Netflix’s One Piece has been considered one of the best live adaptations of anime/manga. In the finale, the show hinted at a second season, which has been confirmed, and fans were excited to know who would play what roles, especially Smoker. 

Netflix’s One Piece was released on August 31, 2023, and spent 8 weeks in Netflix’s Global Top 10. It was top 10 in 93 countries and debuted at #1 in 46, in Netflix’s Global Top 10. The live-action which is based on the manga series by Eiichiro Oda, follows the adventures of the Straw Hat Pirates, and their captain, Monkey D. Luffy, who is also the protagonist of the show.

Season 1 of the series starred Iñaki Godoy (Monkey D. Luffy), Emily Rudd (Nami), Mackenyu (Zoro), Taz Skylar (Sanji), and Jeff Ward (Buggy the Clown) among others playing the lead roles. Well, most of the cast is expected to reprise their roles, here’s some of the new members joining the band of pirates and enemies.


Callum Kerr as Smoker

Fans were curious to see who would play Smoker in the live adaptation as producers of the show had teased him in the Season 1 finale. Callum Kerr (Monarch) will be playing the role of Smoker and we expect him to be the main antagonist in One Piece Season 2. 

Julia Rehwald as Tashigi

Julia Rehwald (Fear Street trilogy) will play the role of the marine officer who serves under Smoker. She is another antagonist, but it is unclear what the writers of the series have in store for her.
