Over a decade after the first attempt at adapting Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” Disney+ is taking a stab at the incredibly popular, Greek mythology-infused children’s series.

The first season of the show adapts “The Lightning Thief,” the first “Percy Jackson” novel. It follows Percy Jackson, a young demigod who learns that he’s the son of Poseidon, god of the sea, and is sent on a quest to retrieve his uncle Zeus’ master bolt. On the way, he’s accompanied by Annabeth Chase, a daughter of Athena, and Grover Underwood, a satyr. 

Fans first met the new Percy Jackson in April 2022, when Riordan announced on his website that Walker Scobell had been cast in the role. Soon after, the casting of Percy’s two best friends was announced, with Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth and Aryan Simhadri as Grover. While the show’s official Twitter account announced in February that filming had wrapped, the show doesn’t yet have a release date.

Featuring young actors and industry giants like the late Lance Reddick and Lin-Manuel Miranda, here’s the cast of the upcoming “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series.
