When Will the New Percy Jackson Series on Disney+ Start?

May 15, 2020

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?
