Author and executive producer Rick Riordan gave a hint about a possible second season even before the official announcement.

Following the announcement of season 2, Riordan released a statement expressing his excitement for the upcoming instalment. He eagerly declared, “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!”
