The series One Piece has been premiering for more than 2 decades. That is, since 1999. Till now, the show has released a total of 20 seasons. But the structuring of these seasons has been done very unevenly. All the 20 seasons have really undetermined number of episodes. Some seasons have as less as 14 episodes while some others have as many as 118 episodes. But each and every season is focused on a particular story arc and therefore revolves around the characters in a specific setting. In this article, we shall discuss One Piece Season 21.

110 episodes of the 20th season have been aired as of 14th November 2021. Since the manga is not over yet and Oda is planning to write more chapters for the manga, the anime will surely follow it. This ensures the 21st season of the series. But unfortunately, because of the uneven schedule and episodes, the release date is not known. But the assumption is that it will be released in 2023.
Trailer of One Piece Season 21
Clearly, because the release date has not even been hinted at till now, the trailer is far away. The announcement of One Piece Season 21 has not been done yet. So we have to wait for some information or hints from the creators or the production house on the next arc of the manga. It is being assumed that the new season is ongoing in the production process and would be running until the Wano Country arc is concluded.
Which story arc is speculated to be adapted for Season 21?
Season 20 is dealing with the Wano Country arc right now. And the manga of One Piece is also still in the works. So we don’t know actually what the next arc would be and which arc would be adapted by One Piece Season 21.
