Following the emotionally-filled season finale, fans of the hit anime, "Yuri!!! On Ice," have been eagerly awaiting its second season. Good news for fans is that "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 is currently in production and have been reportedly slated for an October 2017 air date!

According to Droid Report, the main plot of "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 will focus on the relationship between Yuri Katsuki, Viktor Nikiforov following Yuri's second place finish in the Grand Prix Finals. Viktor, Yuri's trainer slash love interest, has made up his mind to make a comeback to competitive figure skating while simultaneously taking the role as Yuri's coach.

Fans would remember that Yuri Katsuki has decided to call it quits after losing to Yuri Plisetsky in the Grand Prix Finals. However, it was Yuri Plisetsky who ultimately urged the Yuri Katsuki to continue his career in figure skating. And this led to Yuri Katsuki asking Viktor to train him again for another year, thus setting up an intriguing plot that could potentially affect their relationship in "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2.

Mitsuro Kubo, the creator of the controversial anime "Yuri!!! On Ice," has been elusive with regards to the actual air date of season 2. However, there is one thing that Mitsuro Kubo has confirmed, a good news for all "Yuri!!! On Ice" fans. In a recent interview, Mitsuro Kubo revealed that "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 is already in production. Also, a member of his staff has allegedly confirmed that "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 will air in October 2017.

Fans can expect that "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 will bring the same fierce figure-skating competition that has set it apart from the similarly-themed anime, "Love on Ice." Also, the storyline for the second season of "Yuri!!! On Ice" is bound to heat up not just because of the competition between the 3 world class figure skater, but also because of Viktor's and Yuri's relationship.

There are some questions that fans hope to see answered in "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2 such as how would Yuri and Viktor make their relationship work? Can Viktor handle being Yuri's coach while also competing against him? Can Yuri Katsuki beat the defending Grand Prix champion Yuri Plisetsky and the living legend Viktor Nikiforov?

"Yuri!!! On Ice" is an original anime so there are no manga versions its fans can turn to for reference. However, after its massively successful maiden season, fans should just trust Mitsuro Kubo to put on a great show for "Yuri!!! On Ice" Season 2.
