‘Percy Jackson’ Author & Producer Rick Riordan Gives Update on Season 2 Possibility

We are getting an update on a potential second season of the upcoming new series Percy Jackson and the Olympians!

Earlier this year, the author of the book series and executive producer on the show Rick Riordan teased that they were fully anticipating a renewal.

“If you haven’t seen a particular god or demigod announced, that’s because they don’t appear in the season and won’t be cast until we start the subsequent seasons, which means any of those announcements are probably at least a year away,” Rick shared at the time. “More later, demigods, but I am pleased to tell you we are in a very good place as we look ahead to a (not-yet-greenlit-but-fully-anticipated) season two!”

Shortly after Rick shared a second season was anticipated, he confirmed that a writers’ room was working on mapping out a second season, but they paused when the writers’ strike began in May.

Now, it’s been revealed that the Writers Guild of America and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal to end the strike.

With that, Rick shared that the end of the strike needs to be made official before they can continue working on a second season of the Percy Jackson TV series.

“I wish I knew. It is too early to know,” Rick told ComicBook.com. “Of course, we still have to hear from WGA that the offer is in fact accepted and it has to be voted on, et cetera, et cetera. I don’t know how long that’s going to take, and it is a very long process even when there are not these obstacles and hurdles.”

He also re-iterated that although they were working on mapping out a second season, it’s not official yet.

“Nothing is greenlit yet. Nothing is confirmed, but we did have a first sort of short writer’s room that at least allowed us to kind of sketch out what Season 2 would look like if it is approved and where the story would start,” he shared. “I don’t know, but I’m hopeful.”

If you missed it, a new teaser trailer for the upcoming series was revealed last week.
