Shows on fantasy make us all dwell in a new world at the convenience of our bedroom. Pirates of the Caribbean taught us newer versions of what pirates could look like, with a humanitarian touch to it. Another fantasy show that gives us a real portrayal would be One Piece, which premiered on Netflix.
With the possibility of being canceled, fans wonder if there are any hopes for renewal. Here is One Piece Season 2 and the hopes for renewal.
One Piece Season 2: Is there any hope for renewal?
Yes. The show is going to be back as the makers have officially commented on a possibility of season 2, as it has been ready and is in the process of being ready to air within a year once production begins. The CEO of Tomorrow Studios Marty Aldestein is involved in the production of live-action sequences for the show along with publisher Shueisha and Eiichiro Oda, a manga creator. Marty comments, “We’ve got scripts ready,”
Expected Release Date of One Piece Season 2:
The show is expected to begin production post-SAG AFTRA strike against AMPTP. Becky Clements, the President of Tomorrow Studios, hints at a release as early as next year. “Realistically, hopefully, a year away, if we move very quickly, and that is a possibility,” Clements said. “Somewhere between a year and 18 months, we could be ready for air.”
However Netflix has not commented anything as they are still working out their options on how to make the show work. Marty comments, and we quote, “I think (Netflix is)looking at various situations about how many episodes they do, do they break them up?” He adds, “I think they’re trying to figure that out this week. I suspect we’ll hear from them in the next week to two weeks. There seems to be a big impetus to keep this going and to come up with a long-term strategy. So we’re just waiting for that.”
His expectations from viewers from the new season remain;
“I think what it would need to do, and it’s been doing, is broadening out,” He adds “We’re getting a lot of family viewing and that is really the key, is to bring in the non-fans and people who aren’t aware of the IP because the show stands on its own and you get people to watch it and people really love it.”
Expected Cast of One Piece Season 2:
The same cast can be expected to return for season 2,
- Inaki Godboy as Monkey D Luffy
- Emily Rudd as Nami
- Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro
- Taz Skylar as Sanji
- Peter Gadiot as Shanks
- Morgan Davies as Koby
Expected Plot of One Piece Season 2:
The show will carry off from where it left in season one. It would see the quest to conquer the Blue Sea, the quest for famed ‘One Piece’ and the adventures of Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy’s team. Would they conquer the Blue Sea?
