Netflix’s One Piece Live-Action Season 2 is coming soon, and there have already been plenty of casting and storyline predictions and teases about what’s next for Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates. In Netflix’s live-action show, all the focus is on Monkey D. Luffy and his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, which is based on the manga and anime One Piece. In the first season, Luffy got the gang together despite Zoro and Nami’s initial hesitations and set off to hunt for Gold Roger’s treasure, the One Piece.
Among the silliest superpowers ever created, there are pirates, strange creatures, and outlandish creatures in Luffy’s world. In spite of all that craziness, there are still lessons about friendship and standing up for what you believe in. The show’s themes will tug at your heartstrings even if you can’t get over the buffoonery. With One Piece being based on the manga and anime by Eiichiro Oda, there’s already plenty to discuss for the upcoming season. It is anticipated that One Piece Live-Action Season 2 will continue the plot of the manga’s East Blue Saga, which was the subject of the first season.

One Piece Live-Action Season 2 Updates
The most recent live-action One Piece season 2 announcement occurred in September 2023, when Netflix confirmed the show’s renewal. The assurance was given by none other than Eiichiro Oda personally (through an animatronic Den Den Mushi) via the official Netflix YouTube channel. Oda also hinted that Chopper, the Straw Hats’ Doctor, might debut in the second season. Readers of the anime and manga series are most enthusiastic about Chopper, who will be introduced during season 2 of One Piece, and it’s evident that Oda is aware of this.
Before announcing that season 2 is actually occurring, the writer of the original One Piece manga commended spectators of the live-action version for watching as well as the love the show garnered. The news that Netflix had renewed One Piece for the second season was met with ecstasy online, which is not surprising given how popular the first season was for the streaming service, with many observing that it was their first-ever successful live-action Anime translation.
One Piece Live-Action Season 2 Release Date
Netflix One Piece season 2 will not be available until late 2024 at the very latest. It is far more probable that the live-action One Piece will not be aired until 2025. One Piece producers Becky Clements as well as Marty Adelstein have indicated a 12-18 month release window beginning in September 2023, implying that One Piece season 2 might premiere around September 2024 and March 2025. Tomorrow Studio president Becky Clements and CEO Marty Adelstein disclosed to Variety immediately after the immensely popular debut of the first season that production on the next live-action One Piece season was already underway along with the fact there was even a conceivable release window. Tomorrow Studio is one of the three production firms behind Netflix’s live-action One Piece, & Clements and Adelstein are also credited as producers.
Adelstein indicated that screenplays for One Piece season 2 are complete, with Clements speculating that a delivery schedule of 12-18 months is likely. This would put the release date of One Piece season 2 anywhere between September 2024 and March 2025. However, shooting for the next season of the live-action One Piece cannot begin until the present-day WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes are settled. While the screenplays are supposedly ready, they were most likely completed prior to the WGA strike, and no changes or revisions may be made until the strikes are concluded.
One Piece Live-Action Season 2 Cast
The Netflix One Piece second season cast will primarily feature protagonists from the first season reprising their key roles. It is almost certain that the Straw Hat gang will return.
- Iaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy
- Mackenyu Arata plays Roronoa Zoro
- Emily Rudd plays Nami
- Jacob Romero Gibson portrays Usopp
- Taz Skylar plays Sanji
- Vincent Regan plays the role of Garp
- Morgan Davies plays as Koby
- Aidan Scott portrays the role of Helmeppo
- Armand Aucamp as Bogard
- Jeff Ward plays as Buggy
- Ilia Isorels Paulino as Alvida
All these characters are likely to return in One Piece Live-Action Season 2. For the second season of the live-action adaptation of One Piece, there will also be a number of new characters introduced. There has been no news of new One Piece characters in the season two cast. Chopper, Nico Robin, as well as Jinbe are still scheduled to become part of the crew in season 2 (though Jinbe’s entrance may be delayed until after the next season).
One Piece Live-Action Season 2 Plot
The initial season of One Piece covers a lot of ground, covering 100 chapters in only eight episodes. At that rate, Season Two will most likely follow the next story arc up to Chapter 218. The island of giants, the quest for a doctor to join the crew of the ship, & the fight against a criminal organisation of bounty hunters that is attempting to destabilise the desert nation of Arabasta await Luffy and his pals. It’s regarded as one of the most enjoyable arcs in One Piece, and it’s the first that really sets up the journey’s progression. There’s also a charming little talking reindeer named Chopper. According to Variety, scripts for a possible Season Two are already written. Despite the fact that production has been halted owing to the strike, Adelstein assured Deadline that they “have aspirations for 12 seasons.”
With approximately 1,080 chapters (and just about 100 covered thus far), the original material is undeniably present. “We have arrangements with [showrunner] Matt Owens regarding how we would split up the show into seasons, and I believe even if we did a total of six seasons, we would likely only use up 50% of the chapters of the manga,” Adelstein went on to say. In addition to the possibility of a new series being released within a year of any strike-ending negotiations, Becky Clements, president of the studio, hinted that the strike may keep going on for a long while. According to Clements, the show is likely to be ready for air within a year to 18 months. “During our follow-up calls after launch, we were repeatedly told our efforts exceeded standards, which is delightful.” Season Two is now available.
