ONE PIECE is close to reaching Chapter 1000, a historic milestone that many, including Oda, would never have thought of when the series began serializing 23 years ago. Today we also know that the manga will end immediately after the end of the next story arc, however What exactly does the future hold in store?
Ironically, recently, Oda stated that immediately after completing ONE PIECE, he will bring to life a sequel called "TWO PIECES". The author joked about the possibility of continuing the story, but in reality The real answer to this question was given a few years ago, immediately after Masashi Kishimoto graduated from Naruto.
""If ONE PIECE ends and my editors ask me to do a sequel, I probably won't want that"explained the author,"Closing the manga means my freedom"In the same interview, Oda also spoke about the sale of the manga and what it means:"ONE PIECE was rejected twice before the first chapter was published. Personally, I don't feel that much of the burden of being number one at Jump. I'm just glad that so many fans read the magazine. However, I always try to write more and more interesting stories".
The interview in question is from the summer of 2018, and in fact a year and a half later, his work would have been surpassed by Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
ONE PIECE therefore ends with the discovery of the treasure. At the moment, Oda has made it clear that no sequels are planned, although one or more spin-offs may arrive in the near future.

OP Chapter 1000 is approaching. Oda said jokingly that he would like to start a new manga called "Two Piece" after OP, according to his editor in February (https://t.co/Mk0jaPSp0x).
