Created by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides in collaboration with Powerhouse Animation Studios, the production house behind ‘Castlevania’, ‘Blood of Zeus’ tells the story of a young man named Heron, who grows up believing that he is a bastard. But when the world faces an unprecedented danger, his real identity is revealed. He is the son of none other than the king of the gods himself, Zeus. Heron subsequently embarks on an incredible journey.

He completes quests, acquires magical and divine weapons, and fights an even more diverse set of monsters than what originally is in Greek mythology. The series has an ensemble voice cast, including Derek Phillips as Heron, Jessica Henwick as Alexia, Claudia Christian as Hera, Elias Toufexis as Seraphim, and Jason O’Mara as Zeus. If you are already done binging the first season and are wondering about ‘Blood of Zeus’ season 2, this is the article for you.

Blood of Zeus Season 2 Release Date

‘Blood of Zeus’ season 1 premiered on October 27, 2020, on Netflix. It consists of eight episodes, with a runtime of 25-37 minutes each.

As for ‘Blood of Zeus’ season 2, here is what we know. Greek mythology is arguably the most influential collection of stories, poems, and legends in the history of human civilization. In the past few millennia, it has served as the source of inspiration for countless works of literature, art, entertainment, and music. ‘Blood of Zeus’ is one of the latest additions to this astounding legacy.

Time and again, Netflix has shown that they are willing to invest in good animated content. Considering how incredibly well-made the inaugural season of ‘Blood of Zeus’ is and the rave reviews it has been receiving, it is only a matter of time before Netflix renews the series. Once that happens, we expect ‘Blood of Zeus’ season 2 to release sometime in late 2021.

Blood of Zeus Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?

Although Heron didn’t know it, his divine father has been on his side since he was very young, disguised as an old man who took care of him and his mother. But when he finally learns who he is, it puts him and his mother on the receiving end of the wrath of Zeus’ wife, Hera. In the season finale, Zeus and the gods belonging to his faction prepares for war along with Heron and his friends. Elsewhere, Hera releases the giants from their watery prison and gains control over them.

During the battle, Heron manages to pull the cauldron out of Hera’s protection, which leads to giants attacking her. Zeus uses all of his energy to save his wife. Heron fights his half-twin through his mother, Seraphim, and when his father’s powers manifest in him, he emerges victorious. He then reverses the spell on the cauldron, pulling all the energies of the giants back inside it. The series ends with Heron in Olympus and Seraphim in Hades. The latter is approached by the titular god, who tells him that he can have an easy life in his realm if he kneels before him, making Seraphim realize that the gods aren’t done with him.

With the introduction of Hades this late in the season, there is a possibility that he might serve as the primary antagonist of the next. We might see a very different Hera in season 2, someone who is kinder and less conniving. There are hints about a romantic relationship between Heron and Alexia sprinkled throughout the first season. In the second, it might get some screen time. Season 2 might also focus on how Heron is getting used to the powers he inherited from his father.
