The highly anticipated moment has finally arrived for The Rising of the Shield Hero fans, as we got a new teaser, key visual and the release date for the upcoming Shield Hero Season 3.
Here’s everything we know so far regarding Shield Hero anime season 3 and when it will be released, and all the other details that are important.
The anime series The Rising of the Shield Hero, known as Tate no Yūsha no Nariagari in Japanese, is based on a light novel of the same name published in 2013.
The Shield Hero light novel series is written by Aneko Yusagi and illustrated by Seira Minami.
Shield Hero is a great isekai anime series with fantasy elements, loved by people worldwide
When Will the Third Season of Shield Hero Be Released?
Unfortunately, there has not been a confirmed release date for the new season. Before confirming a release date, we must wait for additional information regarding the third season.
The third season is in production already, so it’s likely that the series will likely come out in late 2023 or early 2024.
We can expect to receive updates soon about the release date, and episode count, according to the official anime website.
One thing we know is that studio Kinema Citrus and DR Movie will animate the third season as well.
Also, from the Key Visual for season 3, it looks like it will adapt until volume 16, which indicates it will be two cour, so 24-26 episodes. Or be extremely rushed, both are an option.
When it gets a release date on the Shield Hero official Twitter account, we will let you know
Is There a Trailer for The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3?
As of February 2023, no teaser or trailer for the new season has been released. Watch the trailer for the second season for now, and let’s hope the upcoming season can look better since the second season wasn’t the best!
What Will the Plot of Shield Hero Season 3 Be?
The upcoming third season of the Shield Hero anime will continue the story from the second season. The Key visual shows trash with the Staff sitting in a broken castle with the queen’s crown amongst the rubble.
The first two seasons of the anime adaptation of Shield Hero have covered light novel volumes 1 to 9. So, If you want to continue the story from where the second season ended, have a look at Shield Hero light novel volume 10 in English.
As of February 2023, there have been 22 volumes released so far. That means there is even material available for a potential Shield Hero Season 4 down the line.
I highly recommend checking out the Shield Hero Light Novel. Many fans prefer novels over anime because anime is rushed.

Where Can the New Season Be Watched?
You can watch the Shield Hero anime series, both seasons on Crunchyroll, and only there since it’s an exclusive series for them. It’s not available for streaming on any other platform like Netflix or Hulu.
The reason for the exclusivity is that Crunchyroll is heavily involved in the creation of the series. Without them, it would likely not be made.
Shield Hero will have a season 3, but the third season doesn’t have a release date yet.
We should learn more about the Shield Hero Season 3 Episode 1 release date in the next few months.
