Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece Season 1 received a fantastic response from fans and critics. Netflix’s live-action of One Piece made its debut on August 30, achieving something that many thought was extremely challenging. One Piece is known for being one of the longest-running manga and anime series ever, which makes adapting it a daunting job. It’s considered one of the best anime/manga adaptations ever made. The first season mainly focused on the East Blue Saga, where Monkey D. Luffy, played by Iñaki Godoy, forms an epic pirate crew to find the One Piece treasure. Netflix has officially announced One Piece Season 2 with a hint of chopper in new series.

Netflix hasn’t always done a great job when it comes to turning anime into live-action shows. Yet, the live-action One Piece show has surprised everyone with its success. It’s been smashing Netflix’s viewership records and got an impressive 84% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Both long-time fans of One Piece and people new to the series have been loving it, which is pretty amazing.

Netflix’s One Piece Season 2 is set to Release in year 2025

Marty Adelstein, the CEO of Tomorrow Studios, which works on the live-action “One Piece” series with manga creator Eiichiro Oda and publisher Shueisha, mentioned that they have scripts ready for a second season. However, they can’t start making it until the strike involving SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP is resolved. But once the issue is solved, they believe One piece Season 2 could come out as soon as next year.

Since July 14, 2023, there’s been an ongoing strike by the American actors’ union, SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists). They’re on strike because they’re having a disagreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) about labor-related issues.

In a practical scenario, and if everything goes smoothly, we might see Netflix’s One Piece Season 2 in about a year. However, it could take a bit longer, maybe around a 12 to 18 months, to get everything ready for release, according to Clements. So, we can figure out that Netflix’s Live action of One piece season 2 will be released at the end of 2024 or start of 2025. There hasn’t been an official confirmation for a second season of the One Piece live-action series yet. Lets just hope the dispute between those parties gets solved and production work of One piece live action season 2 starts as soon as possible.

Netflix’s ‘One Piece’ season 2 plot details revealed

Season 2 will likely be exploring the Arabasta Saga

If Netflix’s One Piece sticks to the original anime and manga storyline, Season 2 might delve into the Arabasta Saga. In this part of the story, Luffy and his crew venture into the Grand Line and get involved in helping a princess reclaim her homeland. The main antagonists here are a secretive criminal group called Baroque Works, which we actually got a glimpse of in Season 1.

In the live-action adaptation, Roronoa Zoro, the skilled swordsman, encounters a Baroque Works assassin named Mr. 7 during a meditation session. They have a showdown, and Zoro defeats Mr. 7. This particular encounter isn’t in the anime but helps explain how Zoro becomes aware of Baroque Works before the Arabasta Saga.

Baroque Works has a ranking system for its male agents, numbered from 0 to 13, with 0 being the highest rank. They usually work in pairs, one male and one female, but Mr. 7 tried to recruit Zoro alone. Mr. 0 plays a significant role in the Arabasta Saga, so it’s likely we’ll see more of this organization’s hierarchy and their plans in Season 2.

Buggy and Alvida Team Up For Revenge

One of the standout characters in Netflix’s One Piece is Captain Buggy the Clown, played by Jeff Ward. He has a more prominent role in the live-action series during the East Blue arc compared to the anime. However, Buggy’s character will come back for revenge in the Lougetown Arc. But before that, he forms an alliance with another villain we met earlier in the story.

The first pirate captain Luffy defeats in One Piece is Captain Alvida, played by Ilia Isorelýs Paulino. She sees herself as the ultimate pirate captain. In the anime, Alvida discovers a special fruit called the Smooth-Smooth Fruit after her battle with Luffy. This fruit transforms her appearance and gives her incredibly smooth skin that repels projectiles.

Buggy and Alvida both share the experience of being defeated by the Straw Hat Pirates, which creates a connection between them. They decide to team up and seek revenge on Monkey D. Luffy. With their new Devil Fruit powers, they aim to take down Luffy even before he reaches the Grand Line. The One Piece series hints at their alliance, but it doesn’t confirm whether Alvida has acquired the Smooth-Smooth Fruit yet.

Smoker is Ready To Hunt the Straw Hats

Netflix’s One Piece Season 1 ends with a teaser before the credits, introducing a well-known One Piece antagonist. In this scene, we see a man with spiky hair in a smoky room, setting fire to Luffy’s new wanted poster with his cigar. The distinct look, including bleached hair, two cigars, and the smoky atmosphere, unmistakably identifies him as Captain Smoker.

Captain Smoker is the leader of the Marine forces in Lougetown, the same place where Pirate King Gold D. Roger was executed years ago. A younger version of Smoker, played by Matthew Leck, was present at that historic event, and you can spot him in the Netflix show’s prologue. What makes Smoker unique among Marine captains is that, like Luffy, he has consumed a Devil Fruit. However, instead of gaining stretchy powers, Smoker can transform his body into pure smoke, using this ability to creatively defeat pirate troublemakers.

Smoker isn’t just a one-time obstacle for Luffy and the Straw Hat Crew. After their initial encounter, he becomes a relentless pursuer of the heroic pirates, even willing to follow them into the perilous waters of the Grand Line.

Straw Hat’s Sixth Crew Member Tony Tony Chopper

While Netflix’s One Piece Season 1 doesn’t directly hint at it, Season 2 is likely to introduce a beloved character to the Straw Hat crew – Tony Tony Chopper, an anthropomorphic reindeer who happens to be a doctor. Adapting Chopper for live-action is a challenge because, well, he’s a talking reindeer doctor, which is quite whimsical compared to what we’ve seen so far in the series. Additionally, he’ll probably be created using computer-generated effects in a show that relies mostly on practical effects.

Is it impossible to bring Chopper to life? No, but it’s definitely tricky. If done well, Tony Tony Chopper could become a lovable, cuddly creature much like Baby Yoda. But if not done right, it could end up looking unsettling. However, there’s a potential silver lining for Chopper’s live-action debut. Jamie Lee Curtis, an Academy Award-winning actress and a passionate One Piece fan, has shown interest in joining the cast as Chopper’s mentor, Kureha. It’s an opportunity Netflix shouldn’t miss.
