One Piece, a fantasy adventure television series created by Matt Owens and Steven Maeda, is a live action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s manga series of the same name. The series debuted on Netflix on August 31, 2023, and received a positive response from viewers. The series shows the Straw Hat Pirates’ thrilling adventurous search for the famous ‘One Piece’ treasure.
Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, executive producers of One Piece, recently spoke with Deadline about the series’ huge success and how many seasons they think it might have. When asked if the second season will be renewed, Adelstein stated, “We have hopes for 12 seasons, there’s so much material.”
In response to the same question, Clements stated, “We’re over 1,080 chapters at this point in the manga. We have plans with Matt Owens for how we would break multiple seasons, and I think even if we did six seasons, we would probably only use up half of the chapters of the manga. It really could go on and on and on.”
In the same interview, when asked what is the best validation they have seen from fans, the producers responded that they have seen many of TikTok videos where fans have been pouring love on the series. He added, “The people in the office have shown us a lot of TikTok videos of people saying ‘this is going to be awful, this is going to be terrible’. And then they brought in TikTok videos of the same people going, ‘I was so wrong, this is so good’. So real skeptics have turned around and really have praised the show and have been very happy with it and very surprised at how good it was.”
