Percy Jackson and the Olympians, based on Rick Riordan’s novels, streams on Disney+ every Tuesday.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians is streaming and it has secured a position among the top five most-watched season premieres in all of 2023 on Disney+ and Hulu with only its first episode. As per a report on Variety, the show has brought in 13.3 million views in its first six days since its premiere on the streaming platforms.
Other Shows on Disney+
Besides Percy Jackson and the Olympians, other shows which debuted on Disney+ this year include The Mandalorian Season 3, Loki Season 2, Ahsoka and Secret Invasion. On the other hand, Hulu saw releases of The Bear Season 2, Only Murders in the Building Season 3, The Kardashians Seasons 3 and 4, American Horror Stories Season 3, the Futurama reboot and others.
The report also pointed out, that Ahsoka marked a slightly higher viewership in five days of viewing with 14 million viewers. In comparison, Loki Season 2 witnessed 10.9 million viewers in just three days. However, the numbers recorded by Percy Jackson remain impressive as the show aims to find an audience between 8 to 12 years old (middle graders), reportedly, while both Ahsoka and Loki aimed at a much larger group of adult audiences. Clearly, Percy Jackson has found a bigger audience than expected.
