The first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians was quite a spectacle, and Disney+ is bringing it back for another ride! Our favorite demigod will return after the streaming giant renewed the adaptation of Rick Riordan’s best-selling book series for another season.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians follows the adventures of a 12-year-old modern demigod, coming to terms with his newfound powers. After the almighty Zeus accuses him of stealing his lightning bolt, Percy must join forces with his BFFs Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood to try and restore order to Olympus.
Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri lead this fantasy series, which premiered on Disney+ last December to positive reviews. It became a huge hit with Disney+ and Hulu viewers, with the premiere episode attracting 26.2 million viewers in its first three weeks of streaming.
Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, confirmed the show’s renewal and praised it for captivating 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,” said Davis in a statement.
