A globally recognized show, the program airs in 200 territories in more than 12 languages. Its broad appeal has made it a Canadian staple, according to its series creator Mark Miller.

"The momentum of this series is beyond anyone's imagination," Miller, Thunderbird’s president, said in a statement. "These are authentic heroes; people who fans connect with."

Miller confirmed that Season 9’s 18-episode order is the largest in the show’s history. "To get an order for a new season, before the current season has even aired, is a testament to the quality of this series."

The eighth season of ‘Highway Thru Hell’ will premiere on October 7 at 10PM EST/7PM PST on Discovery.

Thunderbird will host a Facebook Live event during the premiere along with its production partners.

The Vancouver-based global multi-platform entertainment company creates award-winning scripted, unscripted and animated programming for the world's leading digital platforms, as well as Canadian and international broadcasters.

Shares of Thunderbird shot up 4.7% in Toronto at C$1.34.
