On Wednesday, Disney’s Bob Iger confirmed that Percy Jackson will return for a second season on Disney+. The news came during Disney’s Q1 2024 earnings call. The second season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians will follow the plot of the second book, The Sea of Monsters, and will see the series’ leading trio – Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell), Annabeth Chase (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover Underwood (Aryan Simhadri) – embark on a brand new adventure.
Celebrating the news, Rick Riordan, the author behind the bestselling series of books, expressed his excitement over returning for another adventure. “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!”
News of the show’s renewal comes a week after the first season’s finale dropped on the streaming service. Per Disney, Percy Jackson‘s first season reportedly generated more than 110 million hours streamed to date, with Deadline previously noting the first episode brought in 26.2 million views alone within its first three weeks. The adaptation was created by Riordan and Jonathan E. Steinberg, who also serve as executive producers on the series.
