One Piece debuted in the Weekly Shonen Jump issue on July 22, 1997, with more than 1,000 published manga chapters along with 95 volumes, and is currently on its final chapter.
Netflix has so far ordered a 10-episode season for direct adaptation, with Steven Maeda (CSI: Miami, Lost) and Matt Owens (Luke Cage, Agents of SHIELD) serving as showrunners.
Production on One Piece was originally scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020 in Cape Town, South Africa, at the Cape Town Film Studios to be precise, after it was first announced in January 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Production resumed in March 2021, with host Maeda sharing updates with fans on social media. Season 1 of the direct adaptation of One Piece will cover the history of East Blue in the anime and manga.

Godoy, Maeda, and Owens are seen standing on a stage that closely resembles the Straw Hat Pirates’ first ship, the Going Merry.
