Eiichiro Oda’s classic manga turned-anime series is expected to last many seasons spanning multiple years over at Netflix.
It’s a known fact that plans for a second season were always the goal over at Netflix, however, with the ongoing strikes preventing development on the scripts and/or filming to commence, it’s been unclear as to when season two’s release would be.
Despite the strikes causing indefinite delays on projects such as the live-action One Piece, series producers’ latest update may give fans some relief, see below.
When Does One Piece Season 2 Come Out?
Tomorrow Studios CEO and live-action One Piece series producer Marty Adelstein confirmed with Variety on Thursday, September 7 that they have the “scripts ready” for season two.
This essentially means that despite the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, production on the second season should be able to get going fairly quickly once the strikes come to a reasonable resolution with the AMPTP.
President of Tomorrow Studios Becky Clements confirmed with Variety just that, saying that once the strikes resolve, they could potentially launch episodes as early as next year.
“Realistically, hopefully, a year away, if we move very quickly, and that is a possibility,” Clements told Variety.
Clements continued to reveal the first potential release window for One Piece season two, as she told Variety that “somewhere between a year and 18 months, we could be ready for air.”
Netflix’s One Piece season 2 has not yet got a solid release date but its producers reckon a 2024 release window could be likely depending on when the strikes end.
