The Rising of the Shield Hero 2 Anime Season has been postponed until next April.

The official website for The Rising of the Shield Hero 2, the second season of the television anime series The Rising of the Shield Hero, announced on Thursday that the anime's premiere date has been pushed back to April 2022. The anime was originally scheduled to premiere in October 2021, with Crunchyroll also planning to stream it alongside the Japanese broadcast.

Masato Jinbo (Chaos;Child, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz!) will replace Takao Abo as director of the second season at Kinema Citrus and DR MOVIE. Keigo Koyanagi (Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars) is in charge of series creation once more. Masahiro Suwa (animation director for Chaika the Coffin Princess) is adapting Seira Minami's original character designs for animation once more. Kevin Penkin will return to write the music.

In 2019, Crunchyroll announced that the anime would have a second and third season.

One Peace Books will publish the original novel series as well as Aiya Ky's manga adaptation in English. The first volume of the novels is described by the publisher as follows:

Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!

The Rising of the Shield Hero anime series debuted in January 2019 with a two-hour special and ran for 25 episodes. Crunchyroll broadcasted the series live as it aired in Japan. Crunchyroll debuted the first dubbed episode in September 2018 at Crunchyroll Expo, which featured guests from the anime.
