Early Premiere in 5 Countries for “The Rising of the Shield Hero 3”

The Rising of the Shield Hero 3

Unlike the resounding success of its first season, The Rising of the Shield Hero’s second installment was met with more muted comments. This cast doubt on the third season, which was confirmed in 2019 alongside the second.

After months of waiting, the new image and teaser finally confirmed what many fans had suspected. The premiere of the third season was also announced, set for this upcoming autumn.

On Wednesday, the team behind ‘The Rising of the Shield Hero’ revealed that the third season would offer sneak peeks in five nations. Beginning in Los Angeles on July 3rd, the “The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3 World Tour” will make its way across the globe until concluding in Japan in October 2023.

The anime’s voice actors will make a special appearance on stage at the culminating event in Japan.

Below is the provisional itinerary that was posted on the official website and Twitter for the globe tour. Additional updates will also be published on both sites.

The third season of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” will air in October 2023. The precise date has not been announced as of yet. The following people are involved in the show’s production:

I’m hoping the producers heard the feedback from season two’s detractors. If season three ends the same way, it will be a major letdown. If the season doesn’t turn things around, there may be little use in continuing the show at all.
