Dr. Stone is coming back for another adventure, and this time the crew is heading to the high seas. Shortly after the finale of Dr. Stone: The Stone Wars, the second season of the anime, Toho Animation released a trailer for a sequel that seems to cover the Age of Exploration arc from the manga.

The trailer shows off Senku and the rest of the Kingdom of Science as they hop aboard a boat and sail toward an unknown land. The trailer doesn’t give away too much, but it does give us a glimpse of some of the series’ regular characters all decked out in pirate outfits that look like they came straight out of One Piece.

The trailer also ends on a somewhat mysterious note as the camera pans to a person frozen in stone, who’s most likely one of fan-favorite characters from the manga.

One thing we don’t know yet about this new sequel is what form it will take. While it might just be a third season of the anime, it’s also possible that Toho could turn this story arc into a feature-length film as well. Another thing we don’t know yet is when this might be released. The second season of the anime was released about a year after the first, but there’s no official word yet on when this mysterious sequel will arrive.
