Eiichiro Oda’s Message to Fans
In the renewal confirmation video, Eiichiro Oda expressed his appreciation to the Straw Hat Grand Fleet for their reception of Season 1 of the live-action One Piece. He conveyed heartfelt gratitude to fans who have followed One Piece for years, as well as those who recently embarked on the thrilling journey for the first time.

However, Oda humorously hinted at future challenges for the Straw Hat crew, suggesting the need for a skilled doctor in the upcoming season. While the specific episode count for Season 2 and further story details remain undisclosed, fans can anticipate more epic adventures on the horizon.
Season 2 Format and Production Insights
Netflix’s renewal announcement intriguingly avoids the term “season 2,” similar to how they approached the renewal of “The Sandman” for “more episodes.” This implies that while fans can expect a new season, the format and structure might deviate from traditional season models. Possibilities include standalone story episodes, movies, or a different format altogether. Until additional information is released, it will be simply referred to as Season 2.
The prospects of Season 2 have seemed promising, thanks to the show’s solid performance. Marty Adelstein, CEO of Tomorrow Studios, indicated that scripts are ready, and if production commences swiftly, fans could enjoy the new season within 12 to 18 months. The production timeline may be influenced by ongoing strikes, including the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, which may not be resolved until 2024.

This moment effectively divides the One Piece narrative into two distinct phases: the “Sea of Survival: Super Rookies Saga” and “The Final Sea: The New World Saga.”
