Another anime added to the list of shows getting delayed and Gotoubun no Hanayome or The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2 didn’t get an exemption. The show has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the show will not broadcast in 2020. According to TBS Japan, The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2 will be broadcasted in January 2021.
With the last chapter of the manga published in February 19, 2020 fans have been looking forward to a new season of The Quintessential Quintuplets which was announced soon after the first season finished airing. Initially planned for October, 2020 broadcast.
The announcement was made on TBS Japan official website.Here is a rough translation of the notice:

About The Quintessential Quintuplets
Here is a brief synopsis of the show:
“Considered a genius, high schooler Fuutarou Uesugi excels at studying and obtains a perfect score on every test. Due to his intense focus on that regard, he is a reclusive person with no friends. Additionally, he lives in a tight financial state as a result of family debts.
Fuutarou’s mundane lifestyle is interrupted when Itsuki Nakano, a new transfer student, contests him for his usual lunch seat. After a short altercation, Fuutarou emerges victorious by insulting Itsuki’s eating habits, which angers her enough to leave. However, when Fuutarou learns that he has been offered the private tutor position of a wealthy family’s academically hopeless daughters, he immediately regrets his prior encounter. It turns out that the beneficiaries of his tutoring are none other than Itsuki and her four identical siblings: the shy Miku, the cheerful Yotsuba, the devious Nino, and the mature Ichika!
Teaching these quintuplets may prove more difficult for Fuutarou than he initially expected, as the last thing they want to do is serious study. Now, Fuutarou must face the various challenges of tutoring five beautiful yet eccentric girls.“
As much as I was looking for the show myself this is sad but was to be expected. If you have not watched the first season I highly recommend watching the show. One of the best harem, romance comedy shows in a while. Besides this show OreGairu season 3 is also delayed.
