A young hero, an ancient bloodline, and the war of the Gods all clash in mythological action animation ‘Blood of Zeus’. The highly anticipated series will be released on Netflix on October 27th.
Originally titled Gods & Heroes, the anime follows a young man known as Heron. After he’s cast aside from his people Heron learns that he’s the illegitimate son of Zeus. This new hero becomes the only one capable of saving the Heavens and the Earth and defeating the demons that threaten to enslave everything. But can he save his world before a goddess who wants him dead has her way?
‘Blood of Zeus’ was created by brothers Charley and Vlas Parlapanides.

“In Gods & Heroes we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of,” creators Vlas and Charley said.
‘Blood of Zeus’ features some familiar voices including Derek Phillips, Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer, Elias Toufexis, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jessica Henwick, Claudia Christian and Melina Kanakaredes.
“The traditions of global mythology and folklore are fertile ground for anime projects and we are excited to explore the epic settings and characters of Greek mythology in our new series, Gods & Heroes,” said John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix. “Charley and Vlas have an outstanding track record of telling gripping stories set in fantastical worlds and we are thrilled to bring their unique vision for the Gods of Mount Olympus to Netflix members around the world.”
