"Rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart, Percy Jackson and the Olympians captivated the imaginations of viewers of all ages everywhere," said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television.

Based on Disney Hyperion's best-selling book series by Rick Riordan, the series follows Percy Jackson, a 12-year-old modern demigod who is coming to terms with his newfound divine powers. When Zeus, the sky god, accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt, Percy and his friends, Grover and Annabeth, embark on the adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.
