When can fans expect season 2?

The reason the series was so successful was because Oda sensei supervised everything and was very involved in the production and even made the actors redo some scenes until he felt satisfied.

If he had rushed the series we might not have been able to see such results. The series was announced in the year 2022 and was released in the year 2023.

Quality production takes time especially when the cast members and staff also want to make sure that they give their best.

We can expect a second season 2 anywhere between 1-2 years with even more improved acting, soundtrack and direction.
