Percy Jackson and the Olympians Plot and Cast

The plot of the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians is set on a 12-year-old demigod Percy Jackson comes to terms with his newfound supernatural powers before being accused by the Greek god Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt, prompting him and his new-found companions, Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood, to embark on a quest across America to find the bolt and restore order to Olympus.

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.
