Percy Jackson Returns: Will Netflix Bring The Hit YA Series To Light After A Movie Fail?

by Christine Marie Attardo

Yesterday, Percy Jackson was trending on Twitter. No offense to writer, Rick Riordan, but I haven’t thought about those books in quite some time. While Riordan continues to release new books in the same realm of thought, I haven’t had a chance to read them, but that’s besides the point.

Fans are calling for a reboot of the film franchise. When the first two were released between 2010-2013, they flopped. To be honest, I didn’t even know they made a second adaptation because I hated the first so much. The sad part is, it looks like Riordan felt the same:

So, while the books were enormously successful, it is a shame that an enjoyable series isn’t available. That’s where Netflix comes in.

Twitter shared:

Fans of the series who didn’t think the Fox film adaptions did the books justice are calling for a reboot. Some are asking for an animated series, others are hoping it will be picked up by a streaming service.

Will Netflix hear the call? Perhaps, Hulu or Amazon Prime would like to take on a project like this too. I would personally love to go back to Camp Halfblood.
