Series 17 AU debut and 'No More Mr. Nice Engine' due

Season 17 has been confirmed for its Australian premiere next week by ABC Television.

The latest season is to head Down Under every day of the week in a changed running order, with Steamie Stafford becoming the premiere episode on ABC2 on October 9th.

Following the aforementioned is Gordon Runs Dry, The Lost Puff, Kevin's Cranky Friend, Scruff's Makeover, Too Many Fire Engines, Calm Down Caitlin and Wayward Winston.
The series will break away from the 20 episode format to 26, with No More Mr. Nice Engine finally confirmed as an episode, which is to receive its own tie-in book in 2014.

Coming as the ninth story in Australia, Hiro will serve as the lead character alongside Diesel in a supporting role.

The summary reads; Hiro is one of the strongest engines on Sodor. He is also very polite and gentle. Diesel tells Hiro that the only way to get the trucks to do what you want is to give them a biff and a bash, but Hiro is not convinced.

Series 17 of Thomas & Friends marks its Australian premiere on October 9th on ABC2 at 8am, with the episode Steamie Stafford.

Thanks to Thomas Stansfield for the alert.
