Just a fortnight after its premiere, Netflix's live-action series is set for a second season. This exhilarating update comes straight from the manga's creator, Eiichiro Oda, who relayed the message via his iconic Den Den Mushi. Oda expressed his gratitude to both long-time fans and newcomers, emphasizing the global appreciation the show has garnered. He revealed, "Netflix has decided to renew the show. The adventures of Inaki and the live-action straw hats will continue onward."
A significant highlight for the upcoming season is the introduction of Chopper, the reindeer-like character. Oda teased fans with a sketch, hinting at the essential role the 'great doctor' will play. The series has received global acclaim, especially in Japan, for its fidelity to the original manga. Tomorrow Studios, the producers, have ambitious plans, aiming for at least six seasons, given the extensive source material. However, fans might need to exercise patience as scripting for the second season is still underway.
