‘Kane Chronicles’ In Turnaround At Netflix, Book Series Author Confirms

Netflix is no longer going forward with adaptations of the book series Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan.

First announced in September 2020, the planned series used author the books of author Riordan, who is also behind Percy Jackson and the Olympians (currently being adapted into a Disney+ series) and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, The Trials of Apollo and Daughter of the Deep.

Riordan took to GoodReads to say that the Kane Chronicles project isn’t moving forward.

“Right now, Kane Chronicles is in ‘turnaround,’ which means Netflix has decided not to move forward and their option has lapsed after trying for two years to develop a script they liked. Now it depends on whether another studio would like to step in, assume the preproduction costs, and move forward. This is not at all unusual. It happens, I would guess, with the majority of film projects. Also, the streaming industry as a whole is shrinking their development slate right now, meaning they are cancelling more content and making less content. Kane got caught in that trend, despite the strong success of Percy TV.”
