Blood Of Zeus skyrocketed its way to Netflix's Top 10 in less than a week since its release. Will the success serve as a go signal for season 2?
Blood of Zeus has just released on Netflix, but the animated series' spectacular performance on the platform already had us wondering about a follow-up season.
The series is created by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides and produced by Powerhouse Animation Studios, the same studio behind other popular Originals such as Castlevania and Seis Manos.
Blood of Zeus follows Heron, the demigod son of Zeus, as he tries to save Olympus and Earth from the wrath of his half brother's demonic army.
The series dropped on Netflix on October 27, 2020, and has since made waves globally.
After a highly successful season 1, let's find out what's next for the series.
As of this writing, Netflix is yet to renew Blood of Zeus for season 2. The animated series is still on its first week on the streaming platform, so we're likely not going to hear about its renewal in the upcoming weeks or even months yet.
As you may already know, Netflix often takes a closer look at a show's performance on its platform within the first 30 days of its release.
Fortunately, the show's current performance made us believe that there's a bright future for the series on the platform.
In less than a week, the anime series managed to enter Netflix's top 10 lists in different regions worldwide. Blood of Zeus made it to third in the US Top ten list, sitting next to The Queen's Gambit and The Haunting Of Bly Manor, respectively.
Season 1's intense finale left us pondering about what's likely to happen in season 2.
There's a question regarding Seraphim's fate after Hades requires him to kneel to him to avoid his horrible fate of living in the Underworld. With Seraphim left with no choice but to serve the dangerous and ambitious Hades, Heron and the other Gods of Olympus are indeed in trouble.
However, with Seraphim's arrogant and ambitious nature, he'll indeed find a way to get away from Hade's grasp.
Another question is who will lead the Gods of Olympus after Zeus sacrificed himself to save Hera from the giants' wrath. After Zeus' death, the Gods of Olympus are left without a ruler.
The succeeding episodes, however, tell us that his son, Heron, will likely take over his place as the new leader. Heron used the same powers as Zeus to defeat his brother Seraphim in a battle, making us believe Heron's likely to follow the same path as his father.
Lastly, we're wondering what would happen to Hera. The Goddess is yet to be seen after the epic battle between the Gods and the Giants. While Zeus' sacrifice may convince her to return to Mount Olympus, we're uncertain if the other Gods will welcome her.
And how will she feel about seeing Heron, Zeus' bastard son, rose to the ranks? Will she learn to accept him?
Season 2 will surely be exciting.
It will surely be a while before we could see Blood of Zeus season 2. Animation projects take a long time to produce. We first heard about the series in March 2019 announcement. However, it took more than a year before Blood of Zeus finally dropped on Netflix.
Unless work for season 2 has already begun, we're likely to wait until 2022 before seeing Blood of Zeus again.
