Percy Jackson Season 2 Isn’t a Lock, But Rick Riordan Expects it to Happen

The main trio of Disney+ Percy Jackson adaptaion.

Percy Jackson creator Rick Riordan tells fans that he is confident that Disney+ will renew the upcoming fantasy series for additional seasons.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians author Rick Riordan has strongly implied that the upcoming Disney+ series adaptation of his best-selling fantasy novels will last longer than one season.

Following the recent casting of Zeus and Poseidon in the series, Riordan — who serves as a co-writer, creative consultant and executive producer on the upcoming fantasy series — wrote on his website/blog that he was confident about a second season pickup from Disney+. “This concludes the casting announcements for season one. If you haven’t seen a particular god or demigod announced, that’s because they don’t appear in the season and won’t be cast until we start the subsequent seasons, which means any of those announcements are probably at least a year away,” he wrote. “More later, demigods, but I am pleased to tell you we are in a very good place as we look ahead to a (not-yet-greenlit-but-fully-anticipated) season two!”

The first season of Percy Jackson will consist of eight episodes and adapt the first novel in Rick Riordan’s Camp Half-Blood Chronicles franchise, The Lightning Thief, which was first published in 2005 and centers around 12-year-old demigod Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell) being accused by the Greek god Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt. To quell tensions among the Big Three — Zeus, Poseidon and Hades — Percy and his friends Annabeth Chase (Leah Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri) must embark on a cross-country quest to track down the lost lightning bolt and restore order to Mount Olympus.

Disney+’s Percy Jackson Will Expand on the Source Material

After two critically derided Percy Jackson films, Riordan has promised fans that the Disney+ adaptation will not feature any major storytelling changes. However, he has hinted that the series will include additional material not present in the books. “Sure, there are small tweaks and changes here and there, which were mutually agreed upon, but the biggest difference is the ‘value added,'” he revealed in August 2022. “You will get peeks at character backstory, foreshadowing Easter eggs of things to come, and nuances in Percy’s family history that I think you will love.”

If Percy Jackson is renewed, Riordan has confirmed that the second season would adapt The Sea of Monsters, the second novel in his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. First published in 2006, The Sea of Monsters is set one year after the events of The Lightning Thief and chronicles the adventures of the title character as he and his friends rescue Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus and save Camp Half-Blood from a Titan’s attack by bringing the Golden Fleece to cure Thalia’s poisoned pine tree.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians premieres on Disney+ in early 2024.
