Disney+'s December 2023 lineup has 'Percy Jackson,' 'Doctor Who,' and Christmas specials.

The New Percy Jackson Series Is Finally Premiering This Month

Time to return to Camp Half-Blood.


Some people say that the best part of the holidays is spending time with family or exchanging presents, but the real joy of the season is getting to just lay down on the couch all day and catch up on some TV and movies. And thankfully, Disney+ is going to be dropping some can’t-miss premieres all December long. From the highly-anticipated Percy Jackson adaptation to new Doctor Who specials, here’s everything coming to Disney+ in December 2023.

The biggest new show premiering on Disney+ this month is definitely Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the long-awaited adaptation of the hit mid-2000s mythology adventure novels. The books were famously adapted before into two movies in 2010 and 2013, but those films were torn apart by fans and author Rick Riordan himself for not being faithful to the books. With Riordan’s involvement in this new TV series, the show is expected to be the accurate adaptation fans have been waiting for.

Three new Doctor Who specials will also be teleporting onto Disney+ over the holidays. The first two will center on David Tennant’s Doctor, with the third being a Christmas special that will introduce Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor at long last.

Marvel’s most twisted series, What If...?, is also returning for its second season, and in a first for the franchise, the whole season will drop new episodes on a daily schedule from Dec. 23 to Dec. 30.
