Season 17 to go on mid-season hiatus in UK this June

The latest series of Thomas & Friends, currently airing on Channel 5 milkshake! in the UK, will go on hiatus later this month.

The first week of new episodes started broadcasting on the channel on June 3rd, with another five due to follow next week.

However, digiguide and Freeview have both revealed in their schedules that Week 3 will be part of a repeats season. From the 17th, Kevin's Cranky Friend and its nine successors will air again for catch-up.

It is estimated that the rest of the season will coincide before or during the launch of King of the Railway's cinematic run. It has not been clarified as to why the break will occur.

The brand new seventeenth series of Thomas & Friends airs weekdays on Channel 5 milkshake! in the UK at 7:35am.

  1. Well if that were the case, then that's a good thing since it won't spoil the rest of the remaining characters to appear and I'm sure they'll air the rest of the episodes after the release of King of the Railway (unlike Seasons 15-16), I'm sure to save up the rest of Season 17 for the scheduled broadcast in Fall.
