Answer:

You have not mentioned whether your manuscript had received major or minor revision. If it received a major revision the second time, it might need to be sent for review again.

However, it is clear from the status that the paper is still with the editor and has not been sent for review. You should send an inquiry immediately asking if the paper will be sent for another round of review and by when you can expect a decision.

You can also request the editor to expedite the decision. However, please ensure that you are polite and courteous in your email. Your manuscript is now at an advanced stage and you wouldn't want to annoy the editor at this time.
