Percy Jackson and the Olympians

The controversial reboot is slated to stream exclusively on Disney+. While the streaming service has been struggling, there’s some hope that the Mount Olympus and Greek God series might bring back fans.

This is especially true since the series will premiere exclusively on Disney+, and have all eight episodes available for simultaneous streaming. The Percy Jackson series surrounds a young demigod who has to try and save the world from the Titans.

Big names playing Gods and Goddesses of Greek myths include Jason Mantzoukas as Dionysus and Lin Manuel Miranda as Hermes.
