Joe Tracz Joins One Piece Live-Action Series as Season 2 Showrunner

Tracz will join Matt Owens and Steve Maeda

The highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s renowned manga series, One Piece, has just announced exciting developments for its second season. The series, which debuted exclusively on Netflix last August to much fanfare, is set to welcome Joe Tracz, known for his work on “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” as a writer, executive producer, and co-showrunner for its upcoming season.

Tracz will join Matt Owens, who served as writer, executive producer, and co-showrunner for the first season. Additionally, Steve Maeda, the co-showrunner of Season 1, will transition to the role of executive producer for Season 2. The combination of Tracz’s talent and the existing creative team promises to deliver another compelling installment of the beloved franchise.

According to reports from Deadline, filming for the second season is scheduled to commence in June, with an anticipated release date set for 2025. This news comes as a thrilling update for fans eagerly awaiting the continuation of the epic saga brought to life in the live-action format.

The series, which initially boasted a planned ten-episode first season, ultimately aired with eight episodes. Despite this deviation from the original plan, One Piece‘s live-action adaptation garnered immense popularity, topping Netflix’s global English-language television rankings for three consecutive weeks following its debut.

Adding to its accolades, the show recently clinched an award at the 2024 Writers Guild Awards in the “Children’s Episodic, Long Form and Specials” category, further solidifying its success and acclaim within the industry. Although the series was also nominated for Best Hair Styling in the Children and Teen Television Programming category at the 11th annual MUAHS Awards, it narrowly missed out on the win.

Behind the scenes, Tomorrow Studios, a collaboration between producer Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios, spearheaded the production of the live-action adaptation. With Becky Clements serving as an executive producer alongside Maeda, the series has benefited from a wealth of talent and expertise.

Overall, the addition of Joe Tracz to the creative team, coupled with the ongoing success and recognition garnered by the series, underscores the anticipation and excitement surrounding the forthcoming second season of One Piece‘s live-action adaptation. Fans can eagerly anticipate another thrilling chapter in the epic journey of Monkey D. Luffy and his crew as they continue to navigate the high seas in pursuit of the legendary One Piece treasure.
