Percy Jackson and the Olympians ‘ first season will be based on the first book of Rick Riordan ‘s literary saga , but will this also be the case for potential next seasons?
The author answered this question on Good Reads:
“That’s the idea, yes. Of course, we need to get approval for the next few seasons first. At the moment we have the green light for only one season, but if you all watch it and enjoy it, I am optimistic that we will get the approval to do more. ”
