The trailer features series leads Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri as they dive into Rick Riordan’s world of Greek mythology.
“It’s so weird, because I’ve been imagining it since like third grade and actually being there, you can’t even describe it,” Scobell says, while executive producer Jon Steinberg called it “an adventure” just making the series.
A Hero’s Journey will be streaming on January 30 for viewers to enjoy following the final episode.
