One Piece will take to the high seas again at Netflix, so don your straw hats and pack your seabags!
The streaming service officially renewed the hit adaptation on Thursday afternoon.
The exciting renewal news comes just two weeks on from its series premiere.
Eiichiro Oda, One Piece Creator, Illustrator, and Executive Producer, said in a transcript from Oda-Sensei’s video message, aka a Transponder Snail:
To the Straw Hat Grand Fleet: What did you think of Season 1 of the live-action ONE PIECE?
I spent a long time working on it with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios.
It seems people around the world have been enjoying the show, which makes the hard work from the production team truly worth it. To everyone who’s been a fan of ONE PIECE for years, and to those who experienced ONE PIECE for the first time, thank you so much.
Two weeks after the launch, I just received some great news. Netflix has decided to renew the show! The adventures of Iñaki and the live-action Straw Hats will continue onward! It’ll still take a while to get the scripts ready, so please be patient.
From here on, it seems to me the Straw Hats will need a great doctor… We will see!
