Yuri on Ice Season 2 has been long-awaited by its community. There are a lot of anime shows out there. Yuri on Ice is one of the really good ones. A critically acclaimed show that received awards in all seven of its categories in Crunchyroll’s inaugural ‘The Anime Awards’ is also deeply loved by its fans.
The show received a lot of praise in the international community and has garnered a loyal fan-following. Its depiction of a same-sex relationship was heartwarming and very well received. It not only created the much-needed conversation about same-sex relationships but it is believed to be the first one ever depicted in anime.
Yuri On Ice Season 2: Story (Spoilers)
The story’s focus is on Yuri Katsuki who puts his career on hold after a heart-breaking loss in The Grand Prix Final. When he returns to his hometown he perfectly recreates an advanced routine which was done by his idol, Russian figure skating champion Victor Nikiforov.
This is secretly recorded by his friend who uploads it on the internet. Once Victor sees this, he travels to Yuri K.’s hometown to coach him and help revive his skating career. However, Victor forgets a promise he made to another skater by the name of Yuri Plisetsky.
Victor had promised to choreograph a routine for Yuri P. if he won the junior world championships. As a result, he makes the two Yuris compete against each other to see who he will coach. Yuri K. wins.
Both the Yuris vow to compete for their countries in The Grand Prix Final which they do. During the Grand Prix Final, Victor and Yuri K. get close and explore their feelings for each other. The final ends with Yuri K. taking home the silver medal and Yuri P. taking home the gold.
As a result, Yuri K. decides he doesn’t want his skating career to end. He moves to St. Petersburg to train with Yuri P. and Victor. Yuri On Ice Season 2 will most likely continue from this point on.
Season 2 of Yuri On Ice: What To Expect
There haven’t been many clues that have specifically shown what the story of season 2 will be. On the Blu-Ray version, there is a new skating routine by Yuri P. but that doesn’t tell us anything about the story. What we can expect is more focused on the relationship between Yuri K. and Victor.
Since Victor will have resumed his career, we can expect to see them competing against each other. How the competition will affect their relationship can also be expected. So, a lot of romance, emotions, and most importantly, a lot of skating.
Yuri On Ice Season 2: Release Date
There is no official release date. However, fans are anticipating a 2020 or 2021 release date. The expectation is that it will be released along with the ‘Ice Adolescence’ special movie. As a result of Covid-19, there have been delays without any news.
It is 2020 and we still don’t have the movie or information about Yuri On Ice Season 2. You can watch the short teaser for the special movie which came out in 2018 below.
Even though there isn’t much information, we are hopeful that there will be news soon. The delays may be frustrating but there is hope. Funimation released the first season on Blu-Ray in 2019 giving fans a taste of the show which they hadn’t had since 2016.
Yuri On Ice: Where to Watch
There is no official word on that yet. While you wait for the news, you can watch the first season on Crunchyroll or on Funimation. If you have the Blu-Ray version of the first season, that’s even better! It’s more than likely that we will be watching season 2 on these websites whenever it comes out.
