‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ Renewed for Season 2

If you couldn’t get enough of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, there’s some good news – the hit Disney+ series has been renewed for season 2!

The streamer confirmed the second season today in a press release after also announcing an animated sequel to Moana is coming in November and Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour concert film would be available in March.

But back to the demi-gods…it’s no surprise really, given the first season of Percy Jackson starring Walker Scobell ended just last week and audiences have been going wild online asking for more.

Season 2 will adapt the second book from author Rick Riordan, The Sea of Monsters, where Percy and his fellow demigods go on a mission to rescue his friend Grover from a cyclops and find the “Golden Fleece.”

“Rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart, Percy Jackson and the Olympians captivated the imaginations of viewers of all ages everywhere,” Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to embark on an exciting new quest and a season two with Rick Riordan, our fantastic partners at 20th Television and the exceptional ensemble of cast and creative talent that bring this story to life.”

Riordan also confirmed the news in a statement: “I can’t wait to bring the next season of Percy Jackson to Disney+. Raise anchors. Hoist the mainsail. All hands on deck, demigods. We’re heading for the Sea of Monsters!”

The first series also stars Aryan Simhadri as Grover and Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth, and is based on Riordan’s book, The Lightning Thief, where we meet 12-year-old Percy who makes a perilous journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen Zeus’ master bolt. Along the way, he meets friends, and mythological enemies who want to end his quest.

No release date has been set for season 2 just yet, so stay tuned!
