MAPPA did not renew the anime series for a second season till now. The reason for the delay of the second season is the studio is now focusing on the upcoming Yuri on Ice feature flick titled Ice Adolescence. But we can still expect a second season because the ratings of the series are very high.
We cannot imagine that the anime series just ended with the first season. Yuri on Ice future is bright. Also, there are reports that in the second season we can see Victor competing against Yuri.
