It looks like Percy Jackson and his friends will be going on another adventure as Disney+ has renewed the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series for a second season.
The second season announcement was made today by Disney CEO Bob Iger during the company’s Earnings Call.
The renewal comes a week after the season one finale dropped on Disney+ on January 30th, wrapping up Percy’s quest to find Zeus’ Lightning Bolt.
According to Disney, season one has been streamed for over 110 million hours across both Disney+ and Hulu, and it’s a hit with critics, too, earning a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The first season of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” followed Percy (Walker Scobell), a 12-year-old modern demigod, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus (the late Lance Reddick) accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. Percy and his friends Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri) venture on a trek across America to find it and restore order to Olympus.
The second season will follow Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Grover Underwood (Aryan Simhadri) as they embark on a new adventure based on “The Sea of Monsters,” the second book of Rick Riordan’s best-selling series, published by Disney Hyperion.
“I can’t wait to bring the next season of Percy Jackson to Disney+!,” Riordan said. “Raise anchors. Hoist the mainsail. All hands on deck, demigods. We’re heading for the Sea of Monsters!”
No release date has been given for season two but my guess is it won’t happen until 2025.
Until then, season one is available to stream on Disney+, if you need to catch up, and there is also a behind the scenes look at the show on Disney+, as well.
