Casting Begins for 'Percy Jackson And The Olympians' Season 2!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is one of the most beloved young adult book series, so it is only understandable that the interest in the series is quite high, especially since 2024 brought us another new installment in the series. As far as the adaptations are concerned, we know that we have two films starring Logan Lerman and that Disney is currently filming a streaming series for Disney+, whose first season was a massive success, while the second season is getting ready for production. In preparation for that, the first casting calls for Season 2 have been revealed, and they have provided us with some valuable information!

Disney’s new Percy Jackson And The Olympians series premiered on December 19, 2023. The first season consists of eight episodes, and it adapted the The Lightning Thief novel, which came out in 2005. A second season has been confirmed to adapt The Sea of Monsters novel, which is the second book in the series.

The second season is going to enter production very soon and we’ll probably see it come out sometime next year, but in order to prepare you for what is coming, we have some interesting casting calls for new characters that are going to play a major role in the series. The first one is Tyson:

“[We] are looking for actors of all ethnicities, between the ages of 15 to 18, for the role of Tyson who will be a series regular. The casting description for Tyson, describes him as big and tall, but with a heart just as big as he is. He is biologically 8 years old, but looks like a fully developed human teenager due to the Mist. His powers are invulnerability to fire, enhanced hearing, and ability to mimic voices.”

Tyson is, as fans of the books will know, a very important character, and he will definitely play a major role in the second season. And so will Thalia:

“[We are looking for] actresses between 15 to 18 of all ethnicities are being looked at for Thalia. She’s the daughter of Zeus who gave her life to protect her friends, 6 years prior to the series, but was saved by her father and turned into a tree. She has a tough and prickly personality and is described as being a punk or rebel. She will be a recurring guest star in Season 2, but with the potential for more in future seasons.”

And while these two were, more or less, expected, there is going to be one major change, as the second season is already going to include Alison:

“[Described as] a rogue demigod and a member of Luke Castellan’s (Charlie Bushnell) army. She lives in the human world now, but attended Camp Half-Blood in her younger years. She will be a recurring guest star. Actresses between 18 to 22 of all ethnicities are being looked at for the role.”

This is certainly going to be an interesting season, with many new characters joining the principal protagonists as they are looking for the Golden Fleece, which is going to be the main plot of the second season. Of course, these are not all the new names set to appear in season two, but this is what we have at the moment of writing, so be sure to keep following us for more updates!
