While Disney’s Percy Jackson series has already found its principal trio, there is still the case of the different characters that Percy interacts with. Just in, Disney has revealed who else will be filling up this world of the Olympians.
According to Variety, Megan Mullally, Jason Mantzoukas, Glynn Turnman, Virgina Kull, and Timm Sharp have joined the cast of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Kull will be playing the part of Percy’s mother with Sharp being cast as Gabe, Percy’s stepfather. Mullally has been cast as Mrs. Dodds, who is Percy’s literally monstrous Math teacher; while Turnman will be playing Percy’s centaur mentor Mr. Brunner who introduces him to Camp Half-Blood—which will be run by Dionysus (played by Mantzoukas).
There’s a bunch of other characters we don’t know about yet. Besides the gods themselves who have not been cast, there are also other characters in mythology that Percy, Grover, and Annabeth run into on their journey. If the supporting cast is already this great, I hope they manage to land some great talent to play the more colourful roles in the series.
For now, production has already begun for the show, which means we could get a premiere sometime next year. Fingers crossed we won’t have to wait until 2023 to get our first teaser though. With so much hype behind this series, you’d think Disney would want to market it pretty well.
No release date has been set for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but you can watch out for it on Disney+.
