For those wondering if Percy Jackson and the Olympians would get a second season after Season One’s action-packed finale, wonder no more. Disney+ has officially renewed the show for another season, which was announced in Disney’s quarterly earnings call.
The first season has been off to a good start, with the first episode hitting over 13.3 million views, and a 92 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes with fans praising the adaptation’s fresh take on the well-loved series. No release date has been set for the second season.
Author Rick Riordan, who also created the TV series, shared that he was excited to return to the world of Percy Jackson, teasing that Season 2 will adapt the events of Sea of Monsters. Here’s the official synopsis of the second book:
“When Thalia’s tree is mysteriously poisoned, the magical borders of Camp Half-Blood begin to fail. Now Percy and his friends have just days to find the only magic item powerful to save the camp before it is overrun by monsters. The catch: they must sail into the Sea of Monsters to find it. Along the way, Percy must stage a daring rescue operation to save his old friend Grover, and he learns a terrible secret about his own family, which makes him question whether being the son of Poseidon is an honor or a curse.“
Walker Scobell plays Percy in the series, joining Aryan Simhadri (Grover) and Leah Sava Jeffries (Annabeth) as the main protagonist trio. The ensemble cast includes Virginia Kull, Glynn Turman, Jason Mantzoukas, Megan Mullay, Timm Sharp, Dior Goodjohn, Charlie Bushnell, and Adam Copeland, with guest appearances by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Toby Stephens, Jay Duplass, and more.
