Demigods assemble! Percy Jackson and the Olympians is airing on Disney+ but will there be a second season of the show?

Ever since Rick Riordan announced that he would be adapting Percy Jackson and the Olympians into a series with Disney+, fans have been hoping that the show will last long enough to cover every book in the franchise. The films in the 2010s only made it up to the second book, The Sea of Monsters, and were criticised for straying too far from the source material.

With the first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians now over, the demand for a second season is overwhelming. With that in mind, here's everything we know so far about Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 including the release date, cast info, plot spoilers and news about what's to come.

Will there be a Percy Jackson season 2?

Disney+ has finally confirmed that Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 is happening. In a statement, Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davi said: "We’re thrilled to embark on an exciting new quest and a season two with Rick Riordan, our fantastic partners at 20th Television, and the exceptional cast and creative talent that bring this story to life."

Rick Riordan also said: "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!"

When the show originally debuted, executive producer Jon Steinberg teased that discussions about season 2 were already happening. He told Deadline: "Everyone has a real hope that this will live a long and healthy life. Right now, we’re trying to deal with step one. But we’d be lying if we said there weren’t people who are thinking about step two right now."

Meanwhile, executive producer Becky Riordan confirmed that they’ve already started to outline the season 2 "bible". She said: "Sea of Monsters is one of my favourites. I really love that we’re going to have more time with Grover."

When is the Percy Jackson season 2 release date?

For now Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 is yet to get an official release date. However, given that Rick Riordan's explicitly said that he wants the series to remain a loyal adaptation of the books, we imagine that he will be keen to film season 2 as soon as possible so that the cast don't look too old.

Filming for season 1 took place between June 2022 and February 2023. If filming for season 2 starts soon, then it could come out as soon as early 2025. Bookmark this page and we'll let you know as soon as we know more.

Who is in the Percy Jackson season 2 cast?

Just like The Sea of Monsters, it seems likely that most of the characters from Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 1 will stick around for a second season in order to stay true to the books.

With this in mind, we expect to see all of these characters return in prominent roles:

  • Walker Scobell - Percy Jackson
  • Leah Jeffries - Annabeth Chase
  • Aryan Simhadri - Grover Underwood
  • Dior Goodjohn - Clarisse La Rue
  • Charlie Bushnell - Luke Castellan

Elsewhere, season 2 will introduce fans to many iconic characters from The Sea of Monsters. We can't wait to see who will be cast as Tyson the Cyclops, Tantalus, Charles Beckendorf, Rainbow, Agrius and Oreius, Circe, Reyna Ramírez-Arellano, Hylla Ramírez-Arellano, Blackbeard, Blackjack, Thalia Grace and Polyphemus.

What will happen in Percy Jackson season 2?

Based on everything the cast and crew have said, we reckon that Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 will follow the plot of The Sea of Monsters closely. In the book, Percy is 13 and he and his friends are tasked with saving Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus.

Meanwhile, Camp Half-Blood is attacked by a Titan and Clarisse is tasked with retrieving a Golden Fleece in order to cure the magical pine tree that protects Camp Half-Blood.

Just like season 1, it will be filled with magic, mystery and no doubt a couple of surprises.
