Netflix’s live-action drama “One Piece” is expected to continue for more seasons
On Sep 13th, Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, executive producers of “One Piece”, said through American media outlet Deadline, “There are endless things to explore, considering that there are more than 1,000 chapters in the manga.“
Adelstein shared, “We have hopes for 12 seasons, there’s so much material.” Clements made it clear that additional production is being considered, “We have plans with (writer) Matt Owens for how we would break multiple seasons, and I think even if we did 6 seasons, we would probably only use up half of the chapters of the manga. It really could go on and on and on.”
Besides, they drew attention by saying that they already talked about season 2 and that they also had conversations about seasons 3~5 with Eiichiro Oda, the producer of the series.
Since its release on Netflix, “One Piece” has been at the top of the global box office hit list and has received good reviews from fans as well as critics, with a high score of 95% on movie review media outlet Rotten Tomatoes.
