The Rising Of The Shield Hero season 3 — Has it been confirmed?
Even in the past, we have witnessed that a production company would be more than happy to greenlit a sequel if the DVD, as well as Blu-ray sales, have performed well in Japan. In recent years, we have witnessed the anime industry shifting in the direction. The first installment did so well that publisher Kadokawa who publish both the manga and the light novel series under the label of Media Factory, disclosed that their profits for the quarter had risen mostly because of the Shield Hero anime series.
For all the people who have not caught up watching this anime series, you guys should know that the second season has not aired yet. Although, The Rising Of The Shield Hero season 2 release date is set for 2021. At this point, the number of episodes has not been announced yet by the creators, though. We can expect the second season to be a two cour anime installment. A cour is actually a three month TV broadcasting unit that is based on physical outings. Generally, it is seen that the animes have usually had 10 to 13 episodes per cour.
