The third season has been confirmed and will have Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo trapped in a labyrinth dimension.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero is an action-packed isekai fantasy adventure anime. The story begins following four otherworldly heroes wielding the sword, spear, bow, and shield. Protagonist Iwatani Naofumi was framed for a crime he didn't commit and forced to fight off the Waves alone with his shield. He was branded as an outcast and a criminal. The allegations filled hatred in his heart, forcing him to set out alone and vowing vengeance against those who wronged him. However, he doesn't remain alone for long. By the end of season one, many characters come into the story with some being Naofumi's allies, some his enemies, and others somewhere in-between.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 came out on April 6, 2022. According to Anime Geek, new episodes were streaming on Crunchyroll at 6:00 am PST/9:00 am EST on Wednesdays and included North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.

What about season 3? The upcoming season had been already confirmed way back in 2019. It was also confirmed at Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2020 that the wait for the third season won’t be too long. Unfortunately, The Rising Of The Shield Hero season 2 release date got delayed from Fall 2021 to Spring 2022. So now season 3 has been pushed back as well. It looks like the release date could be scheduled for Fall 2022 or Winter 2023.
There are no details yet but perhaps The Rising Of The Shield Hero season 3 will open with the events of light novel Volume 8 or manga Volume 16. The Rising Of The Shield Hero season 3 will have Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo trapped in a labyrinth dimension. According to Anime Geek, "The legendary hero Kizuna Kazeyama is introduced as the Hunting Hero, whose weapon limits her to harming monsters and not humans." Also, "With the help of Kizuna, Naofumi and Rishia/Lecia are able to escape the labyrinth and find Raphtalia, Filo, Glass, L’arc, and Therese."
