Percy Jackson Creator Reveals New TV Series Episode Count


fans of the Percy Jackson book series have been asking for a new show or movie for a long time. Finally, years after both feature film adaptations were met with mixed responses, the Percy Jackson franchise goes on television. Author and franchise creator Rick Riordan is working with Disney+ to develop Percy Jackson and the Olympians, an ongoing series that may follow several different book stories. As the start of production this summer draws closer, we’re getting some info on the show itself, including how many episodes will arrive with the first season.

Over the weekend, Riordan posted a new blog post on their website, talking about location scouting and designs for different things on the show. Pre-production is clearly in full swing. In the post, Riordan gave an update on the progress of the scripts, revealing that there will be eight episodes in total in the first season.

“Script work is also progressing well,” Riordan wrote. “We have almost completed the scripts for the first four episodes and are hard at work on the remaining four for the first season.”

Some fans were disappointed with the outcome of both Percy Jackson movies, but Riordan continued to assure fans that this series isn’t following the same path. According to the writer, it will be worth the wait.

“Having everyone together to align our visions for the show has been extremely helpful, and I think a lot of the confusion has been resolved (speaking for my own confused self, anyway!). The good news is that leadership is “all inclusive,” as they said, about doing this show and doing it right. A lot of them also have kids who grew up with Percy Jackson, so they get it,” said revealed Riordan last year. “They understand that there are millions upon millions of you waiting anxiously to see Percy Jackson come to life in a new way. We felt supported and heard, and I’m more confident than ever that this show is moving forward as it should. You have all made a difference. You always do. Showcase on social media, share your excitement for the show: Disney sees you. They heard you and they want to do good with you Percy fans. That, for me, is the number one priority, so I’m happy!”
