Yuri On Ice Season 2: Release Date
The first season of the Yuri On Ice anime closed with a silver medal victory that Yuri got in the Grand Prix Final.
Yuri's success cannot be separated from the efforts of Victor, his idol who helped raise his spirits when he initially wanted to retire from the world of ice skating.
The fans were left in some speculation at the end of the first season, many theories have sprung up that describe where the setting appears right at the end of episode 12.
There are two theories that the place that appears at the end of episode 12 is Hasetsu, the hometown of Yuuri, while another theory says that the setting of the place is St. Petersburg which is Victor and Yurio's base rink city.
Whatever it is, until now fans are still hanging in wait and can only speculate.
If the place is St. Petersburg then Yuuri has moved to Russia to practice skating with Victor, and if this theory is true then it is very likely that Yuri On Ice season 2 will tell the story of Yuuri's journey to win the Grand Prix Final with Victor. This does not erased the possibility for them to become a partner to get the Gold Medal.
But to be sure, we still have to wait for a statement from the MAPPA studio.
Since 2017 news about the continuation of this anime has continued to blow and even the studio had given a statement that the second season would be released in 2019.
However, for one reason or another, in 2019 the second season was canceled.
Even so, in 2020 the studio surprised fans by releasing a prequel trailer for this anime entitled Yuri On Ice: Ice Adolescence which tells the story of Victor's past before meeting Yuuri.
Until now, the studio has not provided an official release date for the prequel or the second season of this anime.
The fans are always hopeful and their enthusiasm never goes out to wait for the continuation of the new season so we can wait for the studio to release Yuri On Ice Season 2 in 2022.
Hopefully there will be an official statement that can immediately satisfy the fans for the continuation of this anime!
