When it comes to Percy Jackson & The Olympians we didn’t think that we could have gotten more excited. But we should have known that the people behind the show were going to make us even more excited.
While we’re excited for our core three – Percy (Walker Scobell), Annabeth (Leah Jeffries), and Grover (Aryan Simhadri) and to see them in action – every time some one is added, we realize, we can’t wait to see everyone in action.
The latest star to join the cast is none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda. The superstar will be guest starring as Hermes. The messenger god who looks out for travelers and thieves and is a bit of a trickster himself. He is charismatic & boisterous, the life of the party. Unfortunately, his charm does not do much to heal his strained relationship with his son, Luke (Charlie Bushnell). He’s hesitant to help Percy and his friends on their quest as sometimes getting involved is more trouble than it’s worth.
The series is currently in production in Vancouver and is presumed to premiere in 2024.
