Production

This series will go back to the original storytelling format from Series 1 - 21. As a result, the Steam Team Idea will be together, Thomas will go travelling around the world and be on Sodor sometimes and Mark Moraghan becomes the narrator again. The show went onto a hiatus due to Mattel realising something wrong with the Thomas and Friends Brand after transitioning from CGI Animation to 2D Animation. Because of that, Mattel has to sell off the Thomas and Friends Brand to Universal.

With the the Steam Team coming back. Edward and Henry move back to Tidmouth Sheds, even though Edward sleeps at Wellsworth. For the record, the main cast will be together. Rebecca is the only female engine to stay in the main cast and the main cast consists of Thomas, Edward, Henry, Gordon, James, Percy, Toby, Emily, Nia, Rebecca, Sonny, Annie, Clarabel and Sir Topham Hatt.
