A new animated series from the producers of Netflix’s popular animated series Castlevania had been released. Blood of Zeus, in which we dive deep into Greek myth, is on Netflix on October 27, 2020. The first season of the series consists of 8 episodes. So how many seasons was the animated series set? Will there be a second season of the series? When will it air? Fantastic action genre production, as the name suggests, is about Greek mythology. Created by the production company Powerhouse like Seis Manos, the creators of the anime are Charley Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides. While there are many productions about Greek mythology, the fact that there are very few productions that really work well on Greek mythology puts Blood of Zeus one step ahead.

What is Blood of Zeus about?
The series focuses on Heron, a part of the people living on Greece’s outskirts during a war between the Olympian gods and the Titans. Heron, who discovered that his father was Zeus, with the dark secrets of the past; it appears as the only hope for humanity to survive the struggle with the demon armies.
Part of the series concentrates on an ancient war, an aggressive army of demons, and a dead giant, while the other half is filled with impressively designed action sequences. The production’s voice cast includes Jason O’Mara, Derek Phillips, Mamie Gummer, Claudia Christian, Elias Toufexias, Melina Kanakeredes, Jessica Henwick, and Chris Diamantopoulos.
Will there be a second season of Blood of Zeus?
The expected good news finally came. Netflix has renewed the series for a second season. Powerhouse Animation and Netflix announced this on Twitter on December 3, 2020. There is no trailer yet, but you can watch the teaser shared with the renewal news.
Release date of Blood of Zeus Season 2?
We want to say that the animation studio is very successful in its productions and can ensure the season’s continuity. As of June 24, 2022, at the time of writing, there is still no word yet on when the second season of Blood of Zeus will air on Netflix. It has been quite some time since the renewal announcement was made.
Studio Powerhouse has appeared in many Netflix animes. One of the most popular productions known, Castlevania, aired for four seasons and was followed by a huge fan base. On the other hand, they already have new upcoming projects agreed with Netflix. Animation adaptations such as Tomb Raider, Heaven’s Forest, and Skull Island were ordered by Netflix. The studio also recently announced more episodes for Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
The anime studio has managed to get renewals for many anime from Netflix. However, it seems that the studio has many projects in production and the production times of animations are long. The first season of Blood of Zeus took about 1.5 years to prepare. On the other hand, more than 2.5 years have passed since the second season announcement. However, we can predict that there may be many delays due to Covid-19 in this period. Nevertheless, considering the elapsed time, we think we will see an announcement soon. Estimates are that the anime will return to screens in early 2023.
Previously, the producers stated that they are targeting 5 seasons for Blood of Zeus. While this is good news, how Netflix directs producers is also important. In addition, a new season approval can be difficult in a loss of popularity. For now, viewers are lucky for a second season decision.
Blood of Zeus was one of the most interesting anime of 2020. The anime, which was among the most watched on Netflix in the week it was released, now has a strong search volume on Google. Although we can’t see it on Myanimelist because it doesn’t exactly meet the anime’s qualifications, we know that it has strong popularity worldwide and has the potential for long seasons.
