Has season 2 of Percy Jackson already been confirmed? Season 1 of the Disney+ series hasn’t even been released yet, but the writer/showrunner of the show, Rick Riordan, is already anticipating “subsequent” seasons. Keep reading for everything we know about the second season of Percy Jackson.
Will There Be a Season 2 of ‘Percy Jackson’?
Following the final cast announcements of Percy Jackson in January 2023, Rick teased that if fans haven’t seen news of their favorite character’s casting, it’s because they’ll probably be announced for “subsequent” seasons.”
“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,” Rick revealed on his blog. “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!”
Percy Jackson was originally a five-book series written by Rick, following the adventures of a young Greek demi-god as he attempts to thwart major Olympian wars, fight off monsters and attend summer camp.
As the originally written series includes five books, we can hope that five seasons of the show will follow — with each season covering another book.
Rick shared an update on the second season of Percy Jackson in September 2023, reiterating that although the writers behind the show have been working on mapping out a second season, it’s not yet been made official.
“Nothing is greenlit yet. Nothing is confirmed, but we did have a first sort of short writer’s room that at least allowed us to kind of sketch out what Season 2 would look like if it is approved and where the story would start,” he told ComicBook.com. “I don’t know, but I’m hopeful.”
