The Rising of The Shield Hero was not just renewed for 2nd season, but 3rd season was confirmed too! However, this isn’t the latest news because it was announced at Crunchyroll Expo in 2020.

If you wish to be updated on The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2, then you are in the right place because we have covered all the latest updates in the article below.
So, without any further delay, let’s dive right into it!
What is The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Release Date?
Yes, the second installment of the show was confirmed by the creators themselves. Crunchyroll Expo (2019) revealed that the show would have two more installments. Then later that year, released the release date for the show too.
When will the second installment of The Rising Of The Shield Hero release?
The sequel was scheduled to be released in October of 2021, but the release date was delayed until next year’s April due to some issues.
Showrunners also confirmed that season 3 wouldn’t take long to release. Instead, it will follow the second season shortly. Did not disclose the reasons behind the 2nd season’s delay completely.
They announced that the pandemic is the real reason behind the season’s delay. As the production was hindered by it, the anime was unable to release on time. However, fans believe that there are some other reasons behind it, which they are unwilling to tell.
We don’t know any specific release date yet, but as soon as we get any leads on the situation, we will let you know at the earliest!
Will the voice cast come back for the sequel of the show?
Nothing regarding the voice cast has been announced yet. Deducing from this, hopefully, there aren’t any changes in the voice cast.
But depending on the story development, there might be some additions to the voice cast due to new characters. And if this is the case, then The Rising of The Shield Hero’s official social media accounts will update its fans.
Up till now, it looks like most of the original cast will be coming back. This means that you’ll get to hear:
– Kaito Ishikawa as the voice of Naofumi
– Asami Seto as the voice of Raphtalia
– Rina Hidaka as the voice of Filo
– Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as the voice of Ren Amaki
– Makoto Takahashi as the voice of Motoyasu Kitamura
– Yoshitaka Yamaya as the voice of Itsuki Kawasumi
– Maaya Uchida as the voice of Melty
Other than this, there are certain production changes too. Takao Abo will direct the show’s sequel. According to some insiders, this time, Kinema Citrus and the South Korean animation studio are working together to produce the second season of The Rising of The Shield.
What will the plot of The Rising of The Shield Hero’s sequel explore?
The writers haven’t given much information on the plot, but they have hinted at some of it. For instance, the new battles in the upcoming season will be very violent. Each character of the show will reach the maximum of their powers to be an exciting season.
As the anime is based on the novel (of the same name), the plot will also be similar. But there might be some slight changes as the adaptations are not always exact.
As shown in the trailer, things will resume from where they ended in season 1. We will most likely get to see more of Glass in season 2 as the first season couldn’t focus on her much and because her character arc is incomplete.
We are expecting to see more of Naofumi’s adventures outside the kingdom he was in. Most likely, these decisions’ consequences will make the main storyline for the second installment.
Where can I watch the trailer for The Rising of The Shield Hero’s sequel?
You can watch the trailer on YouTube.
The official trailer teased Naofumi’s new adventures and characters who will be joining his party.
But there is still one year left for its release. And we hope that the wait will be worth it. So, that was everything relevant you needed to know about the show’s renewal.
