Hey demigods, we are *finally* getting a Percy Jackson TV series

It’s taken years of asking and campaigning but it’s all paid off. This Friday, Rick Riordan revealed that a Percy Jackson series is officially in development and we are screaming. 

Riordan made the announcement in a video on Twitter alongside his wife, Becky. “After a lot of hard work and a lot of support from you guys, Percy Jackson is coming to Disney+,” he divulged. 

The video announcement was followed up with a statement from the author.

“Hey Percy Jackson fans, for the past decade, you’ve worked hard to champion a faithful on-screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world,” Riordan begins. “Some of you have even suggested it would be a great series for Disney+. We couldn’t agree more!”

Riordan continues: “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 & 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!” he ends.
