Yuri!!! on Ice is a 12 episode anime series that aired in Japan throughout the final quarter of 2016. Anime streaming site Crunchyroll describes the series as such:
Yuri Katsuki carried the hope of all Japan on his shoulders in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, but suffered a crushing defeat in the finals. He returned to his hometown in Kyushu and hid away in his family's home, half wanting to continue skating and half wanting to retire. That was when the five-time consecutive world champion, Viktor Nikiforov, suddenly showed up with his teammate, Yuri Plisetsky, a young skater starting to surpass his seniors. And so the two Yuris and the Russian champion Viktor set out to compete in a Grand Prix like none the world has ever seen!
Yuri!!! on Ice the Movie: Ice Adolescence is set to release at some point in 2019. No specific date is known.
