Percy Jackson & The Olympians brings to life Rick Riordan’s beloved books on the small screen with a level of detail and faithfulness to the source material that fans have been eagerly awaiting. The show follows the story of Percy Jackson, a teenager who discovers he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon, which makes him a half-blood – half human, half deity. The first season is set to adapt “The Lightning Thief,” the first book in Riordan’s series, and will delve into Percy’s discovery of his divine heritage and the hidden world of Greek mythology that exists within our own.

Walker Scobell is set to star as Percy Jackson, with Leah Jeffries as Annabeth Chase and Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood. The show’s cast also includes Virginia Kull as Sally Jackson, Glynn Turman as Chiron, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Hermes, and many more, including a final television appearance by the late Lance Reddick as Zeus. The series is characterized by its quick-witted writing and action-packed sequences, promising to be both visually stunning and rich in storytelling.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians has been praised for its authentic casting, with the actors being closer in age to their book counterparts than in previous adaptations, which is something that fans have particularly appreciated. The series aims to capture the essence of the books and the spirit of the characters, as well as the epic adventures that await them.
