The first season of Netflix’s Greek mythology anime ‘Blood of Zeus’ was brilliant, but will the series return for season 2 and if so, when?

Between Castlevania and Blood of Zeus, both Netflix originals, Powerhouse Animation Studios are finally getting the recognition they deserve.

The latter series, Blood of Zeus, premiered on Netflix on October 27th and gave viewers a fresh, adrenaline-filled experience of classic Greek mythology.

The anime series was a smash hit for the streaming platform, but fans are already desperate to know when Heron and the gods will return for season 2.

Will there be a season 2 of Blood of Zeus?

  • It’s good news for fans of Blood of Zeus, the anime series has been renewed for a second season by Netflix and Powerhouse.

Yesterday, December 3rd, it was confirmed that Blood of Zeus had been renewed for a second season but to be honest, not many fans were too surprised.

The most obvious tease that the series would be renewed was the season 1 finale, which showed Seraphim teaming up with Hades following his defeat at Olympus.

The series received widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike, scoring an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.7/10 on IMDB.

The series was also trending on Netflix and social media platforms across the world for the week following its premiere, demonstrating just how popular Blood of Zeus was with fans.

Blood of Zeus season 2 release date…

  • Whilst an official release date for Blood of Zeus season 2 has not been officially revealed, fans can expect the Greek mythology anime to return in summer 2021.

From order to premiere, season 1 had a roughly 18-month production cycle. However, with the streamlining that sequels usually experience on Netflix, fans can expect Blood of Zeus season 2 to release in mid-2021.

The one issue that we could foresee with the production of season 2 would be the schedule for Powerhouse Studios going into the new year.

The Texas-based animation team are currently working on two new series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation and Heaven’s Forest – both of which are expected to debut next year.

However, with the resources available to Netflix, any delay to production would likely only push the Blood of Zeus season 2 release date until autumn 2021.
