Live-Action ‘One Piece’ Adds New Showrunner

Here’s a surprise, it looks like Matt Owens has a new co-showrunner going into the second season of Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece. After a strong showing in its first season and critical acclaim, there’s been quite a bit of silence on the project since they are preparing to start production on the next season. Rumors are hinting at a June production start, but we still have no updates on who might be joining the cast.

As first shared by @OP_Netflix_Fan, they noticed that the Writing Guild of America site has updated the page for the second season which now includes Joseph E. Tracz as showrunner alongside Matt Owens, who has been part of its creation. What stands out is that Steven Maeda is no longer involved with the project after having been the showrunner in the first season. He’s also an Executive Producer on the series moving forward.

Tracz has worked on a variety of series in the past. He was the showrunner of the Netflix romance Dash & Lily. He’s also worked on series like Lights Out, the recent Disney+ adaptation of Percy Jackson and the Olympians as well as A Series of Unfortunate Events, one of the first major adaptations for Netflix. For the latter, he also was involved with the series finale
