Who are the new characters introduced in One Piece Season 2?

New characters for One Piece Season 2 include Captain Smoker played by Callum Kerr, Tashigi played by Julia Rehwald, Dalton played by Ty Keogh, and Wapol played by Rob Colletti. Additionally, Werner Coetser will portray Dorry, Brendan Murray as Brogy, Jazzara Jaslyn as Miss Valentine, Camrus Johnson as Mr. 5, and Daniel Lasker as Mr. 9. Jamie Lee Curtis is also speculated to join as Doctor Kureha.

The One Piece live-action adaptation on Netflix has garnered significant attention for its faithful recreation of Eiichiro Oda's beloved manga. The first season, which introduced audiences to the Straw Hat Pirates, was well-received, and the new cast in Season 2 aims to extend the story into the Drum Island and Alabasta arcs. The anticipated reveal of Tony Tony Chopper, the show's first major CGI character, and other seasoned actors joining the cast, suggests the series' ambitious scope and continued dedication to capturing the spirit of the original work.
