The announcement of a full remake of an old property by Hollywood doesn’t always receive unanimous praise. Some classic properties are considered perfectly fine as they are, and fans may wonder why there’s a need to revisit them. On the other hand, certain properties could greatly benefit from a fresh perspective to revitalize, reshape, and enhance their narratives. Then there are those that didn’t quite hit the mark initially but held immense potential, warranting a second chance.
In this spectrum, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” falls into the category deserving of a second shot, arriving just over a decade after the underwhelming previous adaptation. This revival aims to offer an improved rendition, providing a renewed opportunity to delve into the cherished fantasy story. Although the series is still in its early stages, it appears to be accomplishing just that. Garnering exceptional reviews from both critics and audiences alike, it has quickly amassed a new legion of eager fans who await the continuation of season 1.
When do new episodes of ‘Percy Jackson’ come out?
For those eagerly anticipating the next installment, the release schedule provides a roadmap of what’s to come. The first and second episodes premiered on Disney Plus on Dec. 19, showcasing a promising start that exceeded the earlier adaptation’s performance. The series has been praised for its faithfulness to the original books by Rick Riordan, showcasing a genuine reverence for his work within its meticulously crafted initial episodes.
Fans are optimistic and hopeful for a consistent quality as the season progresses. The release of episode 3, which marks the series nearing its halfway point with eight episodes in total, is scheduled to debut on Disney Plus on Dec. 26, one day after Christmas.
The subsequent episodes are slated to drop weekly throughout January. Episode 4 is expected on Jan. 2, followed by episode 5 on Jan. 9. Viewers can anticipate episode 6 arriving on Jan. 16, episode 7 a week later on Jan. 23, and the final episode concluding the month on Jan. 30.
The release pattern promises an exciting and eventful series of Tuesdays ahead. With the weekly drop of the remaining episodes, Tuesdays will become a focal point for Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ first season until the end of January. As the year progresses, fans will have to find other sources of entertainment beyond January 2024, but for the immediate future, Percy Jackson’s revival promises a captivating journey for its audience.
