Just a week after the first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians ended its run, Disney+ revealed what the future holds for this show. The streaming giant officially renewed the adaptation of Rick Riordan’s beloved book series for its second season.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians follows the titular 12-year-old demigod, who joins forces with his BFFs Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood to restore order to Olympus. After Zeus accuses him of stealing his thunderbolt, Percy and his friends must race against time in order to find it.
In addition to Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri in the lead roles, the show’s first season also starred Virginia Kull, Glynn Turman, Jason Mantzoukas, Megan Mullally, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jay Duplass, and Lance Reddick.
Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, confirmed the show’s renewal and described it as “rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart.” She praised it for captivating the imaginations of viewers of all ages everywhere and added they’re thrilled to embark on an exciting new quest in Season 2.
Rick Riordan, who wrote the original Percy Jackson books, co-created this series for Disney+ alongside Jonathan E. Steinberg. He revealed we’ll be heading for the Sea of Monsters in Season 2, and asked fans to “raise anchors [and] hoist the mainsail.”
