One Piece Season 2 Teases Start of Production

One Piece Season 2 Teases Start of Production

The first season of the live-action One Piece had covered the major events of the East Blue Saga and now Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hats are headed to the Grand Line. Just in, Netflix has released an official video to mark the start of production with the main cast.

Check this out:

Besides the main cast that will be coming back, the show has also announced new faces for the second season including David Dastmalchian, Julia Rehwald, Camrus Johnson, and Callum Kerr.

With East Blue out of the way, the second season of One Piece is expected to cover the Alabasta arc. Oddly enough, that arc does have a lot of similarities with the story of Frank Herbert’s Dune. The story takes place in a mostly dry and desert location. There are multiple giant creatures that roam the desert (sandworms), water is scarce, and there is a struggle for a substance that has special properties called Dance Powder (spice melange).

Admittedly, a lot of fans were expecting One Piece to flop like other Netflix anime adaptations, but it somehow managed to become a hit when it released. I mean, it isn’t perfect, but the casting is great, and the action is definitely entertaining. Hopefully Season 2 has more budget for Luffy’s powers because it can be too obvious that the action scenes are mostly being relegated to Sanji and Zoro whose fighting isn’t so CG-dependent.

No specific release date has been set for Season 2 of One Piece, but we should expect it to come out sometime next year.
