What Will ‘Percy Jackson’ Season 2 Be About?
ICYMI, Percy Jackson was originally a five-book series written by Rick, who also works as a coshowrunner, writer and producer on the show. The series follows the adventures of a young Greek demi-god as he attempts to thwart major Olympian wars, fight off monsters and attend summer camp.
Season 1 focused on the first book of the series, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, which has Percy, Annabeth and Grover on a quest to return the Zeus’ missing lightning bolt back to the king of the gods to prevent an Olympian war.
As for season 2, we can expect the show to follow closely the events of Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
The book begins with the discovery that Thalia’s tree has been poisoned which consequently weakens the borders of Camp Half-Blood, sparking the need for a quest to find the Golden Fleece — a.k.a. the only magical item that can potentially save the tree, and the camp. The only catch is that they must sail into the Sea of Monsters to find it.
Which New ‘Percy Jackson’ Characters Will Debut In Season 2?
Warning: major spoilers ahead. There are several new characters that make their debut in The Sea of Monsters, so we can expect to see announcements of plenty of new cast members.
Some of those characters include: Tyson, a Cyclops and Percy’s half-brother; Polyphemus, a Cyclops holding Grover hostage; Tantalus, the camp’s new activities director; Thalia Grace, the demigod daughter of Zeus.
