    Here's Everything We Know About The New "Percy Jackson" Series Coming To Disney+

    Time to once again become obsessed with Greek mythology.

    Calling all demigods — Percy Jackson is returning to our lives!

    Yes, it's true. The son of Poseidon is coming back into mainstream culture with a new TV series!!

    Disney+ has officially announced the show, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, based on the famous book series by Rick Riordan.

    The best part — Rick Riordan will be heavily involved. He's signed on as an executive producer and will also be cowriting the pilot alongside James Bobin, who has directed films like Dora and the Lost City of Gold and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

    The series is a spinoff of the novels and will take us back to a 12-year-old Percy who just recently discovered his powers and is forced to go on a quest to find Zeus's missing master lightning bolt.

    As a massive fan of the books, I was a bit disappointed by how the movies turned out (especially because Logan Lerman was a perfect Percy). So I'm super excited to see how they redeem themselves with the series.

    No word yet on the casting, but the series is set to begin filming this summer.
