During today’s Disney’s quarterly financial results call, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that it has renewed the Disney+ Original series, “Percy Jackson And The Olympians” for a second season.

The upcoming season will feature the return of Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri, who will embark on a new adventure based on “The Sea of Monsters” – the second instalment of Rick Riordan’s best-selling “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” book series, published by Disney Hyperion.

Ayo Davis, president Disney Branded Television 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.”

Percy’s creator Riordan said in a statement:

“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!”

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” was one of the top 5 season premieres of 2023, with the first episode garnering 26.2 million views in its first three weeks on Disney+ and Hulu. On social, the #percyjackson hashtag earned over 1 billion views on TikTok in the U.S. over the last 30 days, while series-owned social handles have amassed a cumulative 4.6 million followers.  So it’s no surprise to see the show is returning for a second season.

The domino effect of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians’’ success has continued with Disney Hyperion publishing, with the “Percy Jackson” books returning to the #1 spot on the New York Times Bestseller list for the Middle-Grade series following the series debut. For Disney Consumer Products, Hot Topic launched an assortment of apparel, while Barnes & Noble released a variety of stationery alongside the published books, inspired by the hit show. More pieces will continue to be revealed in the coming weeks from Hot Topic and Barnes & Noble.

Created by Rick Riordan and Jonathan E. Steinberg, season one of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” is executive produced by Steinberg and Dan Shotz alongside Rick Riordan, Rebecca Riordan, The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Bert Salke, The Gotham Group’s Jeremy Bell and D.J. Goldberg, James Bobin, Jim Rowe, Monica Owusu-Breen, Anders Engström, Jet Wilkinson and Craig Silverstein.
