Back in 2005, author Rick Riordan introduced us to a thrilling new fantasy-adventure book series inspired by Greek mythology, and it was called Percy Jackson & the Olympians. The series revolves around the titular Percy Jackson, a twelve-year-old boy who discovers that he is secretly a demigod, being the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. Quickly becoming a smash hit, Riordan followed up the incredibly popular first installment with four more, taking readers on an incredibly unpredictable journey as we saw Percy grow up and embrace his identity to help save the world. In 2010, following the conclusion of the book series, a film adaptation of the first novel, The Lightning Thief, was brought to the big screen. A sequel, Sea of Monsters, followed in 2013, however, both films garnered mixed responses from audiences and critics alike, as well as fans of the source material. Riordan didn’t seem to be such a big fan of the films either, both during their production and years on from their release. Fortunately, this epic book saga is now getting a second chance to return to our screens, this time as a TV series!
