One Piece Live Action Season 2: Everything You Need to Know

With the global success of the first season of One Piece live-action, the one question that is running through everyone’s minds is, “Will there be a Season 2?” Well, the second season of One Piece live-action is confirmed to be happening. If you have watched the first season, you’ll know that it ended with a new character tease, hinting at the beginning of an extraordinary adventure.

So, if you wish to learn all the details about One Piece live-action Season 2, we have listed everything we know so far about the upcoming season, including its rumored release date, cast, plot, leaks, and rumors.

The debut season of Netflix’s One Piece live action series has been well-received by fans and critics all over the world. Moreover, both long-time fans and newbies were able to enjoy the show equally, albeit with minor flaws (read about them in our One Piece live-action review).

However, the good thing that came out of this live-action show is that it successfully broke the anime adaptation curse that has been haunting every single manga adaptation for so long. For example – Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, Dragon Ball, and many others. But the success of Season 1 has given us hope for another season, and Netflix seems to be ready for it as well.

The huge success of the series automatically made the streaming giant give the green light for its second season. In an official tweet, Netflix has confirmed that the One Piece live-action series has been renewed for Season 2. Check out a personal message from Oda sensei right here:

One Piece Live Action Season 2 Production Status

Furthermore, Marty Adelstein, CEO of Tomorrow Studios, recently confirmed (via Variety) that the scripts for One Piece live-action second season are wrapped up and ready. The president of Tomorrow Studios Becky Clements revealed that Season 2 could be released as early as next year. She added, “Somewhere between a year and 18 months, we could be ready for air.”

The latest news regarding season 2 is that the shooting work is expected to begin in June 2024. This was further supported by Mackenyu Maeda aka Arata (who plays Roronoa Zoro) who accidentally mentioned in an interview that he will be heading to the US for season 2 shooting in the coming months. Thus, stay tuned for red-hot news arriving soon once the filming kicks off.

When Will One Piece Live Action Season 2 Release?

As mentioned above, the scripts are ready but might require some polish before the shooting kicks off. It took around 8 months to completely film the first season of One Piece live-action. So, with the filming expected to start in June 2024, Season 2 is speculated to be released sometime in early or mid-2025.

Keep in mind, that there is superhero fatigue ongoing in Hollywood, and we are seeing a lot more Japanese manga adaptations (with Naruto live-action announced recently).

Season 2 of Netflix’s One Piece live-action adaptation will also primarily focus on the Straw Hat Pirates exploring the perilous oceans and visiting new islands during their adventures to find the legendary One Piece treasure.

More importantly, you can also find Luffy recruiting some fresh new members for the crew as well. Since the first season adapted the East Blue Saga (excluding the Logue Town arc), we will get to see this arc (Manga chapters: 96-100, Anime episodes: 45-53) as the first to get a live-action adaptation in the next season.

After that, Season 2 will adapt the second saga of One Piece, the Arabasta Saga (Chapters: 101-217, Anime episodes: 62-135). The second season will potentially adapt the One Piece arcs in the order listed below:

  • Loguetown Arc (Manga chapters: 96-100, Anime episodes: 45-53)
  • Reverse Mountain Arc (Manga chapters: 101-105, Anime episodes: 62 & 63)
  • Whisky Peak Arc (Manga chapters: 106-114, Anime episodes: 64-67)
  • Koby and Helmeppo Arc (Manga chapters: 83-119 , Anime episodes: 68 & 69) – already adapted in Season 1
  • Little Garden Arc (Manga chapters: 115-129, Anime episodes: 70-77)
  • Drum Island Arc (Manga chapters:130-154, Anime episodes: 78-91)
  • Arabasta Arc (Manga chapters: 155-217, Anime episodes: 92-135)
