While we still don’t know when the new one Percy Jackson and The Olympians series may be coming out, star Walker Scobell apparently gave us a little update in a recent interview.
Speaking in an interview with GoErie, Scobell actually let it slip that the new Percy Jackson show might just wash up on Disney+ sooner than anyone thought.
Some may remember creator (and now series producer) Rick Riordan sharing a blog post last year speculating that the new show would come to Disney+ in 2024. However, in his latest interview, Scobell suggests that the show could now arrive as soon as late 2023 to early in 2024.

The upbeat release update will no doubt delight fans of the novels, and it now looks like we may see Percy and his friends on their journey before the end of the year. Should the series come out at the end of the year, it will give fans an extra dose of Jackson because, as Riordan previously announced, there will be a new book this year too!
Percy Jackson and The Olympians book series is beloved by fans far and wide of all ages, and Disney has only just begun to crack this nut. With so much more material to explore, the Percy Jackson series could become massive and continue for years, just like the Marvel or DC series have.

The live-action show tells the fantastic story of the titular 12-year-old modern demigod (Scobell), who is just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. With the help of his friends Grover (Simhadri) and Annabeth (Jefferies), Percy must embark on the adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus. Grover is a satyr, half boy and half goat, disguised as a 12-year-old boy, and is Percy’s best friend. Annabeth is the true daughter of the Greek goddess Athena.
Scobell’s Percy is joined by as well as Aryan Simhadri as Grover and Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth. Additional cast members include Virginia Kull, Glynn Turman, Jason Mantzoukas, Megan Mullally, and Timm Sharp as well as Dior Goodjohn, Olivea Morton, Charlie Bushnell, and recent additions such as Adam Copeland, Suzanne Cryer, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Timothy Omundson, Jay Duplass, and Lin- Manuel Miranda, who recently joined as Hermes.
If renewed for multiple seasons, the series will tackle each new book for each season. They continue the series on the condition that more seasons come.
