"Percy Jackson" Author RICK RIORDAN Shares Update on New Series
To say we're excited for the upcoming television series based on the best-selling Percy Jackson saga would be an understatement—we're ecstatic! And author Rick Riordan just had the perfect update to tide us over the loooooong wait for the project's premiere.
"Hope you guys have a great weekend! I know I will. I have some work to do," he wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of his computer wherein the first page of the script for the upcoming series can be seen.
This update only reiterated his earlier promise of delivering a live-action Percy Jackson series "of the highest quality," which will follow "the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in Season 1." He added, "Becky [his wife] and I will be involved in person in every aspect of the show."
The critically-acclaimed novel series spawned two blockbuster films with Logan Lerman in the titular role—Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief in 2010 and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters in 2013.
