Japan would have to announce something first. Since there hasn't been word of a second season being made, your best bet is to read the manga. IF a second season is announced, you'll hear about it on all the Anime related news sites. Unless sales were spectacularly bad on the DVD sales, we can only speculate as to why more hasn't been made yet.

1. There is already a topic on this:

2. There isn't likely to be one. Unfortunately, just because we like something does not mean it was popular enough in Japan for a new series to be made. As it was a late night series, DVD sales were what determined if a second series would be made or not.

aww... too bad they could've earn a fortune if they make another season of that series.. maybe the guys working on skip beat thinks it'll be a drag if they continue working in anime series so, they just stick to making manga instead... as a fan, i'm pretty sad

From the point of view of the manga publisher, an anime series is primarily seen as a promotional tool. A one or two season anime can accomplish that task quite effectively. After that, their only interest would be if they were offered money up front, or a cut of DVD sales which had proven to be good in the past. A third possibility is if the popularity of the manga began to wane, but this could also make a studio & network more hesitant to invest in an anime.

I would say if the original DVD sales were at least decent, there would be a slim chance of a second season if the manga ends soon. If it continued to run for years, however, there would be good reason to restart the anime, as too many people familiar with the original anime would have "aged out" of the target market in Japan.

For example, from what I gather, Inuyasha: The Final Act didn't do nearly as well as the original series, despite having a much tighter, filler-free storyline. This no doubt due in no small part to the 5 year gap between series. Skip Beat passed the 2 year gap point earlier this year.
