Netflix’s One Piece Season 2 and 3 Being Filmed Back to Back – Report

The live-action One Piece from Netflix is currently filming its second season in Cape Town, promising a new adventure as the Straw Hat pirates set sail on the Grand Line. A new report now claims that not only is season 2 currently being filmed but it will be filmed back to back with season 3.

The news comes from actor Brashaad Mayweather who played Patty in the first season of One Piece. “We’ll see if they flash back to it because they’re filming two seasons – season two and three – back to back starting soon. So we’ll see what happens,” said Mayweather in a recent interview.

This is quite big news as Netflix previously renewed the series for a second season but there was no mention of a third season or it being filmed back to back for that matter. Logically, this makes sense as the series, which is based on Eiichiro Oda’s best-selling manga, features a cast of characters that stay relatively unaged for a majority of their adventures (until a certain point, at least).

It would be difficult for the actors to retain their youthful counterparts as technically, the source material follows a very tight timeline that documents massive journeys taking place over a small period of time while on the Grand Line. It would be wise to film multiple seasons back to back or concurrently in order to maintain the ages of the characters that the actors are portraying.

Netflix hasn’t confirmed this information yet so we recommend taking it with a pinch of salt for now. However, it won’t be long before we get an official announcement and confirmation of that third season, as Netflix’s One Piece ended up being one of the most-watched shows in the streaming service’s history when it launched last year.
