According to Crunchyroll, the second season of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” was originally going to premiere in October of 2021, but now, fans have to wait several more months. While specific details weren’t given apart from “various reasons,” Season 2 is now scheduled to drop in April 2022 — six months after the original date.
The first season ended over two years ago, so fans are understandably frustrated at the further delay. A Twitter user named @Nightdragonx1 wrote, “Pain. I understand, but still pain.” Another user named @lgVraxx tweeted, “Come on. This was announced [basically] a year ago. So how tf is it being postponed [basically] about 7 months. I don’t understand.” Some fans are choosing to see the bright side, like @AmishWarlords who wrote, “Good. Let them take their time. With fall stacked enough as it is, I’d hate for Shield Hero to wind up rushed and boring,” and @CEOofCastoria who added, “sad, i was waiting to watch it in this year. well, i guess more time will make it even better and of course keep everyone safe from covid.”
Keep an eye out for an official premiere date for Season 2 of “The Rising of the Shield Hero.”
