The exciting moment has arrived! The world of Percy Jackson is getting bigger. They’re working on a new TV show based on Percy Jackson’s adventures called “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”. The author, Rick Riordan, is leading the way in making this happen.
Before, they made two movies from the books: “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” and “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”. But lots of people, including Rick himself, didn’t really like how the stories were shown in those movies.
Since then, fans of the stories have been asking for a better adaptation of the books. And now, it looks like their wish is finally coming true!

Just recently, on August 18, 2023, they put out the second short preview of the series. The words “The gods are waiting.” show up on the screen as Percy goes down in a magical elevator at the start of the preview.
Supporters had a little look at the initial preview on September 10, 2022, during Disney’s D23 Expo. Percy was the one telling the story in that clip, and it showed him entering Camp Half-Blood.
What is Percy Jackson about?
The Percy Jackson series takes ancient Greek myths and gives them a modern twist.

In the first season, which is based on the book “The Lightning Thief,” Percy is trying to understand his special abilities. This story sets the stage for his journey of self-discovery and adventure.
