In a recent interview with Deadline, the One Piece live-action producers said that they hope the series gets 12 seasons.
Specifically, Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements were interviewed. They spoke about their hopes for the series’ future following its first 8-episode season.
When asked about more One Piece live-action seasons, Adelstein said that he hopes the show will get 12 seasons. Clements also chimed in, saying that the manga has over 1,080 chapters at this point, so there is a ton of material to cover.
Clements further explained that even if they get six seasons, they’ll only get halfway through the current chapters. This should mean that if everything goes according to plan, the One Piece live-action show will enter the timeskip following season six.
At the time of the interview’s release, Netflix had yet to announce the show’s second season. But late last week, Eiichiro Oda shared a message that confirmed the One Piece live-action series is renewed for a new season.
Given this quick renewal, the future is definitely looking bright for this live-action adaptation. Of course, the question is if it’ll even be possible to fully adapt the manga. After all, the manga is still ongoing. And while it’s on its final saga, there’s still no ending in sight.
Before we get ahead of ourselves thinking far into the future, we’ll first have to hope that the show manages to bring the fan-favorite Chopper to life.
