Percy Jackson and the Olympians Release Date And Cast
The makers of Percy Jackson and the Olympians have recently declared a specific release date for the series. The brand-new show is scheduled to premiere on 20 December, 2023.
Principal photography began on June 2, 2022. Production took place in Vancouver, Canada, with the first two episodes directed by James Bobin. In July, it was confirmed that Jules O’Loughlin, who previously was the cinematographer for Ms. Marvel, was hired for the show.
The casting of the series starts in April 2021. In January 2022, Walker Scobell was cast in the lead role of Percy Jackson, with this being announced in April.
The next month, it was announced that Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri would respectively portray Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood, two close friends of Percy. Jeffries’ casting received online backlash due to Annabeth not being depicted as Black in the novels, which Riordan condemned as a byproduct of racism.
In June, Virginia Kull, Glynn Turman, Jason Mantzoukas, Megan Mullally, and Timm Sharp were announced to be appearing in recurring capacities as Sally Jackson, Chiron, Dionysus, Alecto, and Gabe Ugliano, respectively. The same month, Dior Goodjohn and Charlie Bushnell joined the cast in recurring roles as Clarisse La Rue and Luke Castellan, while Olivia Morton was announced to portray Nancy Bobofit in a guest role.
