Blood of Zeus season 2 release date, plot, cast, and more news

Hades is ready for war ahead of the Blood of Zeus season 2 release date, and we've consulted the gods about what's next for the series.

Blood of Zeus release date:

When is the Blood of Zeus season 2 release date? Netflix has called upon the might of Olympus, and the gods have responded with a brand new second season of the hit animated series.

Blood of Zeus is a fantastic Netflix anime that initially follows Heron, son of Zeus. But by the end of the first season, the narrative had become considerably bigger. It seems like one of the best animated series is primed to become a more expansive take on the oft-depicted gods, and with a second season of the fantasy series on the way, here’s what you need to know about the anime’s return.

The release date was announced along with a brand new teaser trailer that dropped in November 2023. Since the second season was initially announced back in December 2020, it’s been a long time coming for us fans to finally get a glimpse of the newest installment. That said, good things are often worth the wait.

Who’s in the Blood of Zeus season 2 cast?

We expect most, if not all, of the established Blood of Zeus cast to return for season 2.

That means Derek Phillips, Jason O’Mara, Claudia Christian, and Elias Toufexis are in the lead roles, complemented by a cohort of co-stars.

  • Derek Phillips as Heron
  • Elias Toufexis as Seraphim
  • Claudia Christian as Hera
  • Jason O’Mara as Zeus/Elias
  • Chris Diamantopoulos as Evios/Poseidon
  • Mamie Gummer as Electra
  • Melina Kanakaredes as Ariana
  • Jessica Henwick as Alexia
  • Matthew Mercer as Hermes
  • Adam Croasdell as Apollo/Hephaestus
  • Adetokumboh M’Cormack as Kofi
  • Danny Jacobs as King Periander/King Acrisius
  • Matt Lowe as Ares
  • Fred Tatasciore as Hades

What is Blood of Zeus season 2 about?

The Blood of Zeus season 2 plot will focus on the story of the three brothers Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon, according to Charley Parlapanides.

“Fundamentally, season 1 is about Heron and Seraphim, and their stories continue in season 2,” he said. “But we have a 20-page outline for season 2, and it’s very much a story of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon. The three brothers.”

Since the main arc of the brothers revolves around their dividing up their father’s realm — with Hades famously claiming the underworld — the second season is sure to dive in to this part of the mythology. Essentially, it could all get a little dicey between the trio.

Parlapanides added there’s a five-season plan, so we should get more if the show remains popular. That much is in the hands of the fates and our viewership.

Is there a trailer for Blood of Zeus season 2?

Thankfully, a first-look trailer was released on November 10, 2023, and gave us a glimpse of what we can expect from the continuation.

You can watch it for yourself below. It’s pretty fiery, and shows that we’ll be hitting some emotional turmoil come the return of the series. Needless to say, Heron’s going through it.
