Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the beloved anime and manga series “One Piece” has made waves since its debut. Charming audiences worldwide, the show became an instant success, breaking records for Netflix with over 18.5 million views and more than 140 million hours watched in its first week. Following this remarkable achievement, the series was quickly renewed for a second season. Now, exciting news for fans has emerged, suggesting that Netflix will continue to expand the series by filming the third season immediately after the second, as revealed by one of its stars.

This promising update for “One Piece” enthusiasts comes from Brashaad Mayweather, who played Patty in the first season. In an interview with Bruce Crossey (via ComicBook.com), Mayweather hinted at the back-to-back filming schedule for seasons two and three.

“Hopefully there’s a flashback scene with Patty. We’ll see if they flashback to it, because they’re filming two seasons – season two and three – back to back starting soon. So we’ll see what happens,”

Mayweather shared. While this news is thrilling, it is essential to approach it with caution, as Netflix has yet to provide official confirmation.

The Netflix adaptation is based on the iconic manga series written by Eiichiro Oda. The first season covered the East Blue saga, introducing viewers to a world where pirates with extraordinary powers vie for dominance over the seas. With the Straw Hat crew led by Monkey D. Luffy, played by Iñaki Godoy, the series has charmed fans with its blend of adventure and camaraderie. As the crew heads across the Grand Line, the second season is set to explore the Arabasta saga, promising even more excitement and new challenges.

Series editor Eric Litman teased the arrival of several new and “wonderful powers” in the upcoming season.

“I have read some of the scripts for [One Piece] season two,” Litman revealed. “I am pretty excited about where things are going. I don’t want to say too much. There are some pretty cool powers coming.”

The cast of the live-action series includes Emily Rudd, Mackenyu, Jacob Romero, and Taz Skylar, with Godoy leading as the pirate captain Luffy. The second season is expected to introduce new villains and deepen the storyline as Luffy and his crew face the challenges of leadership and responsibility. Co-showrunner Matt Owens hinted at these themes, stating,

“Without saying too much, and speaking to any new characters that we might meet, I would say a major theme that we’re working with in season 2 is the challenge of leadership. From Luffy’s perspective, he’s got his crew now, and they are setting out to the Grand Line. They’re doing the thing, and there are a lot of challenges that come with that responsibility. And that theme ties into some other stories and characters that I won’t give away just yet. But the challenge and leadership is a big theme for us in season 2.”

The future of Netflix’s “One Piece” looks incredibly bright, with the anticipated back-to-back filming of seasons two and three. Fans can look forward to more thrilling adventures, new powers, and deeper character development as the Straw Hat crew continues their quest. As we await official confirmation from Netflix, the excitement for the upcoming seasons remains high, promising to deliver the same charming storytelling that made the first season a monumental success.
