'RWBY' Volume 6 NYCC 2018 Panel Reveals New Details and Footage From Upcoming Season

Rooster Teeth returned to New York Comic Con to reveal more information on the upcoming season of RWBY before its release later this month.

Lindsay Jones (Ruby), Kara Eberle (Weiss), Arryn Zech (Blake), and Barbara Dunkelman (Yang) plus writer/directors Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross were in attendance in front of a massive crowd in Madison Square Garden. They took questions from the panel moderator and from fans, and hey even showed a brand new clip of the first episode.

The panel opened by showing a clip of the first episode from Volume 6. The clip opens on a train winding it's way through a snowy mountain range. Team RWBY and RNGR are in action fighting off winged bear Grimms.

It cuts to the White Fang hideout, where Adam has made his return. He wants his throne back but the rest of White Fang don't accept him. They still remember how he ran away from the last battle. Adam kills them and takes the throne. We also learn he's still mad at Blake for betraying him, and is holding a grudge.

The next scene showed RWBY and RNGR in a train station, preparing to leave for Argus. Qrow sends a letter to Atlas to explain what happened in the Battle of Haven. Blake and Ilia say their goodbyes. Ilia's going back to Haven to help Blake's family rebuild. The two share a hug, then part ways.

Sun shows up and says that he is going back to his home. He wants to team up with his old crew, including Neptune, who shows up to hit on Ilia. Blake jokes that he is barking up the wrong tree. After everything that happened in Volume 5, Sun decides he needs to become a better team leader. Blake decides she needs to be with her team. Blake gives Sun a kiss on the cheek and rejoins Team RWBY.

After the clip, the panel talked about the upcoming schedule. A new RWBY manga is set for release in 2019, and will drop simultaneously in English and Japanese. The novel RWBY: After the Fall from EC Myers will tell the story of Team CFVY. It's set for release in Summer 2019

Rooster Teeth and DC Comics will team up to bring a new RWBY comic book series in 2019.

The panel also discussed some details from the first episode of Volume 6. If it wasn't already clear from the footage, RWBY will be exploring Argus this season. But that's not all.

"There are new themes that the show hasn't explored yet," said Dunkelman.

There are new Grimm too. Manticore and sphinx Grimm are introduced early in the first episode. Miles said someone on Reddit made the manticore for fun, and Rooster Teeth contracted them because the design was so good.

RWBY Volume 5 ended on a happy note for the gang, fans of the animated series know that probably won't last long. Volume 6 will see Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang together again. but with the looming threat of Salem still out there, how much time will they have to enjoy their reunion?

RWBY Volume 6 will release on Rooster Teeth First on Oct. 27.
