Season 2 of Netflix’s One Piece series adds Mr. 9, Mr. 5, Miss Valentine, and Mr. 3

Netflix’s live-action TV series “One Piece” has named its first new cast for its upcoming second season, adding comic book adaptations of four villains.

Raised by Wolves actor Daniel Lasker will play Mr. 9, Camrus Johnson will play Batwoman’s Mr. 5, Miss Valentine will be played by Gazzara Jaslin (Warrior), and Late Night With the Devil star David Dastmalchian. He will take on the role of Mr. 3.

These four characters are taken directly from the pirate adventure manga “One Piece”, created by Eiichiro Oda, and from the subsequent long-running anime television series, where they are key members of the Baroque Works crime syndicate.

The first season of Netflix’s One Piece series starred Inaki Godoy as the ambitious Pirate King Monkey D. Luffy, alongside Luffy’s Straw Hat crew played by Makinho as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, and Jacob Romero as Usopp. And Taz Skyler as Sanji. They are all reprising their roles for the second season and will have to compete with the members of Baroque Works.

The first season of “One Piece” was released on August 31, 2023 on Netflix to high viewership and critical acclaim.

According to the description of the first batch of episodes, “Monkey D. Luffy is a young adventurer who has longed for a life of freedom ever since he can remember. Luffy sets out from his small village on a perilous journey to find the legendary legendary treasure, One Piece, and become the Pirate King! But in order to find the ultimate prize, Luffy will need to assemble the crew he always wanted before finding a ship to sail, searching every inch of the vast seas, outrunning marines, and taking on dangerous rivals at every turn.
