Produce 101 Season 2 (Hangul: 프로듀스 101 시즌 2) is the 2017 reality boy band survival show on Mnet. It is a large-scale project in which the public (also called ‘national producers’) “produces” a boy band by choosing eleven members among the 101 trainees from 54 entertainment companies. The public also chooses the group’s concept, debut song, and group name.

Produce 101 Season 2 is the nation’s first agency-collaboration boy band project after Produce 101, which brings together 101 trainees from different entertainment companies inside of South Korea, and 11 trainees shall be selected to form a boy group. The unit group shall perform four songs together for a year and shall release a debut album under the record label of CJ E&M. The winning group may later disband and join their own boy band which their agencies are planning.
Many agencies, including SM, YG and JYP have opted not to send trainees to participate in the second season. YG Entertainment did however send four model trainees under their subsidiary YGKPlus.
For the boys’ training, several artists have been recruited for the show. Singers Lee Seok-hoon, Shin You-me, rappers Cheetah and Don Mills, soloist Kahi and Kwon Jae-seung are respectively in charge of vocal, rap, and dance training.
