After dropping an outline of its film and TV slate for 2023 in mid-January, Netflix is slowly adding new titles to the mix.
One of those is One Piece, a live-action TV series adaptation of the ongoing manga. Cowboy Bebop, Netflix's 2021 live-action adaptation of the anime of the same name, was canceled after one season.
