It is always welcome news when a network renews a fan-favorite television series. Here is the HUGE announcement Disney+ dropped today.
Disney+ has been busy lately. The streaming service has seen some big changes including pricing structure and password sharing announcements.
There have also been some unfortunate cancelation announcements. For example, The Muppets Mayhem has been canceled after just one season. In fact, several other shows are ending including the Mysterious Benedict Society, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
But, there is new content to celebrate too! Bluey received a new wave of Episodes. Ahsoka got the green light for a new season. Taylor Swift is on the way, to Disney+ too! And, now we have another HUGE announcement.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Rick Riordan’s beloved Percy Jackson series has been reimagined and released as a Disney+ series. Fans were hoping for the best after a less-than-stellar theatrical rendition of the best seller left viewers feeling underwhelmed, and Disney+ seems to have delivered with this one! The rewrite has been a much more faithful retelling of the story.
Truly, perhaps sticking more closely to the original material is just what Disney needed to do to break the spell of underperforming premieres that it has seen with some of its recent releases both in theaters and on the streaming service.
Happily, Percy Jackson and the Olympians set a record for its premier! You can read the whole story here. Not only that, but it has maintained momentum with over 110 million hours streamed to date!
The show certainly has staying power. In fact, today, Disney announced that Percy Jackson and the Olympians has been renewed for a second season! This is fantastic news for fans.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians has been renewed for a second season.
All hands will be on deck to make this season as successful as the first. Author Riordan said, “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!”
