Nothing is official till now, all we hear are rumors.

See you again. Tokyo 20XX. Sayonara. But there’s no action on it.
The reason for the delay in the second season might be the lack of content. A total of 6 volumes are available for the show from which four volumes are already included in season 1. The remaining 2 volumes might not be able to provide enough content for the whole season.
