Based on the popular manga and anime series of the same name, “One Piece” follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young pirate who searches the Blue Sea for the mythical One Piece treasure. If he can do it, he will become King of the Pirates.

Iñaki Godoy stars as Luffy. The cast also includes Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji. Additional cast members are Vincent Regan, Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Morgan Davies, Aidan Scott, Langley Kirkwood, Jeff Ward, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, McKinley Belcher III, Craig Fairbrass, Steven Ward, and Chioma Umeala.

Matt Owens and Steven Maeda serve as writers, executive producers, and showrunners on the series. “One Piece’s” original creator Eiichiro Oda also serves as an executive producer along with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios. The series was created in partnership with Shueisha and produced by Tomorrow Studios and Netflix.

The renewal is hardly a surprise. The series has been at the top of Netflix’s weekly top 10 charts for the past two weeks, and has been well-received by critics. Adelstein had also previously told Variety that scripts were already finished for a second season. Clements followed up by saying that the second season could be ready “somewhere between a year and 18 months” from now.
