Percy Jackson and the Olympians is officially getting a second season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney+ has renewed Percy Jackson for a second outing just a week after the show's first season finished.
Season two is set to adapt the second book from Rick Riordan's series, 'The Sea of Monsters'. The novel sees titular hero Percy Jackson accompanied by his fellow demigods to rescue his friend Grover from a cyclops and retrieve the magical item known as the Golden Fleece.
Speaking about the renewal, Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis said in a statement: "Rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart, Percy Jackson and the Olympians captivated 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."
Meanwhile, Riordan added: "I can't wait to bring the next season of Percy Jackson to Disney+. Raise anchors. Hoist the mainsail. All hands on deck, demigods. We're heading for the Sea of Monsters!"
Starring Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri, season one of Percy Jackson and the Olympians premiered in December 2023 to strong reviews. It received a near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes from critics when it debuted, and it currently sits at a 92% Tomatometer rating.
The series also broke a major record for Disney, receiving 13.3 million views across Disney+ and the Disney-owned sister streamer Hulu.
The news comes after Riordan gave a promising update on the future of the series, revealing that he had begun writing episodes for the second season.
"We are doing what we can to prepare [for] the eventuality that we get the green light. We don't know. It is not official," he said.
"You know, we're getting reactions like we've had tonight, amazing reactions everywhere... so, if I was the Oracle, I would say the Auguries are good."
Percy Jackson and the Olympians is available to stream on Disney+.
