The news of Disney+ renewing "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" for a second season has delighted fans of the popular book series and the show alike. Adapted from Rick Riordan's beloved books, the series follows the adventures of Percy Jackson, the son of the Greek god Poseidon, as he navigates the challenges of being a demigod.
Starring Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, along with Leah Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri as his friends Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood, the first season premiered in December 2023.

Rick Riordan expressed his excitement for the new season, stating, "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."
Executive produced by a talented team including Dan Shotz, Rebecca Riordan, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Bert Salke, Jeremy Bell, D.J. Goldberg, James Bobin, Monica Owusu-Breen, and others, "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" is a collaboration between Disney Branded Television and 20th Television.
