One Piece proves unstoppable as Eiichiro Oda announces Season 2 for Netflix adaptation

Rejoice nakama’s! Netflix's live-action adaptation of the beloved manga and anime series, has been making waves and garnered a dedicated fan base eagerly awaiting news about the possibility of a second season. Now, the exciting news has arrived – Netflix has officially greenlit One Piece Season 2, and the announcement comes with the blessings of  the Pirate King, Eiichiro Oda-san himself.



In a tweet that made the seas tremble with excitement, Netflix dropped the bombshell that fans have been eagerly waiting for.

  • Eiichiro Oda, the genius behind the One Piece universe, shared the news with a touch of pirate flair, and fans from all corners of the Grand Line rejoiced.

With the help of his office Den Den Mushi (Transponder Snail), his message was a heartfelt expression of gratitude to both long-time One Piece enthusiasts and those who had just embarked on this epic pirate journey. 

“To everyone who’s been a fan of One Piece for years, and to those who experienced One Piece for the first time, thank you so much. Two weeks after the launch, I just received some great news…Netflix has decided to renew the show,”

12-season run?

Netflix's One Piece has dominated Netflix's viewership charts for two weeks in a row, with a 19.2 million second-week viewership count surpassing the likes of heavy-hitters Stranger Things and Wednesday.

The executive producers, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, have grand plans for this treasure trove of a series. They're not just dipping their toes into the ocean; they're diving in headfirst with dreams of twelve seasons! 


What makes this news truly worthwhile is that Oda himself has been sailing alongside the crew. He's been more involved than a ship's captain, personally approving every aspect of the series. He even delayed production to make sure everything was shipshape and ensuring that it aligns seamlessly with his original vision. 

  • While the announcement of a second season is a testament to the show's tremendous success, it also reflects the dedication of everyone involved in its creation.
  • While the exact release date for Season 2 remains undisclosed, fans can rest assured that the series is in good hands. 

What truly excites fans is the prospect of multiple seasons, with discussions already reaching as far as Season 6.

  • While nothing beyond Season 2 has been officially confirmed, the overwhelming success of the debut season and reports of a completed script for Season 2 suggest a bright future for the series.

What's in store for the Straw Hats?

Season 2 promises to be as exciting as navigating the treacherous waters of the Grand Line. We're talking Tony Tony Chopper's debut, who, if you're not familiar, is a talking reindeer with a medical degree. Plus, we'll be diving into the enigmatic Baroque Works organisation who were teased in the first season.

According to Tomorrow Studios executives, we might be setting sail again in about 18 months.  

  • However, it's important to note that the road ahead may be somewhat uncertain. Hollywood's ongoing labour strikes and the absence of a concrete production timeline create some ambiguity about when viewers might witness Luffy and his crew's next adventures.
  • Nevertheless, given how the first season merely scratched the surface of the source material, fans can expect a wealth of inspiration for the creative team to draw from as they embark on the journey ahead.

With a dedicated creative team, a visionary approach, and Oda's active involvement, the future of the series appears promising.

As fans eagerly await further updates and the eventual release of Season 2, the world of One Piece continues to expand, inviting both new and longtime fans to join the grand adventure across the Grand Line.
