Netflix’s Animated Series ‘One Piece’ Recruits First Group of Villains for Season 2


One Piece Season 2 hasn’t even started filming yet, but they’ve just added a novel batch of pirates for Luffy and company to defeat.

Considering the live-action adaptation of One Piece was such a success, it wasn’t much of a surprise when Netflix quickly renewed it for a second season. Not much information has been released about season two yet, but Netflix had some huge news to share today: the first batch of novel cast members have been announced, giving everyone a first look at Baroque Agents. Joining the cast for season two will be David Dastmalchian (“Ant Man,” “Late Night With the Devil”) as Mr. 3, Camrus Johnson (“Batwoman”) as Mr. 5, Daniel Lesker (“Raised by Wolves”) as Mr. 9 and Jazzara Jaslyn (Warrior) as Miss Valentine.

I won’t reveal too much, but the Baroque Agents from the original series are a crime syndicate intent on conquering the Kingdom of Arabasta, so the casting of these characters clearly indicates where the Straw Hats are headed next. As you can probably guess from the naming convention, there will also be a few other Baroque Agents making an appearance, and their main character hasn’t been revealed yet, so you’ll have to wait for more casting news on that.

Manga creator Eiichiro Oda has previously said that Tony Tony Chopper will be introduced in Season 2, and co-showrunner Matt Owens also noted that Dr. Kureha will be a huge part of it as well. However, there’s no indication of when everyone can expect season two, and given that casting is still ongoing, we probably won’t see anything more until 2025 at the earliest. That’s okay though, because Netflix is ​​also working on a novel One Piece anime that will start at the beginning of the series, so you have something to look forward to as well.
