Fans of the Percy Jackson book series by author Rick Riordan have eagerly awaited news and images as the new Disney+ Original Series is currently filming.

The new series stars Walker Scobell (Percy Jackson), Leah Sava Jeffries (Annabeth Chase), Aryan Simhadri (Grover Underwood), Virginia Kull (Sally Jackson), as well as a variety of supporting cast members including Jason Mantzoukas, Dior Goodjohn, Glynn Turman, Charlie Bushnell, Timm Sharp, Olivea Morton, and more.

The live-action series tells the fantastical story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. Now Percy must trek across America to find it and restore order to Olympus.


Riordan and Jon Steinberg will serve as writers of the pilot, and James Bobin will direct. Steinberg will oversee the series with his producing partner Dan Shotz. Steinberg and Shotz serve as executive producers alongside Bobin, Riordan, Rebecca Riordan, Bert Salke, Monica Owusu-Breen, Jim Rowe, Anders Engström, Jet Wilkinson and The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell and D.J. Goldberg.

Currently, the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is slated to premiere on Disney+ in 2024, but an official release date has yet to be announced. Are you excited about the new series?
