The news of the second and the third season being renewed was announced during the Crunchyroll Expo 2019. After confirming the news on a tweet, the streaming service confirmed, saying, "Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand, is excited to announce that 'The Rising of the Shield Hero' is coming back for two more seasons," This event attracted a massive crowd and after the news of the renewal went live, the fans were treated with a synopsis of the second season. The official synopsis, as revealed during the expo, reads, "As Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo are getting new companions, they're also encountering a new enemy. Learn more about the huge turtle carrying a town on its back, and how the Shield Hero and his team will be fighting along their journey."
The plot follows the story of Naofumi Iwatani, who is described to be an easygoing Japanese man who is summoned to a parallel world along with three other men from the same world. His purpose over there is to fight interdimensional monsters called waves and to become the world's Legendary hero. Each of these heroes has their own legendary equipment that comes to them when it is summoned. Naofumi's weapon is the legendary shield while the other contenders receive a sword, a spear, and a bow. Since he is different from the other heroes that are fully supported by their kingdom and have also gained a lot of allies, Naofumi is not so lucky. In his case, everything took a turn for the worse after his only companion, who is also the princess, has betrayed him. Not only is he betrayed, but he is also robbed off of all his belongings. Moreover, he is also falsely accused of being a sexual offender. After all these unfortunate events, Naofumi is forced to be trained as a hero alone and also has to somehow make his ends meet.

No trailer has been released for the second season as of now. But, the good news is that since the show has been renewed for a second season, the fans will get to see the trailer or a teaser shortly after it goes into production.
No spoiler as such is available as of now. The news of the renewal has come in pretty recently. Along with the second season, the third season was also renewed and the synopsis of the second season was also released to the fans and audience in the Crunchyworld Expo 2019.
The reason why the series was renewed for two seasons at once is because of the immense success that the show witnessed after the first season aired. It is natural for the fans of anime to wait for years in order to get a new season. Hence, when 'The Rising of the Shield Hero' was announced to be renewed for two more seasons, it mainly indicated that the show was widely successful during the first one.
