“Lance Reddick Remembered”: Fans Honor Percy Jackson Tribute and TV Legacy

Fans of Percy Jackson and the Olympians are thinking a lot about Lance Reddick lately. In the recent finale of the first season, they honored him with a title card at the end of the episode.

Reddick passed away at age 60 on March 17. At a panel during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, which happened recently, he was the first topic discussed. This was for the Disney+ series.

Someone in the audience asked the creators who would take over Reddick’s role in future episodes. Reddick played Zeus, the god of sky and thunder, who thinks Percy stole his lightning bolt.

Jon Steinberg, co-creator and executive producer, said they’re not ready to think about replacing Reddick yet. He mentioned there’s a bit of denial about it. Steinberg also said they’re grateful for the character Reddick helped create and for his presence. He added that whoever replaces him has big shoes to fill.

Dan Shotz, another executive producer, said they received a text from Reddick’s wife, Stephanie Reddick. She said Reddick would have been proud to see the show. Shotz mentioned it’s been tough without Reddick but appreciated that the world got to see him in this iconic role.

Before Percy Jackson, Reddick played Charon in the John Wick movies and had roles in American Horror Story, Bosch, Fringe, and The Wire.

Reddick passed away a week before John Wick: Chapter 4 released in 2023. After his death, his wife posted a black-and-white photo on Instagram, thanking everyone for their love and support. She mentioned how much Reddick loved his fans and the game Destiny, where players paid tribute to him after his passing.
