Unsurprisingly, the “Percy Jackson” series will return very soon to Disney+ for a sequel. Here’s what we already know about the next season.
It was just a formality, but it’s now official: Percy Jackson and the Olympiansadaptation of the saga of Rick Riordan, is renewed for a season 2. The announcement was made on February 7, 2024, on the occasion of the presentation of the financial results of The Walt Disney+ Company for the first quarter of 2024.
This renewal for a season 2 is not a surprise. Indeed, the first burst of episodes of Percy Jacksonput online between December 20, 2023 and January 30, 2024, recorded more than 110 million hours of viewing according to information shared by Disney, signing with its start “one of the five best audiences of the 2023 season” .
At the microphone of TV Line, showrunner Jon Steinberg confirmed, well before the officialization of season 2 of Percy Jackson, that they were already working on a potential season 2. For the moment, the release date is not yet known since we also have to enter the filming phase. However, it seems unlikely to discover the continuation of the adventures of Percy, Annabeth and Grover before the end of 2024 or even 2025. It will however be put online on Disney+, on which the first season is already available.
Season 2 of Percy Jackson will resume the plot of the second volume written by Rick Riordan. Titled The sea of monsters, this work describes new adventures of the son of Poseidon. This time, he goes in search of the Golden Fleece with his friends. One unknown remains, however, that of the casting of the character of Zeus, played brilliantly by Lance Reddick in the final episode of season 1. His interpreter died on March 17, 2023, and we do not yet know if a change in casting will have place, and if so, who will be responsible for succeeding him.
