Earlier this year, it was revealed that Netflix was no longer moving forward with plans to create a new series based on the popular book series “Kane Chronicles,” which was written by “Percy Jackson” creator Rick Riordan.

It is set in the world of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” and takes audiences on another journey of mythology as the book series explores Egyptian gods in the modern world through the eyes of Sadie and Carter Kane.

Rick Riordan is currently working on the second season of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” for Disney+ and recently, he has revealed that work is still underway on bringing “Kane Chronicles” to the screen and that he has been having “some good conversations about next steps for a Kane Chronicles adaptation. Nothing settled or finalized yet, but some exciting possibilities. Just fyi so you know we haven’t forgotten about Carter and Sadie!”

Over the past few days, there have been reports about a Disney+ series based on the “Kane Chronicles” books. However, this has been debunked by Mythomagic Inc, which is a production company founded by Rick & Becky Riordan, took to Threads to confirm that there currently isn’t a deal with Disney+ for a “Kane Chronicles” series.

Development can mean lots of things. The whole point of our production company Mythomagic is to develop Rick’s books or other writing projects. Rick has discussed Kanes with Disney for years since the books were published especially as these books were US number one overall bestsellers when they were first published. No contracts currently are signed so until that happens there is no partnership with Disney+ on a film project to develop Kanes. Hopefully someday.

Roger’s Take: Disney+ does feel like the natural home for this project following the success of “Percy Jackson” on Disney+; it’s much more likely that Disney will also want to continue that success with another series set within the same universe. But with at least four more seasons of “Percy” to make in order to adapt all of the books in the series, it might be a while until we could see “Kane Chronicles” on our screen, and I would personally think it makes sense for them to get Percy done properly, rather than the creative team being distracted working on too many projects at once.
