Percy Jackson fans received some great news in May when it was announced by none other than the author of the book series, Rick Riordan, himself that the young adult series will be receiving a TV series adaptation at Disney+.
Not much else was disclosed during the initial announcement and now fans are clamouring to know exactly how long they will need to wait to see Percy Jackson and gang in action once again.
As it turns out, according to Riordan, the earliest the TV series will be hitting Disney+ will be in 2022.
It seems no matter how eager Percy Jackson fans are to see the demigod appear on Disney+, they will still have to wait a while. Aside from the usual trappings that come with TV production, the cast and crew will also have to contend with the COVID-19 pandemic which has already resulted in several productions having to halt their filming.
At the very least, Percy Jackson fans can rest easy knowing that both Rick and his wife Becky Riordan are putting in the effort to make sure fans get the best adaptation possible. Considering how badly the live-action films were, Percy Jackson certainly deserves the best.
