The Thai series adaptation of “One Piece” on Netflix has received a very positive response from viewers. It has not been announced yet whether there will be a season 2, but the producers have stated that the script for season 2 has been completed and the next season may be ready to air within 12-18 months after the start of production.
In an interview with Variety, Marty Adelstein, the CEO of Tomorrow Studios, the production company behind the live-action adaptation of “One Piece,” revealed that the script for season 2 is ready. If the production process goes smoothly, it is possible that season 2 could be released in another 12-18 months after filming begins. Adelstein believes that Netflix is likely waiting to see the trends and various factors in the long term before approving the production of season 2.
Becky Clements, the President of Tomorrow Studios, added that there is currently a major factor affecting production, which is the work stoppage due to SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) protests. This may further delay the creation of season 2.
At the moment, season 2 of “One Piece” has not yet been approved by Netflix, but the series has shown promising signs. The first season ranked number 1 on Netflix in multiple countries during its premiere week and garnered up to 18.5 million views.
