Fans of Greek gods and demigods are in for a treat. Disney is bringing a show with the demigods and their stories on its digital platform. Six fantasy books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series were published by Rick Riordan between 2005 and 2023.
The series features Greek gods and is set in the twenty-first century. The Lightning Thief, the first book in the series, was made into a movie in 2010, which came after the book’s conclusion.
The 2013 release of a sequel, Sea of Monsters, was met with mixed reviews from critics, and viewers alike. Thankfully, we now get a second chance to see this epic book series on our screens—this time as a TV series!
