'Percy Jackson' Series In The Works at Disney+

Disney+ is working on a Percy Jackson & the Olympians series!

The streaming service is currently in development on a TV show based off of the Percy Jackson book series.

The author of the series, Rick Riordan, and his wife made the announcement on his Twitter account.

“Hey Percy Jackson fans, for the past decade, you’ve worked hard to champion a faithful on-screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world,” he wrote in a statement. “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 higest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with the The Lightning Third 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!” Rick continued. “Buckle up, demigods. It’s going to be a fantastic, exciting ride!”
