Jonathan E. Steinberg and Dan Shotz, showrunners of the adaptation of Percy Jackson and the Olympians for Disney Plus, preview what’s to come in the upcoming episodes.
The first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians concluded with its eighth episode last Wednesday on Disney Plus. The second season has not yet been given the green light, but its creators are already thinking about it.
These first episodes of Percy Jackson and the Olympians were based on the novel Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, and the second season would continue in chronological order with Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
The showrunners of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Jonathan E. Steinberg and Dan Shotz, explained in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter that, in the first season, its protagonists fulfilled their purposes, closing the story.
However, the arc of Kronos, “hinted at throughout the entire season” but more explicit at the end of the series, prepared us for “the introduction of a much larger mythology” that will have direct consequences for Percy Jackson.
The new season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians will take us to the ocean
Aware that in Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, much of the action will take place at sea, Dan Shotz admitted that they will need “many ships,” and that the filming will be like going back to their days working on Black Sails, a series set in the Golden Age of Piracy.
Dan Shotz explained that he had sworn never to do any more filming involving ships and the ocean, but the universe has worked against him: “Although you learn a lot spending so much time in the water. You can’t help but learn some things. So at least we are prepared in that sense.” Hopefully, Percy Jackson and the Olympians will continue their adventures on Disney Plus.
