'RWBY' New Shows With Animated Shorts Set in Remnant to Release in 2020

Following the end of RWBY Volume 7, Rooster Teeth has announced three new shows based on the popular IP.

All three new shows will arrive sometime in 2020 for Rooster Teeth FIRST members. Not much information about them was revealed, but they offer different concepts for different types of viewers. The first is a show featuring CRWBY hosted by Kerry Shawcross. This offers fans a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of the creators of RWBY revealing their methods, inspirations and how they bring each season to life.

The second will bring members of Rooster Teeth Animation and special guests together for a game of RWBY-inspired Dungeons & Dragons in the world of Remnant.

Speaking of the world of Remnant, the third RWBY show will feature a series of animated shorts. These shorts will tell fairy tales set in Remnant, presented in a new 2D-mixed-media style of animation.

Hey, everyone. I'm Laura Yates and I'm the new lead producer for RWBY. I've been with Rooster Teeth now for 3 years and most recently I was in charge of post-production for all of Rooster Teeth Animation. Today I'm happy to announce some really cool new RWBY projects in development that we're making especially for the FNDM. You guys, especially the FIRST members who show up early and mash the refresh button on Saturday mornings, are the reason we're able to keep building on this amazing universe every year. Because we wouldn't be able to keep going without the support, we want to give FIRST members more to experience between volumes, including original content and website features, as thanks for the commitment and loyalty.

New RWBY Shows

Later this spring, we're going to roll out a FIRST-exclusive behind-the-scenes talk show hosted by the one-and-only Kerry Shawcross. We don't have a name yet (give us ideas in the comments below!), but we can tell you that this show will give you more insight into how CRWBY brings the series to life each season, and what inspires them as artists.

Later in 2020, we will premiere a FIRST-exclusive live action series that sees members of Rooster Teeth Animation, and probably some special guests, play through a RWBY-inspired Dungeons & Dragons campaign set in the world of Remnant. Raise your hand if you want to see the Rooster Teeth Store roll out (no pun intended) some RWBY inspired D20 dice!

We're also in the early stages of development on a handful of new animated shorts featuring original RWBY fairy tales. Presented in a new 2D, mixed media style of animation, these would be the kind of bedtime stories that Taiyang might have read to Yang and Ruby when they were little. This show is slated to premiere later this year exclusively for FIRST members, with more info coming soon.

From CRWBY to You(BY)

And that's not even the end of it. Our amazing engineering team is cooking up some RWBY specific, FIRST-exclusive account customization features for your Rooster Teeth profile that we'll be rolling out throughout the year, some of which you'll see this spring.

And last but certainly not least, let's not forget that we're already hard at work on RWBY Volume 8, which you'll see this fall!

There'll be so much more to talk about with these projects in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes on the blog, and don't forget to follow Official RWBY and Rooster Teeth so you don't miss out on any details. Thank you again for all of your support. Without the patronage of our FIRST members we wouldn't be able to make this show that we love as much as you do. We'll always keep looking for ways to bring you even more stories from the world of Remnant. Here's to more RWBY in 2020!
