Percy Jackson Is Getting a Disney+ Series
Making for some much-needed good news, a Percy Jackson series is set to arrive on Disney+.

Rick Riordan — the author of the popular Percy Jackson book series — made the announcement today, posting a video on Twitter alongside his wife Becky.

At this point, though, the project is in its very early stages, with few details about how the series will play out.

"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 1," Riordan said. "Rest assured that Becky and I will be involved in person in every aspect of the show."

So far, both the Lightning Thief (2010) and Sea of Monsters (2013) were adapted into full-length feature films. However, no actors from the films are expected to return for the Disney+ series.

For now, stay tuned.
