Thomas and Friends (or also known as Thomas the Tank Engine) is a well-known series for British-American children that has been operating since 1984.
The series follows the adventure of Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends on the island of Sodor. It features popular characters such as The Fat Controller, Gordon, Cranky, Edward, Annie and Clarabel. Mark Moraghan currently narrates the show.
Netflix USA The USA, the United Kingdom, Canada, most of Europe and Asia will have access to the new seasons of Thomas & Friends.
Until 2017, PBS had exclusive rights to the program until Nickelodeon took over. Now, it is Netflix's turn to wear the Thomas & Friends brand.
To compete with the new services and the fact that it is losing Dreamworks TV productions in the future, Netflix is investing heavily so as not to lose ground in the face of Disney + tastes, where children's content is their daily bread. Through a series of acquisitions and production offers (such as the recent one with Nickelodeon), it is in good shape to stay relevant in the world of children's television.
