    Rick Riordan would also be in attendance during the making of the project. Asked about the on-screen future of his book series, he answered on Goodreads, “That’s the idea, yes. Of course, first, we have to get approval to do future seasons. Right now, we are only green-lit for one season, but if you all watch and like it, I am optimistic we will get approval to do more.” Until now, there have been only two movies in which Percy Jackson came into live-action.

Thus begins Percy’s journey, with his friends Grover and Annabeth, to find the master thunderbolt and to restore order to Olympus.

    The series has an amazing cast, with Walker Scobell playing Jackson, Aryan Simhadri as Grover, and Leah Sava Jeffries who had been cast in ‘Empire‘ would play Annabeth in this series. Rick Riordan and Jon Steinberg will serve as writers for the pilot, and James Bobin would be the director. Riordan has come up with the news regarding the series on his blog.
