Four years after the first season premiered, the beloved gay anime Yuri!!! on Icehas confirmed a follow-up movie with a brand new teaser trailer.

The original anime followed the story of Yuri Katsuki, a shamed professional figure skater who, after a disastrous Grand Prix Final, returns to his hometown and rethinks his career. Seemingly out of nowhere, five-time World Champion Victor Nikiforov agrees to coach Yuri and the two strike up a whirlwind romance amidst the tense figure skating competition.

The stunning animation and groundbreaking queer storyline garnered the series a massive and loyal fanbase around the world.

The team behind season one originally announced a Yuri!!! on Ice film entitled Ice Adolescence was coming in 2017 alongside an image of Victor Nikiforov bundled up in the Russian winter with his dog Makkachin, but radio silence since has dashed the hopes of many fans.

Their statement reads:

"The production of YURI!!! on ICE the movie: ICE ADOLESCENCE is still ongoing with the aim of further enriching the film. However, we have not yet reached the stage where we can announce the release date. 

Our team will continue to work diligently to deliver a film and share our unwavering love and dedication for skating. We deeply apologize to all fans for the circumstance and ask for your generous understanding."

So the movie is still in the works and we couldn't be more pumped! The prequel film will follow Victor's early days in his professional career. Though no premiere date has been set yet, the teaser trailer is sending fans into a frenzy.

"There's a first for everything,'" the trailer opens, followed by a 17-year-old, long silver-haired Victor gliding onto an Olympic ice rink.

CBR points out that "A pigeon flies across the screen, leading many fans to believe that Victor must be at the Grand Prix Trophée Éric Bompard, which is known for pigeons flying around inside the venue. Since the trailer says it's an Olympic season, this might be the competition before Victor's first Olympics."

Watch the trailer below!
