Netflix has tried a number of times to make a success out of anime. The most recent was Cowboy Bepop. Despite big production values, the show wasn't a success like One Piece and was unfortunately cancelled after one season.
Another Manga, Death Note, was made into a Netflix film - it wasn't a critical success but did well for the streaming site. The might of Stranger Things' Duffer Brothers are looking to adapt the comic book into a TV show.
According to Variety, scripts for the second season were already written - so there was definitely hope that One Piece would move beyond its first season. Given how Netflix is, this is always a gamble.
It is thought that there will be a wait for the second season of One Piece, with Variety noting it could be somewhere between a year and 18 months before we see it.
Plenty of time to catch up on the show, then, if you haven't watched it yet.
