In an interview with Otaquest, series creator Sayo Yamamoto recently said: “I truly feel like the story of ‘Yuri!!! on ICE’ was able to be summed up over the course of it’s 12 episodes, but I’d be lying if I said that it was over. [Laughs] … We can’t stop, we won’t stop, we refuse to stop!”

Yuri on Ice Season 2 Plot: What to expect from the storyline of Yuri on Ice Season 2?
Yuri On Ice is a tale about the main protagonist Yuri Katsuki, a well known Japanese figure skater who was deemed the best of his nation but compared to the world skaters he’s far from being called the best in the world.
The world best skater title belongs to Victor Nikiforov, a Russian figure skater. Every skater looks up to him and admires him for his greatness in skating and his performance is known to be always unrealistically breathtaking.
Victor is truly something else. As for Katsuki Yuri, he still has a long way to go.
During the Grand Prix final, he came in the sixth position meaning his position was the very last in the world-class championship competition.
This was an extremely difficult moment for Katsuki Yuri and he decided to take a break from skating after his miserable loss at the Grand Prix. But things took a different turn when he trained under his role model Victor and the rest is history.
Many fans have also come up with their own theory that in the second season Victor and Yuri K will face off against each other in the competition which may cause a strain in their relationship but we’ll have to be patient and see what unfolds!
