I could see BanG Dream might be the next K-ON since Bushiroad is promoting this new IP everywhere. Of course, there are quite a number of ongoing shows that are having 2 cour like Gundam-Iron Blooded Orphans, Tiger Mask and ClassicaLoid.
So until then, see you in January for the new season and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
