Do the recent rumors suggest that a Percy Jackson TV show is in the works, but is this happening?
The series focuses on the adventures of Percy Jackson, a 12-year-old boy who got to know that he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon.
Rumors about Percy Jackson’s TV show started in 2019
The site reported that the show would be a full reboot, ignoring previous Percy Jackson movies. Since the films were produced by 20th Century Fox, now owned by Disney, there was also speculation that the Percy Jackson television series would air on House of Mouse’s new Disney + streaming service.
Percy Jackson creator Rick Riordan had a reunion at Disney.
As of now, there is no official confirmation that a Percy Jackson TV series is definitely on, but a couple of tweets from Rick Riordan in mid-December 2019 certainly hinted at the possibility. In a tweet, Riordan said that he was in Los Angeles to meet with the powers that be to convince them that Percy Jackson should reboot, while in a subsequent tweet, he said:
“Today, I had good meetings at Disney. Too early to know what could happen, but I’ll move on! “”
Even in its early stages, Riordan’s encounters with Disney are a good sign that some kind of Percy Jackson reboot could occur in the not-too-distant future.
