In a true gift from the gods, Percy Jackson and the Olympians has been officially renewed for a second season on Disney Plus!


The first season came to a close at the end of January, and fans have been desperate to know if they will be getting another instalment of the action-packed series.

Led by Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri as Percy, Annabeth and Grover respectively, the season saw the trio thrown into a wild adventure, and there's plenty more on the horizon - as the actors will all be returning for the next run.

Season 2 will see the group embark on a new adventure based on Rick Riordan's The Sea of Monsters, as part of his Percy Jackson and the Olympians book series.
