What to expect from ‘One Piece’ season two

After the tremendous success of the first season of Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece, fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of season two.

The second season of the live-action adaptation was announced merely two weeks after the first season debuted on Netflix. The manga creator Eiichiro Oda made the announcement himself, making it extra special for fans.

The Straw Hat crew may have set course for the Grand Line at the end of season one, but their sailing will be far from smooth. There will be more monsters, marines, and other magical beings they meet and fight on the way.

The popularity of the show and the vast source material from the original manga and anime suggest that the adventures with Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates have endless potential. 

In this article, we’ll delve into what fans can anticipate in One Piece season two if the show continues to remain faithful to the manga.

What will be the story in One Piece season two?

The story in One Piece season two will likely follow the adventures of Luffy and his crew as they move into the treacherous Grand Line. In the manga and anime, this marks the beginning of the Baroque Works Saga, where the Straw Hat Pirates confront the nefarious Baroque Works criminal organisation and become embroiled in the affairs of the Alabasta Kingdom.

Their journey will take them through various challenges, encounters with new allies and enemies, and discovering the kingdom’s hidden secrets. Expect epic battles, unexpected alliances, and the introduction of key characters like Vivi Nefertari and Tony Tony Chopper. 

During the entire course of the manga, which has over 1000 chapters at this point, Luffy’s crew expanded to include members like Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, Franky, Brook, Jinbe, and Nefertari Vivi, hinting at potential additions to their journey in season two.

The second season of One Piece will likely capture the essence of the Alabasta Saga while condensing or altering certain story arcs to fit the live-action format.

Who will be in One Piece season two?

While the official cast for One Piece season two has not been confirmed, the main characters will return. This includes Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Emily Rudd as Nami, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Jacob Romero as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji.

Additionally, new characters such as Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, and Vivi Nefertari are expected to join the cast. Jamie Lee Curtis, whose favourite character is Nico Robin, has expressed interest in playing Dr. Kureha, Chopper’s mentor and adopted mother, adding excitement to the potential cast lineup.

Will Tony Tony Chopper be in One Piece season two?

Yes, Tony Tony Chopper is expected to make his debut in One Piece season two. Oda hinted as much while announcing the second season. Chopper is part reindeer and part human due to the powers of the Hito Hito no Mi Devil Fruit he consumed. He joins the Straw Hat Pirates as their doctor. 

When is One Piece season two likely to release?

As of now, an official release date for One Piece season two has not been confirmed. The production of the new season will depend on various factors, including the SAGAFTRA and WGA strikes resolving.
