Mysterious Key Visual Reveals Season 4 of ‘The Rising of The Shield Hero’


  • ‘The Rising of The Shield Hero’ will get season 4 on Crunchyroll.
  • The story might focus on Raphtalia and her backstory as foreign royalty.

The story of a shield hero, who rises through the ranks, has captured the imagination of many fans. Although the series may not have achieved the same level of popularity as ‘Solo Leveling’ or ‘Jujutsu Kaisen,’ it still has a dedicated following.

The anime has delivered three thrilling and action-packed seasons, and now it is all set to release another mind-blowing installment.

Kadokawa has announced that season 4 of ‘The Rising of The Shield Hero’ has been greenlit. The new season will be streamed on Crunchyroll.

The key visual for season 4 appears relatively plain. It gives the impression of an impending cataclysmic event, with a dragon being the only visible character.

Season 4 is expected to continue the story from where it left off at the end of season 3, with a particular focus on Raphtalia, the secondary protagonist of the series. The upcoming season may also delve into her backstory as foreign royalty.

Although the production has been announced, there is no information about the returning cast and staff members. However, several key cast and staff members from the previous seasons celebrated the news online, hinting at their return. Kinema Citrus, the Japanese animation studio will continue with the production.

The release date for the new season has not been announced, not even a tentative one. Nevertheless, given the relatively short turnaround time of previous seasons, it is expected that the release date will be disclosed in late 2024 or early 2025.

If you’re not already a fan of Naofumi, now is the perfect time to be one. So, start watching the previous seasons before the new one comes out.
