Unfortunately, the supreme god Zeus accused the boy of stealing his thunder. Percy teamed up with his friends, Grover and Annabeth, and set to find the missing artefact, which required him to delve into the extraordinary world of gods, monsters, and fantastic creatures.
The series was met with a warm reception from viewers, so it’s no surprise that Disney has announced a second season.
Here’s our guide on everything we know so far about the next instalment of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 potential release date
Disney hasn’t announced when season 2 will debut, but the first season took around a year and a half to land on Disney+ from when filming kicked off.
Based on that, if production commences this year then we could see Percy Jackson return in the second half of 2025.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 2 plot
The Disney show is an adaptation of a series of young adult novels by Rick Riordan. Season 1 was based on the first volume, titled The Lightning Thief. Season 2 will likely be based on the second book, The Sea of Monsters.
After the events in the previous novel, Percy spends a quiet year at Meriwether College Prep. However, not only does he clash with man-eating giants on the last day of school, but Annabeth returns to Camp Half-Blood with alarming news. It soon becomes apparent that the magical barrier protecting the camp from the rest of the world has been destroyed. Half-gods and other beings begin to face real danger from a mysterious enemy.
The Percy Jackson book series consists of six volumes:
The Lightning Thief
The Sea of Monsters
The Titan’s Curse
The Battle of the Labyrinth
The Last Olympian
It means there’s enough material for several seasons, providing Disney renews the show after the second instalment airs.

For now there’s no trailer for the second season of the show.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians cast
We expect most of the actors to reprise their roles in the show’s second season:
Walker Scobell – Percy Jackson
Leah Sava Jeffries – Annabeth Chase
Aryan Simhadri – Grover Underwood
Lin-Manuel Miranda – Hermes
Megan Mullally – Alectoaka aka Mrs Dodds
Toby Stephens – Poseidon
Virginia Kull – Sally Jackson
Jason Mantzoukas – Dionysus aka Mr. D
Jay Duplass – Hades
Glynn Turman – Chiron aka Mr. Brunner
Adam Copeland – Ares
Charlie Bushnell – Luke Castellan
Dior Goodjohn – Clarisse La Rue
Jessica Parker – Kennedy Medusa
Olivea Morton – Nancy Bobofit
Suzanne Cryer – Echidna
Timm Sharp Gabe – Ugliano
Timothy Omundson – Hephaestus
Unfortunately, we won’t see Lance Reddick, who played the role of Zeus, in season 2. He passed away shortly after the end of shooting for season 1, so his role will most likely be taken over by another actor.
Many new faces will surely join the cast, but Disney hasn’t given any information about this matter for now.
