Geeked Week completed its fifth day of announcements during its live stream with another brand new look and release date confirmation for the long-awaited return of Blood of Zeus. Season 2 is scheduled for global release on Netflix on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
To summarize (or introduce you to the program if you’re not familiar), Blood of Zeus is a Netflix original series that combines Greek mythology with rich animation to tell the story of Heron, a commoner living in ancient Greece who discovers his true heritage as the son of Zeus.
The first season, consisting of eight episodes, was released on October 27, 2020. Two months after the release, we learned that the show had been renewed for a second season.
Since then everything has been silent. We’ve been able to see a lot of people working on the project at Powerhouse Animation, but because of the way animated series are produced, we knew we were going to have a long wait.
But the wait is finally coming to an end!
The first teaser for the second season was released on Tuesday and read: «Don’t miss the first look at season two of Blood of Zeus at GEEKED WEEK ’23, Friday, November 10.»
The 50-second clip is included below:
Now the second trailer has been released, offering an additional minute and a half of new footage and giving a good idea of what to expect from season 2.
Will Heron continue his rise to heroism? How will the dynamic between the gods and the newly revealed characters evolve? We will know on May 15.
While it’s not the longest wait we’ve endured for a show’s season to return, Blood of Zeus It is undoubtedly one of the longest intervals. We’ve done the math, and by the time Season 2 arrives, 1,296 days will have passed since Season 1 debuted on Netflix. To put it in more relatable terms, that equates to 3 years, 6 months and 18 days.
