Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3 Release Date: When will it air?
In September 2019, the series was extended for two more seasons. The show creators have already announced the series renewal for season 3, but an exact date was not declared.
During a special stage event at Crunchyroll Expo 2019, The Rising Of The Shield Hero’s Third season was acknowledged to be in development. Even more, the Kadokawa producer stated at the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2020 that the anticipation for season 3 will not be too long.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 had only 13 episodes, compared to the run of the first season. This modification fueled rumors that the 2nd and 3rd seasons would run concurrently.
If that is the case, we may see season 3 of Shield Hero after a one or two-season break. That means the third season of The Rising of the Shield Hero will officially launch in either October 2022 or January 2023.
Surely, this is all speculative at the moment.
