Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece has been met with favorable reviews since the series was released on August 31. This is in no small part because series creator Eiichiro Oda worked hand in hand with Netflix and Tomorrow studios to ensure the stories of the Straw Hat Crew were recreated as faithfully as possible.
Today, the official One Piece Netflix account had a special message to share with fans from Oda himself. The video itself is brief and begins with Oda talking about the work it took for the series to be made and thanking new and old fans for supporting it. Then, Oda confirmed that Netflix had reached out, ensuring that a second season would be greenlit for production.
There is no release date for the second series to drop on the popular streaming platform, but Oda did tease how far the next season could adapt from the anime and manga. As the video is ending, Oda mentions that the Straw Hat Crew is going to need a doctor soon, ending on a speed drawing of Tony Tony Chopper, the crew’s doctor in the anime.
This hints that season 2 will adapt to the Drum Island arc, where Chopper is recruited to join the crew. No more details were shared, but fans can look forward to seeing designs for the live-action version of Chopper. In the meantime, it’s a perfect chance to catch up on the first nine episodes of the series streaming now on Netflix.
Check out the announcement below, featuring series creator Eiichiro Oda.
