It looks like this is an unfortunate time for all the fans who are waiting for The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2. As one can expect, the much-awaited sequel of the fantasy story is delayed further. The makers of TROTSH have no plans of releasing the anime anytime soon. The first season aired the final episode in June 2019. Since then, the DR Movie production company is working on the project. The first installment was a product of Kinema Citrus. So, what is causing consistent delays in the release? Here is all that you must know.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Delay! Find Out Why
The official website of the anime has announced that The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 will be delayed yet again. However, they are yet to explain the reason behind this two-year delay. On the other hand, many unofficial counterparts suggest that the production is going through a rough time due to the pandemic. The lack of human resources and constraints of working from home is hitting hard on the completion of the work. However, it has been more than two years now, and fans are losing their grip over the initial hype.
There are also theories that point towards the future plans of the makers. This suggests that DR Movie might also be working on the third season of TROTSH. This justifies the uncalled delay of the second installment as well. So, will Season 3 arrive anytime soon? Here are all the odds.
Plans For A Third Season
As mentioned earlier, there are speculations that the makers of The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 are planning to bring both the second and third edition in a gap of two or three months. This means that the third season may also be under construction at DR Movie Studio. The coming seasons will essentially be a split-cour project with 13 episodes in each of the seasons. If true, then the wait is nothing but worthwhile. Otherwise, this extension is doing more harm than good.
