A series adaptation of Rick Riordan’s The Kane Chronicles trilogy is in development at Disney+, which is home to its sister series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The series is being described as being set in the world of Percy Jackson. Similar to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Riordan will come onboard as a writer and executive producer for the series.


In 2020, Riordan had announced that Netflix was developing a trilogy of films adapting The Kane Chronicles. Since its announcement, no updates were made until February of this year when Riordan announced the films would not move forward after four years of development hell. In May, during his spring update, he mentioned exploring other options for the franchise but had nothing to announce at the time. Following the success of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, it does not come as a surprise that Disney would want to expand the universe in a similar format.

The Kane Chronicles focuses on two siblings, Carter and Sadie Kane, who are teenage magicians, and descendants of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Although it focuses on a different set of mythology, there have been subtle hints and crossovers in the respective book franchises that suggest these mythological worlds coexist.


Riordan has written crossover stories where characters from Percy Jackson encounter characters from The Kane Chronicles: "The Son of Sobek,” "The Staff of Serapis," and "The Crown of Ptolemy.” These crossovers demonstrate that the characters and mythologies from both series can interact, which opens the way for more possibilities for future interactions in the live-action shared universe on Disney+.
