the whole team must pull together to discover who is behind it. With The Hood and his Chaos Crew continuing to leave destruction in their wake, even managing to commandeer a Thunderbird, the Tracy brothers really have their hands full.
