‘One Piece’ Producer Confirms Season 2 Scripts Are Ready

Sadly, we still don’t have an official announcement from Netflix that a second season will indeed happen. The initial numbers are a promising start for this adaptation, but with the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strike, it’s unclear if work ever was done on a potential second season but a WGA listing some time ago already hinted that work may have started on the scripts, which isn’t uncommon to start production as fast as possible.

Now, we have a confirmation by Tomorrow Studios CEO, Marty Adelstein, that they do have the script ready for a second season. Not only that but producer Becky Clements believes that once the strike ends, they could have it all wrapped up to publish within a year or 18 months. That would be a good turnaround but is halted by the lack of an official announcement and companies not paying actors and writers what they are owed.

We’ve got scripts ready. Realistically, hopefully, a year away, if we move very quickly, and that is a possibility. Somewhere between a year and 18 months, we could be ready for air.

The show opened to the top spot with 18.5M in its first four days and word-of-mouth seems quite strong going by its Social Media performance, as well as positive critical reception. Of course, quality doesn’t always mean they will renew it but the series has the challenge to remain a top performer in the upcoming weeks. Adelstein

They keep it, as you know, close to the vest until post-launch. But with Netflix’s support of the title, we expected it to be number one and we sensed their research and algorithms probably saw the possibility for that. But in our subsequent calls post-launch, we have been told that we have exceeded expectations, which is also fantastic.

If they “exceeded expectations” it’s a good sign that the show is doing well. So, the upcoming weeks will be crucial as they’ll show the series’ growing power as a series that could also give them hope for future seasons. Who knows if a second-season renewal was initially in the plans early before the strike happened, but that’s just wishful thinking. We’ll just have to wait a bit until we know what the future has in store fo the future live-action king of the pirates.
