Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club Anime Gets 2nd Season

First season of Kyoto Animation's anime had ended with “see you next summer” message last year

A poster at the Free! (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club) special talk event on Sunday revealed that production on a second season of the Free! anime has been green-lit.

The first season ended with a “see you next summer” message in the final episode.

The story of Kyoto Animation's series begins with Haruka Nanase, a high school boy who once swam competitively. After years of separation, his childhood friend Rin challenges him to a swimming match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka gathers together his former teammates Makoto and Nagisa once again, and also brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club. Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa, Rei, and Rin come together for a story of swimming, youth, and friendship.

The anime premiered in July, and Crunchy Roll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
