Will there be a second season of One Piece on Netflix?
In interview with Variety, becky clementsthe president of Tomorrow Studios, one of the production companies that worked on one piece, revealed that the scripts for a second season are ready, so they are just waiting for the green light from Netflix to start pre-production and for the actors’ work stoppage to end. In fact, he estimates that once the performers can return to the set, it would take a maximum of a year and a half to release a new installment with all these characters from the acclaimed show:
We have the scripts ready. Realistically, we’re a year away, if we move quickly, and that’s a possibility. It could take anywhere from a year to 18 months to get back on the air. They (Netflix) keep them (view numbers) glued to their chests until after launch. But in subsequent communications, we’ve been told that it has exceeded expectations, which is fantastic.
As you know, One Piece – 90% is the story of Luffy, a young man determined to find a mythical treasure that will make him the King of the Pirates. And for that, he must enlist his own crew. Conforming to the group is one of the main points of this first season, in which he meets different characters that he decides to add to his team. The protagonist is played by the Mexican Iñaki Godoy.

Although expectations remain low, and that will help somewhat, it will be interesting to see if the platform can score two goals in a row and thus regain some of its reputation for this kind of project.

In any case, it will be an eventual challenge for live-action to find a way to conclude the series, since only a handful of shows have been able to extend beyond eight seasons without losing their viewers.
Either way, it’s likely that Netflix won’t be far from confirming plans for a second season of One Piece – 90% It is rather difficult to try to guess when the studios and the Hollywood unions will be able to reach an agreement, since the negotiations have not continued for the actors and recent delays indicate that the big companies are not interested in giving in before the end of the year. We will have to be patient before setting sail again with Luffy and company.
