“One Piece” Showrunner On Season 2 Plans


Although the numbers aren’t out but, Netflix’s live-action “One Piece” adaptation has been a hit, going by the evaluations at the least. The sequence has racked up an 83% with critics and a 95% viewers rating on Rotten Tomatoes to this point.

Matt Owens and Steven Maeda served as showrunners on the sequence with heavy enter and approvals from the franchise’s creator Eiichiro Oda. In a brand new interview with Selection, Maeda was requested if he and Owens have deliberate out a second season.

Netflix hasn’t made any selections concerning one other season but, but it surely’s not for lack of supply materials with a long time value of Oda’s ongoing manga out there – to not point out properly over 1,000 episodes of the anime.

He says, for now, they’re simply coping with having delivered the primary season efficiently and so haven’t appeared that far forward but:

“It’s a worthwhile ask — and solutions shall be forthcoming. I don’t need to converse on the continuation of ‘One Piece’ at this time limit. Simply because this primary season was such a bear. It was a beautiful problem, but it surely took years out of our lives, and I need to actually let the main target be on that for the launch.”

The eight-episode first season reportedly adapts roughly the primary 100 chapters of the manga, many of the ‘East Blue’ manga saga. The general manga presently clocks in at over 1,000 chapters as of final month.

Ought to the viewing numbers be sturdy, count on renewal information sooner slightly than later.
