Author Rick Riordan announces a new Percy Jackson book as the Percy Jackson series continues.
Rick Riordan Announces New Percy Jackson Book
The new book is titled Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Chalice of the Gods and will be released next year. It will follow the 5th book in the series and will continue the Percy Jackson series after a 14-year hiatus.
Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Grover Underwood will go on one more adventure to the delight of millions of fans. In the book, the trio has to help Zues’ cupbearer Ganymede find the missing chalice.
The timing of the book is no coincidence because a Disney+ show will also be released in the future titled Percy Jackson and the Olympians. An official date for the show has not been set as of yet.
A New Percy Jackson Novel
In an interview with Publishers Weekly, Riordan discussed the latest book and what it will entail.
“What if I sweetened the deal by giving the readers something they’ve been wanting for the last decade, a classic Percy Jackson novel from his point of view, featuring Percy, Annabeth, and Grover, just like the original five books?,” said Riordan. “It would be the first time since The Last Olympian in 2009 that we had an honest-to-goodness Percy Jackson novel.”
In the upcoming book, Percy is 17 and thinks about going to college. Riordan said there may or may not be more Percy Jackson books in the future.
You can buy this book next year as it will hit the bookstores on September 26, 2023.
