It was quite the first season for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, with the show breaking a streaming record on Disney Plus – and now, we're looking ahead to season 2!


Yep, the wildly popular series, based on the books by Rick Riordan, has officially been renewed for season 2 and we can't wait to head to the Sea of Monsters.

Walker Scobell leads the cast as a young demigod, who is only just starting to understand his powers when he's thrown into a wild adventure alongside pals Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri).

Here's everything we know so far about Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 release date speculation

We don't have a release date for Percy Jackson and the Olympians just yet but, at a guess, it could come as soon as summer 2025.

Author Riordan has revealed that season 2 scripts have already been written so, as a result, filming could get started very quickly.

The first season required eight months to shoot, plus several more in post-production to get the visual effects looking nice and shiny.

The series was renewed for season 2 in February, as confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, with Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis saying: “Rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart, Percy Jackson and the Olympians captivated the imaginations of viewers of all ages everywhere.

"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 ensemble of cast and creative talent that bring this story to life.”

Riordan previously chatted to about the prospect of more seasons, saying: "The idea, if we are lucky enough to have it come about, is that every season of the show would be one book in the series. So season 2 would be Sea of Monsters et cetera.

"And we would go through all five books as five seasons. It's too early to say if we'll have that opportunity, of course – that depends on how the show does. [But] that would be amazing. The early indications are incredibly positive."

Who could be in the cast of a potential Percy Jackson season 2?

We're expecting many of our favourites to return for Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2.

We're certainly expecting our core trio of Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri to return as series leads Percy, Annabeth and Grover respectively.

Riordan has also spoken (via his blog) of a "bigger role" for Dior Goodjohn's Clarisse La Rue and "more" of Charlie Bushnell's Luke Castellan in season 2, with both characters featuring in The Sea of Monsters.

Showrunner and executive producer Dan Shotz has also teased "future" plans for Mr Brunner (aka Chiron), so you can expect The Wire alum Glynn Turman to inhabit that role for the foreseeable.

Shotz told Variety: "Chiron, in the story, is in a wheelchair. In lore, centaurs were warriors. So with our Chiron, the horse has a brace on his leg, a war injury, so that his disability isn’t just a cover.

"It’s something we’re going to deal with in the future of the series. We don’t even address it in the first season. Right now, it’s just a detail."

The first season also included guest appearances from the likes of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adam Copeland, Jay Duplass and Toby Stephens, but it's not yet known if these established stars will reprise their roles.

Tragically, Zeus actor Lance Reddick died in March 2023, making Percy Jackson and the Olympians his final television appearance. The final episode of season 2 paid tribute to the late actor.

What will be the plot of Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 will adapt the second book in the series, the Sea of Monsters.

The book sees Percy and his friends attempt to save Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus and try to save Camp Halfblood from a Titan's attack.

However, as we've seen, the series isn't afraid to make changes to the story. In season 1, fans were surprised to see Percy miss the summer solstice deadline from Zeus, which didn't happen in the novel – so clearly, anything could happen!
