The main staff for the second season was also announced, with most of the staff from the first season returning to reprise their roles.

IDOLiSH7 is a multimedia franchise which started out as a rhythm game in Android and iOS developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment, with Lantis credited for the music. After several manga adaptations and novelizations, the franchise was adapted into an anime series by TROYCA, with the first season airing from January to May 2018. The series’ plot is described by Crunchyroll as such:
”A group of aspiring idols gather at Takanashi Productions and are entrusted with the company’s future. The seven men who have just met represent a variety of totally different personalities. However, they each have their own charm and possess unknown potential as idols. Forming a group, they take their first step together as “IDOLiSH7.” Their brilliantly shining dancing forms onstage eventually begin captivating the hearts of the people. In the glorious but sometimes harsh world of idols, they aim for the top with dreams in their hearts!”
