Nickelodeon USA Acquires 'Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V' Seasons 2 & 3; To Debut On Nicktoons USA During Early 2018

Nickelodeon USA has announced the exciting news in a email to ToonZone Forums member '4Kids4EverFandom' that Nickelodeon USA has picked up the broadcast rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V seasons two and three, and that Nicktoons USA will start to premiere the new seasons from early 2018!

Leading up to the debut of the second and third seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, Nicktoons will continue to air brand-new episodes from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V season one Sundays at 8:00am ET/PT.


Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, the fourth main spin-off anime series in the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, takes place in the near future place called Paradise City where Leo Corporation creates new advancements to Solid Vision that gives life to Duel Monsters. New advancements to Solid Vision give physical mass to monsters, environments, and allow players to interact directly with them. It also gives birth to challenging Action Duels. Action Duels allow duelists to traverse environments to locate Action Cards to help them in a pinch.

The story follows Yuya Sakaki who is a second year middle school student at Paradise City's You Show Duel School. Yuya's father, Yusho Sakaki, disappeared three years ago when he was scheduled for a Duel against the Action Duel Champion and was deemed as a coward who ran away. To clear his father's name, Yuya faces off against the current Action Duel champion and awakens a new power from his pendant known as Pendulum Summoning.


Yuya strives to master the art of Pendulum Summoning to become a great Dueltainer like his father. Yuya met a mysterious black masked Duelist who greatly resembles him named Yuto, who reveals that the world is split into four dimensions. Three of the dimension names come from the summoning methods used in the respective world. The names of the dimensions are Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Standard, which is the center of the four dimensions where Yuya lives in. Yuya and his friends become involved in the interdimensional conflict after Duelists from Duel Academy of the Fusion Dimension invade the Arc League Championship. Duel Academy Duelists turn several Duelists into cards under orders from Leo Akaba, Declan's father whose ambition is to unite the four dimensions. Declan forms the Lancers, a group of elite Duelists capable of fighting Duel Academy with Duelists selected based on the result of the championship to stop Leo.

Following the disappearance of Yuya's childhood friend, Zuzu Boyle, during the championship, Yuya and the other Lancers go to City of Synchro Dimension in hope to gain allies before Duel Academy invade it. To prove their worth as Duelists to the people of Synchro Dimension, the Executive Council of City signed them into Friendship Cup where Duelists compete in Turbo Duels for the right to challenge the Duel King, Jack Atlas.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V seasons two and three will see Yuya and his friends battling in the Synchro Dimension, Xyz Dimension and the Fusion Dimension.
