I can’t believe I am even writing this, but a new Percy Jackson television series is being created for Disney+! Rick Riordan posted the following on Twitter:

“Hey, Percy Jackson fans. For the past decade, you’ve worked hard to champion a faithful on-screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world. Some of you have even suggested it would be a great series for Disney+. We couldn’t agree more! We can’t say much more at this stage but we are very excited about the idea of a live-action series of the highest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one. Rest assured that Becky and I will be involved in-person in every aspect of the show. There will be much more news in the future, but for now, we have a lot of work to do! Buckle up, demigods! It’s going to be a fantastic, exciting ride!”

Given the recent production issues for pretty much EVERYTHING because of the pandemic, I am sure this won’t be starting anytime soon. But a LOT could be done behind the scenes before filming actually begins.

Who would you like to see cast as Percy and his friends? Which storylines are you most excited about?


Performances of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical will be running September 20 through January 5 at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway. This is a 16-week limited run.

Chris McCarrell will continue in his Off-Broadway and U.S. tour cast role as Percy Jackson. Other returning cast members from both include Kristin Stokes as Annabeth Chase, James Hayden Rodriguez as Luke, Ares, and others, and Sarah Beth Pfeifer as Mrs. Dodds, Clarisse, and others. Continuing from the U.S. tour cast will be Jorrel Javier, Jalynn Steele, and Ryan Knowles.

It’s terrific to see the see the show go on after getting great critical reviews!

I haven’t seen a commercial for the Broadway show yet, but the one below is from the U.S. tour, which is very similar.
