On May 14, 2020, author Rick Riordan announced the development of an adaptation of his book franchise, Percy Jackson. He will be acting as a writer, and both he, and his wife, will be involved in every aspect of the shows creation. The series is confirmed to last for five seasons, with each season serving as an adaptation of a book in the series.
- This will be a second attempt at the franchise, following the release of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) and its sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013), by 20th Century Fox.
- Following the announcement, Logan Lerman, who originally portrayed the titular character, sent out a tweet, showcasing his support for the new adaptation.
- Prior to 20th Century Fox being purchased by Disney in March 2019, the song "It's a Small World" can be heard in one scene in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters by coincidence; the aforementioned film was also distributed by 20th Century Fox.
