Great news for fans of the fantasy series Percy Jackson and the Olympians because it has officially been renewed. With over 110 million hours streamed to date, it is easy to see why the Disney+ Hotstar series received the green light.
The announcement was made this morning by Bob Iger, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company, during the company’s first quarter earnings call for the fiscal year 2024. 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 installment of Rick Riordan’s best-selling ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ book series, published by Disney Hyperion.
“Rich in magic, wonder, adventure and heart, Percy Jackson and the Olympians captivated the imaginations of viewers of all ages everywhere,” said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television. “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.”
“I can’t wait to bring the next season of Percy Jackson to Disney+ Hotstar!,” said Riordan. “Raise anchors. Hoist the mainsail. All hands on deck, demigods. We’re heading for the Sea of Monsters!”
Revival Of Interest
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 Middle Grade series following the series’ debut.

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.
