“One Piece” won’t meet the fate of “Cowboy Bebop.” Just two weeks after its premiere, Netflix has decided to renew the series for a second season. “One Piece” is a production based on the popular manga and equally beloved anime. Since its premiere, the series has consistently ranked at the top of Netflix’s viewership rankings.

Executive producer and original manga creator Eiichiro Oda announced the news of the series’ renewal for a second season in a video posted on YouTube.
“Two weeks after the premiere, I received wonderful news: Netflix decided to extend the series!” Oda informed, thanking fans for watching the production. However, it will take some time to prepare the scripts, so he asks for patience.
