Warning: This post includes spoilers for Netflix’s live-action adjustment of One Piece.
AT LONG LAST, Netflix’s live-action adjustment of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece is formally here. After it was initially revealed in 2017, the very first 8 episodes of the program just recently struck the streaming service, offering all sort of experiences as Monkey D. Luffy (Iñaki Godoy) starts his legendary mission to discover the renowned One Piece treasure and end up being King of the Pirates.
The very first season provides on its guarantee of grand missions, impressive battle scenes, remarkable characters, and renowned minutes from the profoundly popular manga and anime. Far from the flop that was Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop, One Piece seems like it’s bound to end up being a breakout hit for the service that handles to cultivate brand-new fans and measure up to the sky-high expectations of existing fans.
Those who follow One Piece carefully understand that Luffy’s experiences are simply starting; at this moment in the story, there are over 1,000 episodes of the manga and the anime– so we’ve got a long method to go. Oda’s source product supplies, well, an useful map of where we’re headed in the future. Here’s whatever we understand about Season 2 of Netflix’s One Piece.
Will There Be a Season 2 of One Piece?
Short response: Probably. Long response: We’re in the middle of a comprehensive double strike for both the Writers Guild and the Screen Actors Guild, so any production on Season 2 will not start till both of those concerns are fixed. With episodes reported to cost around $18 million dollars per episode(to compare, Game of Thrones had a production budget plan of around $15 million per episode in its last season), it’s quickly the most pricey Netflix production to date. That’s a substantial financial investment to leave, specifically thinking about the majority of the South African sets for the program are all useful– down to things like the deck of the Going Merry, Luffy’s ship.
One Piece is the world’s very popular manga and the very popular comic series by volume, while the anime is no-slouch in regards to its appeal, so there’s definitely an integrated audience for the program. If the series is gotten well by fans and basic audiences alike, we’ll likely see a sophomore season renewal in brief order.
When Will Season 2 of One Piece Come Out?

We’ll require to wait up until the writing is total and production on Season 2 is completed. Thinking about recording for Season 1 took about 9 months and after that another year for post-production, it’ll most likely be a minimum of 2 years prior to Season 2 shows up as soon as the strikes are fixed.
What Could Season 2 of One Piece Be About?
The concluding minutes of the Season 1 ending provided a quite clear insight regarding what we’ll see next season. As the team set off for the Grand Line, Buggy (Jeff Ward) and Alvida (Ilia Isorelýs Paulino), both humiliated by Luffy, apparently sign up with forces in their pursuit of our lead character. The most significant tease comes from a quick post-credits scene that presents a brand-new enemy. SPOILER ALERT: Tried and real One Piece fans will acknowledge the double stogies as the signature of Captain Smoker, a dogged Marine who currently has Luffy on his radar.
The program’s very first season covered the very first 4 arcs of the manga, so if we see approximately the exact same for Season 2, we’ll likely participate in what’s referred to as the Arabasta Saga. Even if we do not reach that point, prepare for that this 2nd getaway will see the Straw Hats continue to come throughout enemies and pals, both old and brand-new, in their pursuit of the Grand Line and the well known One Piece.
Who Will Be in Season 2 of One Piece?
In addition to the complete cast– Godoy as Luffy, Mackenyu as Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, Taz Skylar as Sanji, Vincent Regan as Garp, Morgan Davies as Koby, and Aidan Scott as Helmeppo– expect to see Jeff Ward and Ilia Isorelýs Paulino back as Buggy and Alvida, respectively. Peter Gadiot’s Shanks will be around, considering we saw him at the end together with Steven Ward’s Mihawk, who must likewise return.
Depending on the number of arcs the season will cover, there will likewise be lots of brand-new faces, consisting of the formerly pointed out Smoker, who will be among the very first brand-new characters we’ll discover whenever One Piece‘s 2nd season ultimately sets sail.
